Publisher’s Note: Celebrating the Power of the EB-5 Community A s the EB-5 community joined forces to nominate and vote for the industry’s top attorneys and service providers, we are honored to recognize the achievements of the best in the industry through publishing our annual Top 25 Attorney tribute in this issue. This year, we expanded the honored professionals to include economists and business plan writers in addition to the industry’s distinguished immigration and corporate attorneys, attorneys in specialized fields and rising stars. We hope this list of the industry’s most influential professionals, voted by their fellow peers, will serve as a guide for people needing counsel or professional services, as well as a celebration of the key players in the EB-5 industry who inspire and lead through their experience, performance and character.
