Matthew Galati and Benjamin S. Green

On February 10th and 11th, Green and Spiegel EB-5 Section Head Matthew Galati and Associate Benjamin Green attended the UGlobal Immigration Expo in Dubai. Galati served as the chair/moderator of a panel discussing Investment Immigration options throughout the world. The Panel, consisting of three Attorneys from around the globe as well as Mr. Galati, covered many hot topics in the investment immigration field, as well as modern trends affecting the industry at large.
