Troglia Kaplan is pleased to announce the addition of our Immigration Practice.  

We have taken this initiative because we strive to serve as a business’ general counsel offering comprehensive guidance and expertise to our clients. U.S companies are now competing with foreign companies around the world more than ever. In a global economy, it is crucial that key personnel be able to cross borders expeditiously, with certainty and frequency. In today’s fluctuating legal landscape, we understand the pressures on employers, as well as on foreign employees, and the need for a business partner who can see past the ever-changing and complex immigration rules and regulations and implement creative solutions toward your success. Our immigration practice includes a wide variety of areas including:

  • Business Immigration

  • Investment Immigration

  • Highly Skilled Professionals Immigration

  • Personal & Family Immigration

  • Naturalization & Citizenship

The addition of immigration practice is a natural expansion of our current services. Our partner, Josh Kaplan, has been practicing in the field of corporate law, entertainment law and music management for over 15 years. He has helped many creatives, musicians, and artists to showcase their talent in the United States. Our partner, Brian Troglia, has over 20 years of expertise in the restaurant and hospitality industries. Immigrants play a key role in the industries’ growth and diversity, and they are often the employer of choice for immigrants who come to the U.S. in search of new opportunities. Additionally, both Josh and Brian have extensive legal experience in general corporate law, private investments, corporate/capital structuring, and assisted in finding creative ways for fundraising including the EB-5 Investor Visa Program. Last but not least, our firm was built on entrepreneurship. Our members have owned a variety of companies, including bars, restaurants, management companies and tech startups. We have a unique understanding of launching a business in the U.S. We trust that our clients will benefit from the services offered by this addition.
