Immigration  •  

Daniel B. Lundy is a Member in the CSG Law Immigration Group.

Dan represents companies and individuals in complex immigration matters and helps them find creative solutions to immigration problems. Although his practice includes routine visa applications, Dan’s focus has been on difficult or non-typical cases that require both an understanding of clients’ businesses and needs and deep knowledge of the law and practice of immigration.

Dan practices extensively in the EB-5 area, where he represents numerous EB-5 regional centers, projects, developers, and EB-5 investors.

On the investor side, his practice includes helping investors complete the immigration process, including responding to complex requests for evidence and notices of intent to deny, and preparing motions to reopen and appeals of denied cases, and litigating delays and denials in federal court.

On the regional center and project side, Dan is regularly involved in representing real estate developers, regional centers, and lenders in structuring EB-5 transactions to be compliant with the EB-5 requirements, analyzing and trouble-shooting EB-5 transactions and projects, filing regional center and project applications with USCIS, and appealing or litigating denials and delays. In particular, he has a robust EB-5 compliance practice, where he helps regional centers and projects with their ongoing immigration compliance needs.

Dan has also represented investors, projects, and regional centers in regard to projects facing significant challenges where he has helped restructure deals to preserve the investors’ immigration process or helped projects get approved despite changes or problems.

He frequently litigates immigration matters in federal court, including EB-5 and non-EB-5 cases where the government has improperly delayed or denied a matter. Dan has filed many mandamus actions and APA actions against the various immigration agencies and successfully helped many clients achieve their goals through litigating against the government.

Dan also practices in all other areas of employment- or investment-based immigration, including E-1/E-2 treaty trader/treaty investor visas; L-1/EB-1C manager or executive non-immigrant and immigrant visas; O-1 and EB-1A extraordinary ability non-immigrant and immigrant visas; H-1B visas; PERM applications; and many other types of business-related visas.

Before joining CSG Law, Daniel was a partner at a Philadelphia-based law firm where he led the firm’s EB-5 regional center/developer team and its compliance team.

He earned his J.D. from Fordham University School of Law and his B.A. from Hunter College.
