Cross-Border Transactions

Given the global nature of business, we have developed a broad range of expertise that crosses borders, trade barriers, cultures, and currencies. From initial negotiations to closing – and at every stage in between – Davis Graham & Stubbs LLP attorneys have the abilities to guide clients toward their international objectives. We provide clear, thoughtful counsel to help clients handle foreign investment restrictions, repatriation of capital and profit, availability of hard currency, tax issues, risk insurance, and other hurdles involved in international transactions. In addition, we are the exclusive Colorado member firm of Lex Mundi, which gives us access to the largest network of independent law firms in more than 100 jurisdictions.

Our multidisciplinary team of attorneys shares a distinguished record of accomplishment throughout the Americas, Europe, Russia, Pacific Rim, Middle East, and around the globe. We help our U.S. clients succeed in emerging and established international markets. We also advise foreign companies, individuals, and governments on their inbound U.S. activities, as well as their transactions in other nations.

Our clients include international and national telecommunications firms, coal and hard rock mining companies, oil and gas companies, power projects, manufacturing companies, multinational trading companies, financial institutions, foreign governments, trade associations, and individuals.

Transactions, Finance & Securities

DGS has managed complex cross-border securities offerings, assisted U.S. companies in establishing licensing and distribution networks overseas, dealt with intellectual property issues, and launched a wide range of multinational joint ventures and project financings.

We also help foreign companies comply with the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, as well as ease their access to U.S. capital markets. Our experience proves invaluable to foreign companies that need to understand the playing field before investing in U.S. natural resources and other industries.

Public Companies

DGS counsels NYSE, Amex, NASDAQ, and other public companies on a wide variety of securities and corporate matters, and has represented companies in a large number of U.S. and cross-border transactions, including:

  • Initial and follow-on public offerings
  • 144A debt offerings
  • Private/Regulation offerings
  • Mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, and spin-offs
  • Tender offers
  • Complex joint venture and shareholder arrangements

We work closely with public companies to ensure compliance with their ongoing reporting obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and stock exchange rules, as well as complex corporate governance and board-related issues.

International Tax

We advise clients on the tax consequences of a variety of cross-border transactions, including acquisitions, dispositions, financings, joint ventures, and the structuring and restructuring of international groups. We have designed and implemented tax efficient structures for our U.S.-based multinational clients to operate globally and advised on holding company structures, foreign branches and subsidiaries, foreign tax credits, tax treaties, and repatriation strategies. We also advise foreign clients on the tax aspects of inbound investments in U.S. enterprises and assets, including investments in real property.
