Who We Are
For a century, Davis Graham & Stubbs LLP has ranked among the region’s most prominent law firms, consistently offering quality legal services to emerging and established businesses of the Rocky Mountain West. While the firm’s Denver headquarters and intermediate size allow a close personal relationship with local and regional clients, our technology and broad experience allow us to partner effectively with businesses and their investors throughout the world.
DGS serves clients nationally and internationally, with a strong focus on corporate finance and governance, mergers and acquisitions, natural resources, environmental law, real estate, and complex litigation. Our lawyers have extensive experience working with companies in the energy, mining, technology, hospitality, private equity, manufacturing, asset management, aviation, and health care industries.
The firm’s longstanding commitment to senior level staffing on client matters is drawing more attention from businesses seeking to leverage tight legal budgets. Unlike many firms that promise partner-level service but deliver junior-level associates, nearly half of our lawyers are equity partners whose experience, when combined with judicious use of associates and paralegals and a competitive rate structure, deliver a lower total cost solution for clients without any compromise in quality.
The Year of 100 Good Deeds
Davis Graham & Stubbs LLP celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2015 with the “Year of 100 Good Deeds” (Y100). In selecting 100 Good Deeds, DGS attorneys and staff first nominated potential projects in which they were involved. Then, the DGS Y100 Committee narrowed the nominations to 100 unique causes that the firm supported throughout the year with financial contributions, volunteer projects, and pro bono legal services. These 100 Good Deeds are above and beyond the firm’s usual contributions to the community.

Through the Colorado Supreme Court’s pro bono program, DGS has committed to provide at least 50 hours of pro bono and related legal community service per attorney each year. For example, in 2014, DGS lawyers accumulated more than 12,000 hours of this type of work, an average of more than 90 hours per attorney. Many of these attorneys represent clients who cannot afford legal services, and would otherwise not be able to access the judicial system.
