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.
