A year of unprecedented challenges and uncertainty as we had to adjust to the new reality of Covid-19. But it has also been a year of strength and innovation as many professionals reinvented their business strategies to keep the EB-5 industry moving forward. And despite the number of EB-5 applications taking a hit after the combination of higher investment amounts, wait times and the slowing of the economy from the pandemic, the first quarter EB5 approval numbers are showing an increase, which is a good start. In the spirit of the EB-5 community coming together to vote for their fellow peers, we proudly want to celebrate the power of the top EB-5 professionals and recognize the best in the industry. In this special awards edition, we are excited to announce the winners of the annual Top 25 awards in seven categories. In addition to the distinguished immigration attorneys, we honor corporate attorneys, top litigators, attorneys in specialized fields, economists, rising stars and business plan writers. We hope this distinguished list of winners will serve as a guide as well as a recognition of the powerful people who drive this industry forward.
