Lauren A. Cohen, international speaker, #1 bestselling author and immigration and business strategist, is an attorney licensed in both the U.S. (TN) and Canada (ON). As an active AILA (American Immigration Lawyers Association) member, Lauren boasts a stellar track record of success. She was also recently recognized as one of 2017’s “Super Lawyers” by Attorney-at-Law Magazine.
Although her role at e-Council does not involve practicing law, Lauren has first-hand knowledge of the visa process, having herself immigrated from Canada, and later becoming an American citizen in 2012. The overriding goal in all of her business endeavors is to help her clients achieve their version of the American Dream. Developing sound strategies designed to sustain long-term growth is a cornerstone of the e-Council Inc. brand.
After spending several years working as corporate counsel in various industries while delving into the field of immigration law, Lauren decided to combine her legal knowledge and business acumen. The result is e-Council Inc., a company offering concierge turnkey business immigration services ranging from professional Business Plans to comprehensive project coordination for all types of business visas, with a special focus on EB-5 solutions for direct investment and regional center cases. Lauren and her team help businesses raise capital, assist franchises seeking additional franchisees particularly in the form of foreign investors, and work with foreign investors seeking access to the U.S. markets.
Lauren is an inspired international speaker, bringing passion and insight to the multitude of topics on which she speaks, ranging from complex business immigration matters to finding balance as a single mompreneur and related self-growth topics. Lauren is also very community-oriented and philanthropic, and recently established Find My Silver Lining, a non-profit whose goal is to inspire others to persevere through challenging times and focus on the bright side as they strive to lead fulfilling lives. Find My Silver Lining will also fund Zevi’s Silver Lining, a program established in her beloved father’s memory in affiliation with a local non-profit that is near and dear to Lauren’s heart, Jewish Family Services, which program will match children in need of grandparents with willing grandparents in the community, and Lauren’s goal is to eventually expand the reach of the program to other communities throughout North America.
After many years of running e-Council Inc., a successful international transactional legal advisory company, Lauren recognized a pervasive need for a single-source solution to the challenge of hiring quality, vetted professional advisors to ensure the business is sustainable, scalable, and ultimately saleable.
