But what happens when things don’t go according to plan? On this episode of EB-5 Investment Voice, Mona Shah and Mark are joined by Rohit Kapuria of Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP to discuss what happens when business and family intersect and how to prepare for disagreements and disputes. Listen in to hear how EB-5 attorneys prepare offering documents that protect the busines, no matter what happens!
