Business Immigration

Investor and Trader Visas

As a New York Immigration Attorney, I have experience representing clients in a variety of matters, from temporary Visas to applications for U.S. Citizenship.

However, I focus my practice on Business Immigration. I am one of the very few Immigration Lawyers in New York with firsthand experience with the immigration system, having been a business investor on E-2 Visa status and now a proud Dual Citizen of Italy and the United States.

Business Immigration

I have helped many foreign investors and Companies secure Visas for entrepreneurs, managers, and specialized employees.

I offer comprehensive legal services for all aspects of Business Immigration, from investing in an existing U.S. company, starting a new enterprise, creating an international trade business with a foreign country, and more. I offer personalized and complete solutions for foreign investors, from business plan review to visa approval, and any necessary steps required in between.

Personalized and complete solutions

My legal services include, but are not limited to:

  • Business plan review – A business plan is a guide for your business that outlines objectives and details how you can plan to achieve those goals. As an experienced Immigration Attorney, I can advise you on whether your proposed investment will create the conditions for you to obtain a Visa;
  • Business Formation – Business formation is often the first major step for investors, since your business structure can be used to secure financing or executives. I can assist you in forming a new entity in the State of New York or the State New Jersey;

If you are investing in an established company, I can represent you in the sale agreement, the necessary due diligence, and any escrow agreement you may require;
  • Tax Planning – Tax planning is undertaken to minimize tax liability through the best use of portfolios or circumstances that are as tax efficient as possible. If you are in need of tax planning advice, I can refer you to an experienced Tax Attorney;
