Identifying U.S. investment opportunities

Our lawyers advise foreign nationals and international investor groups new to the U.S. market, providing our clients with access to our network of property brokers and companies and assisting the clients in identifying and evaluating appropriate investment opportunities. Currently, the British pound, the euro and other foreign currencies are strong in comparison to the American dollar, providing exceptional value in a variety of areas, including commercial real estate, franchising and the hospitality industry. British and Irish investors are particularly active in the Florida commercial real estate market.

Business formation and domestic investment partners

U.S. and state laws restrict foreign nationals to ownership interests in certain forms of entities. Attorneys Franzblau and Shah advise clients on strategies that allow them to enter the U.S. market efficiently. Depending on a client's circumstances, we may assist the client in formation of a limited liability company (LLC) or limited partnership, or in finding a U.S. citizen partner for a Sub-S corporation or other restricted form of entity.

Financing foreign investments

Our clients benefit from our relationships with banks and private investors, and our attorneys extensive experience in finance law. In addition to conventional and private investment, attorney Richard D. Franzblau is certified to handle Small Business Association (SBA) loans. SBA loans are vehicles particularly appropriate for entrepreneurs and investors in new ventures.

Mr. Franzblau has over 20 years of experience in those areas, and our firm is prepared to provide a full range of business law services to support hotel owners and franchisees.
