CEO & Attorney-at-law

Anne-Laure Cagniart

“I represent high-performing professionals who say they value my ability to provide what very few lawyers can offer: a deep well of knowledge and broad skill sets in both immigration law and corporate law. They know that’s a rare combination. I navigate them through two complex and stressful processes – obtaining a visa and setting up a business. As a business owner, I understand the challenges my international clients face, and I do all I can to help them achieve their hopes and dreams.”

Widely recognized for delivering high-level immigration and corporate legal services during her 10 years of practicing law, Anne-Laure “Laura” Cagniart helps pave the way for her clients to enter the United States, position their career and make a difference in the world.


Laura advises ambitious and hard-working entrepreneurs, executives, artists, musicians, athletes and other professionals on the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requirements and a range of issues that arise in securing all different types of visas and green cards, including the employment visas O, L, H1B and TN; the investor visas E1/E2; and the EB1, EB2, EB3, EB5 and NIW green cards. 

With experience starting and running a business in a foreign country, Laura has first-hand knowledge of both the pitfalls business owners encounter and the satisfaction they gain. She draws on her diverse background and dual knowledge base to counsel clients on their immigration documents as well as their business formation strategy, corporate contracts, vendor agreements and other business documents, often establishing close, long-term professional relationships. She enjoys collaborating with clients and helping them succeed, and they frequently refer Laura to others who need such guidance.

Clients also benefit from Laura’s experience working on international policy at the United Nations, which deepened her insight into how governments work and informs her service to clients in the immigration process. 

Laura closely tracks the many and often fast-moving changes in the ever-evolving regulatory framework on both the immigration and business fronts. Committed to quickly responding to her clients’ needs, she always alerts them about policy changes that affect them. And then she crafts and implements a strategy to help them reach the most favorable outcomes.

Since she launched Cagniart Law, Laura has provided immigration or corporate law counsel for clients in a wide range of industries. They include but are not limited to: technology companies, energy companies, health care companies, private investment firms, engineering firms, construction companies, recycling companies, consulting companies, real estate companies, universities, ESL schools, music schools, churches, non-profit organizations, tourist companies, catering companies, restaurant companies, and retail companies.


Laura graduated from the University of Pantheon-Assas, the top-ranked law school in France, often known as “the Harvard of France”. She earned a Master of Law degree from the top-tiered University of Texas at Austin School of Law.
