Two Baker Donelson Attorneys Recognized in EB-5 Investors Magazine "Top Attorneys" Lists

Two Baker Donelson attorneys have been listed in EB-5 Investors Magazine's 2018 "Top 25 Attorneys" lists which recognize a select group of attorneys each year for their work in areas including corporate, litigation and immigration law.

Robert Divine, the leader of Baker Donelson's Immigration Group, is recognized among the "Top Attorneys in Specialized Fields" which is comprised of attorneys in specialized practices focused on EB-5 policy and lobbying matters, complex cases and immigration compliance. Mr. Divine has extensive experience serving clients throughout the world in the arrangement of all types of business-based temporary and permanent immigration status. He represents EB-5 developers, regional centers, and individual foreign investors, balancing immigration and securities considerations, and litigating when necessary. This is Mr. Divine's sixth consecutive year included in EB-5 Investors Magazine's "Top Attorneys" lists, previously recognized among the "Top 25 Immigration Attorneys" and "Top EB-5 Attorneys."

Jackie Prester, chair of the Firm's Financial Services Transactions Group, is recognized among EB-5 Investors Magazine's "Top 15 Corporate Attorneys." Ms. Prester serves as securities counsel for public companies and routinely advises companies raising capital through private placements of securities, as well as offerings registered with the SEC. She has particular experience with advising clients on securities issues relating to the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program, which includes helping clients draft private placement memorandums, negotiating agreements with broker-dealers and other securities professionals, and advising on securities compliance issues.

EB-5 Investors Magazine provides a platform for skilled EB-5 professionals to discuss pressing matters and keep readers up to date on the constantly changing law and legislation pertaining to EB-5. Honorees in the EB-5 "Top Attorney" lists are selected through an EB-5 industry-wide vote and input and analysis from the magazine's editorial board and in-house team. Candidates are evaluated based on their experience in the EB-5 industry as well as their track record and reputation within the field.
