Dawn M. Lurie
Dawn M. Lurie is a senior counsel in the Immigration Practice Group of Seyfarth Shaw LLP’s Washington, D.C. office. She is recognized in the legal community as a forward thinking immigration compliance authority and EB-5 investment strategist. She co-chairs the firm’s EB-5 Immigrant Investment practice and has more than 25 years of experience providing assistance with global and U.S. immigration processes. Ms. Lurie is proud to be considered a trusted partner to corporate clients and is relied on for her ability to spot impending government enforcement trends. Her ability to balance business necessity with regulatory reality is also highly valued. When advising clients, Ms. Lurie presents creative, yet compliant, solutions and identifies issues long before they become problematic. Her practice includes a range of cases, from routine to the most complex, involving:
- EB-5 Foreign Investment:
including representation of regional centers, investors, project developers, broker dealer, and providing targeted due diligence services and development of best practices protocols
- Immigration Compliance:
including Form I-9, E-Verify, and SEVP/SEVIS foreign student related matters
- Visa Processing:
including naturalization, residency and security issues
Ms. Lurie has represented foreign individuals through the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program since the early 1990s. She has since expanded her practice to include EB-5 compliance work and regional center representation. Her experience has evolved over the last two decades as the EB-5 program progressed from an obscure means of obtaining U.S. residency, to a viable mechanism of funding a significant portion of the capital stack for large-scale projects and infrastructure building across industries. Ms. Lurie is particularly interested in EB-5 project and regional center compliance, which she believes has been overlooked with the surge of growth that the program has recently received. She also provides creative private equity funding strategies to developers in various industries that are interested in establishing EB-5 regional centers and projects.
Ms. Lurie’s Form I-9 and E-Verify experience is nationally recognized. By developing and managing corporate immigration compliance programs, including training and internal audit components, she minimizes exposure and liability, saving her clients millions of dollars. Ms. Lurie assists federal government contractors in meeting the FAR mandatory E-Verify compliance rules and flow-down clause. In addition, she regularly advises on immigration compliance issues in mergers, acquisitions, and contracting relationships. She represents companies in Immigration and Customs Enforcement matters and defends those facing government investigations including ones initiated by the DOL or DOS. Her experience also includes representing colleges, universities and foreign students with SEVIS/SEVP related issues as well as with routine compliance planning.
Ms. Lurie is consistently able to negotiate favorable settlements and resolve even the most adversarial of matters because of her solution oriented approach and her ability to work cohesively with government agencies.
