Biography

Osvaldo F. Torres, Esq. is a 1987 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Law School where he served as Editor-in-Chief of the Penn Law Forum. For the entirety of his professional career, Mr. Torres has focused on assisting clients negotiate and effect complex corporate transactions, including securities offerings (both public and private), mergers and acquisitions and other sophisticated deals.

In the international arena, Mr. Torres has worked on hundreds of agreements involving clients or projects in countries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, including in Mexico, Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Argentina, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Trinidad & Tobago and Aruba. Such agreements have included joint venture agreements, production agreements, affiliation agreements, licensing agreements, cable operator agreements, transmission agreements and manufacturing agreements.

For the past six years, Mr. Torres has been immersed in EB-5, where his rich experience in complex legal matters has allowed him to successfully represent regional centers and projects with their corporate structuring and securities offerings matters. Mr. Torres has worked on numerous EB-5 offerings, including those involving hotel development, multi-family residential construction, senior independent living complexes, healthcare and medical device companies, restaurants and franchises.

Mr. Torres frequently speaks at EB-5 conferences on securities issues and other aspects of the EB-5 practice and is a member of the EB-5 SEC Roundtable. He also serves on IIUSA’s President’s Advisory Council and its Compliance, Public Policy and Editorial Committees, the Steering Committee for the EB-5 Investment Coalition, is rated AV® Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell and ranked a Top 15 EB-5 Securities Attorney by EB-5 Investors Magazine. In addition, Torres Law has been selected as a Medallion Partner by NES Financial.

Prior to founding Torres Law, Mr. Torres worked as a corporate and securities attorney at several large and prestigious firms, including Schulte Roth & Zabel in New York City and Greenberg Traurig in Miami. He has also served as Senior Vice President and General Counsel for Telemundo Group, the Spanish-language television network, and for HBO Latin America Group, the premiere cable programmer in Latin America.

Mr. Torres considers himself, above all, a deal lawyer and his principal goal is to see deals successfully close, especially in the seemingly ever-evolving EB-5 space. For that reason, one of the most rewarding aspects of being an EB-5 securities attorney is helping clients navigate the often confusing and complex EB-5 regulatory maze.

To date, Mr. Torres has counseled on EB-5 and other offerings for projects valued in excess of $5 billion.

In addition to his practice, Mr. Torres has the honor of serving his community as the Secretary of the Weston Bar Association and a member of the American Bar Association Corporate Governance Committee.
