Peter Zhang

Partner, New York

Background

Peter focuses on representing entrepreneurs, skilled professionals, and other exceptional individuals—including artists, scholars, and multinational executives—who possess extraordinary abilities, academic credentials, or qualifying investment objectives that contribute to the economic vigor of the United States.

Investment-based immigration petitions are one of Peter’s select areas of practice. He has successfully represented many EB-5 investors from diverse national and cultural backgrounds. In addition to his investor-side efforts, Peter also regularly advises regional centers, developers, business owners, and other stakeholders. Peter is an active and astute participant in the structuring of both direct and regional-center EB-5 projects, as well as other private placement offerings involving a broad range of industry sectors. Peter’s comprehensive approach to investment-based immigration has helped many clients—regardless of national origin or industry—achieve their U.S. immigration objectives.

Peter regularly represents U.S. companies seeking to sponsor and employ foreign workers on a temporary or permanent basis. This competency extends to multinational organizations for whom international transfers and rotations of executive or management personnel is a routine and necessary practice. Peter’s professional diligence and responsiveness to the latest developments in immigration law (as well as that of his team) has enabled an impressive roster of U.S. companies to hire and retain talented foreign prospects.
