About Davis Graham & Stubbs LLP
The Davis Graham & Stubbs aviation law group is a unique alternative to large leasing and finance law firms. They’re a small group of veterans who have been practicing aviation law for decades. One of them also serves as General Counsel to a company that manufactures and repairs aircraft components as a top tier supplier to airframe and engine makers, and to operators of large fleets. This role gives them a keen insight on how to satisfy client objectives efficiently. They also have a specialized knowledge about helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft leased and financed throughout the world. The firm’s aviation clients have a presence in six continents, so the group has working relationships with local experts to support leasing and financing in many countries. Whether it's about the rules of the FAA, treaties like the Cape Town Convention, industry practices, or about the clauses that should be in your deal documents, DGS lawyers can recommend what's worth worrying about from the legal end, and what's not worth the bother.
The previous year has been the turning point for numerous industries in the U.S., more importantly, for the aviation finance industry. Apart from the significant and unexpected developments, remarkable international tax reform has also marked the year 2017. The main factor for the changes and alteration to international taxation, that greatly impacted aviation finance and leasing, is the OECD's Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Action Plan and its heightened focus on double tax treaties. A more complex tax environment for the aviation industry is expected in 2018 and beyond.
