Knowing your business is the key to our success
Our Attorneys communicate directly with executives and senior-level managers to understand your company’s expansion goals. We typically have several in-depth consultations and meetings in order to outline the next steps.
For any business, there are a multitude of critical considerations when planning an international expansion. At D&A, we provide a full- service for our clients seeking to expand operations into the United States. From complex corporate structuring and global tax planning to handling all business visa matters, our turn-key solutions permit the client to continue to focus on the most important aspects of their business.
Most of our Agriculture and Commodities clients leverage their successful and cost-effective overseas operations in order to take full- advantage of a steady United States market demand and branch existing operations strategically into U.S. soil.
We have successfully supported these expansion initiatives by establishing a strategic business presence in the United States for our clients:
Sales & Marketing Office. Many of our overseas clients seek to grow aspects of their overseas production and commodities businesses by establishing a dedicated U.S. sales & marketing office space. Such efforts typically involve procuring a strategic lease- space, hiring 2+ employees, and transferring key personnel from the overseas entity.
Distribution Operations. A strong consumer marketplace in the United States for finished goods has led many of our clients to pursue expansion efforts into the United States distribution business. Leveraging overseas costs for goods and labor, our clients vertically integrate operations by forming corporate relationships between a newly formed U.S. and their Foreign Entity. These efforts typically require negotiating a leasehold, formalizing buyer/seller and distribution agreements, training U.S. based employees, and careful global tax planning.
Logistics & Warehousing. Some clients choose to establish U.S. businesses for logistics and distribution, as doing so can be a strategic way to build and grow international trading. In addition to helping clients address administrative matters related to employment law, licensing and insurance, Davies & Associates also helps with corporate accounting solutions.
On-Site Visit. No matter where you are in the world, a D&A representative will visit your operations upon request. We are 100% committed to learning about your business operations, and we believe that the most effective way to truly understand our client’s business needs is to experience it for ourselves.
Dedicated Team of Professionals. We offer a powerful mix of legal professionals, corporate attorneys, global tax lawyers, visa specialists and client support services. At any given time, you may have four or five qualified experts addressing the particular needs of your case.
Turn-Key Solutions. For our clients who are expanding existing operations into a new marketplace, or investing in a new business enterprise, we know the value of having everything managed in one place. Our team of legal and business professionals is designed to provide full-service, turn- key solutions for all our clients.
Global Presence. Local Service. Being international mean having a local understanding of our clients’ needs. With offices strategically located throughout the world, D&A is able to provide global solutions on a truly local level. We understand that being successful in the international space means being willing and able to operate across time zones and communicate in multiple languages. Taking this approach has helped us cultivate trusted working relationships with other legal professionals and business partners across the globe.
Registered Agent Services.
When you establish a business in the United States, you must appoint a registered agent. This applies to both Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) and corporations. Your registered agent is the first point of contact in the event someone intends to take legal action against your business.
When you choose Davies & Associates as your registered agent with a registered address in the U.S. state of your choice, you can have peace of mind knowing that if someone intends to file a lawsuit against your company, it will be addressed promptly and appropriately. With our team receiving and forwarding mail on your behalf, we are able to deal with legal matters as soon as they arise. This is especially useful for foreign-owned businesses where the owner lives overseas, or where the owner lives in the United States and needs to remain compliant with their visa requirements
Incorporating a business entity correctly is crucial for any U.S.-based business, but it is especially important for businesses tied to a business owner’s visa. Your Davies & Associates business law attorney can help you avoid many potential pitfalls related to share issuance, voting rights and board member/officer appointments.
We can also prepare the required state filings, draft operating and shareholder agreements, and ensure corporate books, records, and other required documentation is complete and in place. Ultimately, this should help ensure your company remains in compliance with statutory requirements and reduce the risk of potential immigration issues related to the business.
5 stars and a high five! Thank you Verdie and Etta for assisting us with our change of status application. They were very professional and accommodating with all our questions and concerns throughout the process. Despite the time constraint, we pulled it off and we could not have done this without you guys! Keep up the good work!
Getting my E2 Visa was a very in-depth process that took just over a year from when I committed to it, but 8 months from when I found a business I wanted to purchase. The only reason I'm giving 4 and not 5 stars is because the timeframe was a lot longer than expected from the initial information. Aside from the timing, Verdie and his team led me through the Visa process, providing all the guidance I needed to be successful, including advising me on the RIGHT type of Visa to suit my goals. Within the process I purchased a business and the greater Davies team included lawyer Rinat who helped me put the deal together. One of the biggest parts was my Business Plan which created from my info by Ana Ortiz, who did an incredible job. The process is certainly tedious and Verdie & Christina were always there to answer my questions, provide suggestions and advice and ensure I had all the documents I needed to support my application. I appreciated their patience with my questions and their advice and in the end, the application was so thorough the interview process was quick and easy. I highly recommend Davies & Associates and look forward to working with them again when it's time to renew my Visa.
I had talked with Alex Jovy, he was very quick to respond, had a lot of useful information which I was not aware of. Took time out of his day to discuss my situation and was very helpful. They go into a lot of detail which other companies do not. Overall a great service!
I received an world-class help in how to immigrate to the USA succesfully! Alex was very open to answer my questions and is definitely a professional in what he does! Strongly recommend this firm.
We were in a hurry and Verdie and the team were highly responsive and supportive, even when we threw in some curve balls along the way. We had our visas approved without any issues and felt confident and well prepared for document submissions and the interview. I'd certainly recommend this team for an E2 visa process.

The entire process of getting an EB5 visa is handled in a professional way by Mark Davies and his team. EB5 is a wonderful option for anyone considering moving to the United States if you have the means. I was hoping to use the H1B route for my children, but it became unreliable and so I looked to the EB5 Visa instead. It is great for anyone who has the resources. Mark gives you the first meetings himself which gives you great comfort. Both Mark and Sanjay are abundantly available and I even had the pleasure of hosting them at my house.Parent of 2 EB5 Visa Holders
I'm in a process of extending my L1 visa. I submitted a few questions regarding my case and he contacted me back almost immediately both by e-mail and telephone. Unlike other attorneys I met before, he gave me the impression of knowing from the top of his head what kind of visa I have, and what actions had to be taken to extend it. He is very thorough and clear regarding the process and what to expect in terms of timelines and issues that may arise. He is constantly in contact, so you definitely know he's working on your case.L1B Visa Holder
Mark Davies is a joy to work with. His extensive knowledge, speedy response and attentive service took away all my fears of dealing with immigration and visa applications.

Davies & Associates assisted us with an immigration emergency involving my brother's fiancée who was outside the United States. They assisted us in an highly professional manner, working with the relevant US embassy, US immigration and the governments of two other countries. As a result of their efforts the individual involved is now working in the United States. While their knowledge of the law is exemplary what really distinguishes this firm and attorney Davies from any other firm we have worked with is their dedication to customer service and their unrivaled level of professionalism.Complex Fiancée Visa Need Involving Multiple International Jurisdictions
