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. In order to strengthen international trade opportunities, a number of our CMP clients establish operational entities in the United States focusing on logistics and distribution. These import and export operations require careful corporate and global tax planning, procuring necessary trade licenses, insurance protection and hiring key U.S. based-employees.
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.

Global Presence. Local Service. Being international mean having a local understanding of our clients needs.

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. Before anyone initiates a lawsuit against your business, they must notify your registered agent. Having a trusted law firm as your registered agent means you can stay one step ahead of the process and deal with any issues in a timely manner. Davies & Associates can provide you with a registered address in the state of your choosing. 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 requirementsIncorporation Services
It is important to build your US business from firm foundations by incorporating it correctly. This is especially true of businesses that are linked to the owner’s visa where non-compliance could cause immigration issues. Our corporate team can draft all the necessary corporate documentation and produce a corporate book for your business. This includes preparing an operating agreement for LLCs with more than one owner or a shareholder agreement for a corporation. We can also help with issuing shares, setting voting rights, and appointing board members and company officers. We also help draft and review employment agreements and negotiate commercial leases.
