Josh Rolf Leads Investment Visa Discussion in Buenos Aires

Joshua H. Rolf

Joshua Rolf and Rodrigo Solá Torino 

On July 12, 2019, Green and Spiegel Associate Joshua Rolf appeared at Marval, O’Farrell & Mairal in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Following-up on U.S. Practice Director Jonathan Grode’s appearance at the ABA’s Midyear Meeting in May, Josh returned to Buenos Aires to join Marval Partner Rodrigo Solá Torino in presenting strategies for expanding business operations in the United States through employee transfer and investment, and approaches to doing the same in Argentina. The talk also covered trends in both countries’ regimes that may affect future relations and business opportunities, including but not limited to recently proposed regulations that would alter the EB-5 Program and legislation that would eliminate per-country limits for employment-based green cards. 

“Having previously lived in Buenos Aires, it was a true pleasure to be back in this wonderful city and to have presented alongside such a distinguished attorney as Rodrigo, and at an institution the likes of Marval,” said Josh, one of Green and Spiegel’s several Spanish-speaking attorneys who delivered the presentation and fielded questions in his best porteño accent. “It was also so interesting to speak with Rodrigo and his visa team over the course of my visit about the similarities and differences between our immigration systems. I hope that this was the first of many such encounters, and that we continue to build stronger relationships with our Argentine colleagues and their country’s enterprising business community.”
