I was attracted to the EB-5 field because it is a very small niche within the immigration field, and one that involves a substantial level of complexity and a corresponding opportunity for creative lawyering that really has the ability to help clients achieve their goals. The business side of EB-5 is constantly evolving, and, as a result, so is the practice of law in this field. As the Chinese market cools, the flow of new EB-5 projects is slowing somewhat.
