Firm History

Our founder Navneet S. Chugh came to the US from his native India in 1981. He gained a love for the country and an insatiable drive to make a difference.

Chugh’s passion for strategic thinking and adding value to businesses led him to found our sister accounting firm in 1985 in Cerritos, CA. The firm started off small, with steady growth based on an early reputation as a top provider of medical practice accounting.

Chugh, LLP was established in 1992 to serve our clients’ complementary needs across immigration, litigation, mergers & acquisitions (M&A), employment, tax, bankruptcy law, and more.

Today, we employ over 200 staff members and serve corporate clients across a wide array of industries.

Chugh, LLP has incorporated over 6,600 companies, filed over 100,000 immigration petitions, and handled thousands of litigation matters across the US and India.

Our team of dedicated attorneys have an intricate understanding of the complexities of international commerce and we can comprehensively advise our clients on every aspect of their business.
