Outdoor, Ski & Recreation

Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountain region, Davis Graham & Stubbs LLP represents gear manufacturers, ski areas, amusement and adventure parks, and many other clients in the outdoor, ski and recreational industries. Our experience ranges the entire gamut of issues facing these clients– including intellectual property protection, risk management, litigation, supply chain issues, and antitrust law. Most importantly, we understand the culture of these industries and the need for clear, practical advice and cost-effective legal results, and we provide a one-stop shop for all legal needs on a scalable model.


With dedicated teams in intellectual property protection, employment matters, financing, and mergers and acquisitions, we handle corporate and transactional matters for small startups to large public companies. Patent, trademark and copyright protection, debt and equity financing, anti-trust and supply chain issues are managed through our team and through our international network of 160 law firms in more than 100 countries worldwide.

Risk Management

Reducing the likelihood and exposure to claims and lawsuits is a key issue in the outdoor, ski and recreational industries. We routinely advise on the various aspects of risk management involving the industry – including warnings, signage, release agreements, regulatory compliance, indemnification, insurance, and supply chain issues from source to store. Our pre-claim advisement program can provide key staff with measures to deter preventable claims.


Our litigation team has defended numerous outdoor and recreational industry cases, and has broad expertise defending both manufacturers (from bicycles to snowmobiles) and operators (from ski resorts to amusement parks) in lawsuits throughout Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West. Whether the case involves ski lifts, mountain coasters, zip-lines, ski boots, or horseback riding – we know how to address and defend these actions.
