[ SPECIALTY ATTORNEYS ] Laura Foote Reiff has been involved in EB-5 since the program’s inception in 1990. With roots as a business immigration attorney assisting with EB-5 direct investments, Laura has grown to become co-chair of Greenberg Traurig, LLP’s business immigration and compliance group, a co-managing shareholder for the firm, and the leader of The EB-5 Coalition – a diverse organization of trade associations and businesses working to advance the EB-5 program. A multi-disciplinary international law firm, Greenberg Traurig is comprised of more than 1800 attorneys practicing in 36 offices worldwide. Laura collaborates with Greenberg Traurig’s dedicated EB-5 team, which includes professionals such as economists and securities attorneys, to assist both investors and developers across the full spectrum of EB-5 matters. As a founding member of The EB-5 Immigration Coalition, Laura is actively committed to reforming one of the most challenging aspects of EB-5: the program’s policy complexities. She finds that the bureaucracy of interfacing with various agencies is frustrating and works against the EB-5 program’s underlying goal of creating U.S. jobs. Despite the intricacies of navigating EB-5 policy, Laura finds that working towards transparency in business immigration laws and regulations is one of the most rewarding components of her job. She has been involved with federal legislation for more than 15 years, and her endeavors as a registered lobbyist for The Laura Foote Reiff [ LEGISLATION ] EB-5 Immigration Coalition allow her to have a direct effect in promoting and supporting the continuation of the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program. The ability to see whole families obtain their green cards is another reason that motivates Laura, and she also enjoys seeing projects flourish from start to finish. With more than 25 years of experience, she has gained a close understanding of how the EB-5 program has changed. From only allowing direct investments, to its revamp with the introduction of the Regional Center Pilot Program, to a current industry populated by betterquality projects sponsored by reputable names, Laura feels that EB-5 has developed in an overall positive direction. 中文版 第一期 Introducing EB5 Investors Magazine in Chinese 冬季刊 14 – 20 .com rs Investo cn.EB5 Maga 资者杂 eb5投 志 美国梦 实现资者的真情分享 成功投 特辑 查单元 尽职调 期 的影响 签证排 EB-5大陆投资人子女 对中国 om Skype: Visit www.cn.eb5investors.com/magazine to read the issue.
