Greetings from the President

Immigration Lawyer Tatsuya Hirose

Born in Chiba Prefecture in 1981, Tatsuya went to England after graduating from university. During his stay in the UK, Tatsuya realized how difficult it was to apply for a visa and how difficult it was to live abroad. After returning to Japan, he worked at an immigration law firm specializing in visa procedures for foreign nationals, hoping to help those people who had as much trouble with visas as he did. During this time, Tatsuya obtained his immigration lawyer's license and provided a wide range of visa support services, including work visas for foreign-affiliated and listed companies, small and medium-sized enterprises, visa advisory services for national universities, and applications for permanent residence and naturalization. After working there for about 10 years, he established Ligareus in 2019 in order to change the visa business and help digitally transform it. He aims to create a borderless society where foreigners can live happily in Japan by reducing the number of people who have problems with visas.
