Lehach Filippa Announces Rapid Company Growth

To Meet Client Demand, expansion of legal team, launch of official website, and office relocation planned for Spring 2016

NEW YORK, NY, March 16, 2016 -- Lehach Filippa, the leading immigration law firm for creative professionals, today announced plans of the firm’s expansion which includes the launch of the official website www.lehachfilippa.com, new hires, internal promotions, and an office move to a larger space in downtown Manhattan. Lehach Filippa founded in 2011 by partners Michael Lehach and Alejandro Filippa is the only law firm in New York to focus solely on immigration law for individuals and companies in the creative fields.

Lehach Filippa has quickly become one of the most sought after firms for their deep expertise in all matters of immigration law, specifically the artist visa process (O-1 visas) and the Greencard applications associated with them. The firm has structured their legal team to offer expertise in these specific areas and as a result streamline the process for clients, making a complicated process much easier to navigate.

Michael Lehach, founding partner, says: “This expansion is an exciting time for our team.  Updating marketing efforts to provide resources on our website and moving into a larger space in Spring 2016 will allow us to accommodate an increasing number of clients and provide even better service. We love what we do and now we can offer our expertise and attention to an even wider audience.”       
When talking about the company, Alejandro Filippa, founding partner, says: “Lehach Filippa is not your average law firm - that’s due to our amazing team and our unique approach to the immigration process.  We have success with our clients because we realize that there is no one-size-fits all path and it always starts with getting to know each client as an individual and surfacing the relevant information to empower them. We are so pleased to announce the growth of our firm and new plans for 2016.”

In the past six months, the Lehach Filippa team has more than doubled and is set to relocate from their headquarters at 325 Broadway to a larger space located at 80 Pine Street in lower Manhattan in Spring 2016. More information and resources on the types of visas, permanent residence applications, and details about the immigration process can be found on the new official website and blog.
