Charles Raether is Managing Partner and founder of AmLaw Group, a legal services firm based outside of Washington, D.C. dedicated to assisting foreign businesses and entrepreneurs with their business and immigration matters in the U.S. AmLaw advises on both inbound and outbound commercial transactions and litigation with a particular focus assisting companies from emerging markets such as China and Russia to successfully enter and expand in the U.S. market. AmLaw also actively supports its clients with immigration matters, from removal proceedings to business immigration and investor green cards (EB-5 visas).
AmLaw\'s client base consists primarily of small and mid-sized companies that are seeking to expand or optimize their business activities in the United States, helping them to overcome the legal and commercial challenges. AmLaw\'s EB-5 practice is one of its most dynamic practice areas following the rapidly increasing interest in this sector among both foreign investors and American developers and companies seeking to tap alternative sources of capital.
