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. In 1985, Navneet S. Chugh founded our sister accounting firm in Cerritos, CA.

Our sister accounting firm started off small, but experienced steady growth in the early 1990s. The firm was establishing itself as a top provider of accounting services in southern California.

By the late 1990s, American firms were preparing for the widely anticipated”Y2K” computing crash in 2000. There were not enough US graduates to meet a growing demand for specialized workers. Our founder recognized the need for effective immigration providers in the technology space, so he founded Chugh, LLP’s immigration practice group in 1997.

Chugh, LLP added additional corporate legal services in 1997 to serve our clients’ complementary needs across practice areas like litigation, mergers & acquisitions (M&A), employment, tax, and bankruptcy law.

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.
