LOS ANGELES—Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell LLP (JMBM) is pleased to announce that Catherine DeBono Holmes has been named to EB-5 Investors Magazine’s “Top 15 Corporate Attorneys” list for 2017.

Holmes is the Chair of JMBM’s Investment Capital Law Group and the author of the Investment Law Blog. She helps clients worldwide to raise, invest and manage capital from U.S. and non-U.S. investors.

Holmes has represented more than 100 real estate developers in obtaining financing through the EB-5 immigrant investor visa program for the development of hotels, multi-family, and mixed-use developments through the U.S., and has represented numerous Chinese investors in the purchase of hotels and businesses in the U.S.

“The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa Program has successfully provided funds to developers and businesses that create employment for Americans, as well as a pathway to legal immigration to the U.S. for foreign investors.  As the program continues to undergo scrutiny and change, EB5 Investors plays an important role by collecting and disseminating critical information to professionals in the EB5 community,” said Holmes.  “I am honored to be recognized by EB5 Investors as a top attorney.”

Holmes also has extensive experience in the hospitality industry, where she specializes in resort and urban mixed-use financing and development, hotel management and franchise agreements, resort and hotel purchase and sale transactions, and public-private hotel development.
