About

We founded Lead EB-5 LLC to allow EB-5 investors to finance projects in areas of compelling US national interest.

Over 99% of EB-5 solicitations are for real estate investment. These projects offer no chance for expedited processing. Investors have to wait for years for approval of the first step of their application.

Unlike traditional real estate projects, our investment targets fall into a completely different category: projects that serve America’s national priorities. These investments give you the best chance to receive initial approval of your I-526 application in well under a year—sometimes as little as 4 months.

And we ensure that our investors will also enjoy good returns along with their expedited visas.

All immigration matters are handled by Christian Triantaphyllis, a partner and Chair of Investment Immigration Practice at Jackson Walker LLP. Christian has been recognized as one of the most influential EB-5 attorneys for three consecutive years by EB5 Investors Magazine. Has processed over 1000 EB-5 cases with an almost 100% success rate. With him, your application will be in good hands.

Other business structure and securities law matters are handled by Armando Castro, an emerging growth, venture capital and business law partner at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP, one of leading law firms in Silicon Valley.
