Investment Immigration Firm LatourLaw Opens Vietnam Office

Florida law firm LatourLaw, P.A., owned by attorney and former U.S. consular officer José E. Latour, has opened offices in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, to service the investment and immigration needs of both Vietnamese and U.S. clients. LatourLaw is a Miami-based law firm practicing in the areas of investment-based immigration and international business law for over 25 years, focusing on East Asia and Latin America. Established in 1991, the firm previously had foreign offices in Hong Kong and Manila, Philippines but today focuses on Vietnam providing counsel on investment-based immigration, bilateral investment and U.S./Vietnam joint ventures.

Mr. Latour has concentrated on the Vietnam market since 2011 through his other business, American Venture Solutions (“AVS”), a USCIS-approved EB-5 Regional Center based in Florida. In 2016, he established AVS Vietnam, making it the first approved EB-5 Regional Center with full time offices and staff in Vietnam. As more and more EB-5 investor clients from Vietnam successfully migrated to the U.S. through AVS, the firm has experienced increasing demand for a locally-based U.S. immigration solution, prompting AVS Vietnam Director Monica Pham and Latour to establish the new outpost. For client convenience, LatourLaw Vietnam is based in the Saigon Center office building, directly across the street from the U.S. Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

“Over our seven years in the Vietnam market, we have worked very hard to protect the interests of our Vietnamese investors and clients, earning both their trust and a respected community reputation. In fact, about half of our new clients are generated by referrals from existing clients, so setting up a full time presence in Saigon to better serve their needs, as well of those of our U.S. clients looking to invest in Vietnam, made perfect sense”, says Latour.

LatourLaw has been recognized among the "Top Rated Lawyers: International Law & International Trade" by American Lawyer Media, awarded the Inc. Magazine /Cisco Systems “Growing With Technology” Award and named multiple times among Florida Trend Magazine’s “Florida’s Legal Elite”. The firm was also named “2011 Private Equity Law Firm of the Year- USA” by Europe’s Finance Monthly magazine. Mr. Latour has received the AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the highest ranking available, continuously for over twenty years.
