Reza Rahbaran is the managing attorney at Rahbaran & Associates. Reza’s main area of practice is business immigration under the EB-5 program and the related U.S. trade sanctions. He has advised regional centers on developing new projects that qualify for EB-5 investments in multiple industries, including the creation of new regional centers, existing regional centers as well as individual investors. He has implemented internal compliance practices for regional centers that address ongoing immigration and sanctions regulations. He also advises foreign nationals on immigration under the EB-5 regional program with particular focus on countries that fall under U.S. trade sanctions regulations and currency restrictions.
Reza has extensive experience assisting regional centers to comply with and address issues related to U.S. trade sanctions. In this capacity he works extensively on issues arising before the U.S. Department of Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”).
In his trade sanctions practice, he represents both private individuals and entities in a variety of matters before OFAC seeking to not only protect their rights in current legal matters, but also to make certain that they become informed and aware of what it takes to comply with U.S. trade sanctions. Reza’s representations before OFAC frequently involve investigations concerning violations of the Iranian Transactions Regulations, Presidential Executive Orders and Syrian sanctions. As part of these representations, Reza has worked to have individuals names removed from OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals list, procure OFAC specific licenses to engage in transactions prohibited by OFAC, draft voluntary self-disclosures, develop and implement OFAC compliance programs for regional centers, and provide general counseling on OFAC related matters.
Reza has been featured regularly on television networks as an EB-5 and U.S. sanctions expert and has written articles on the sanctions and the EB-5 program.
