The firm has extensive experience working with companies in the energy, mining, technology, hospitality, private equity, manufacturing, engineering, asset management, and aviation industries.

Main Areas of Practice

Corporate Finance: 

DGS has the largest corporate finance and acquisitions practice in the region, with more than 60 lawyers with expertise in complex M&A transactions, securities law, tax, private equity, asset management, executive com­pensation, and intellectual property. The size and sophistication of the firm’s corporate finance practice give it deep familiarity with a wide variety of transaction strategies, financing alternatives, and regulatory issues. And because the firm works with financing sources, investment banks, venture capitalists, and private equity firms on a daily basis, it is able to stay current on new and evolving deal terms as the transaction marketplace changes.

Real Estate: 

DGS real estate attorneys help clients with the develop­ment, construction, acquisition, and disposition of office, industrial, health-care, resort, and retail facilities in addition to single-family, condominium, apartment, and assisted-living residential projects, including the negotiation and development of build-to-suit projects. The firm represents developers and property owners in a broad range of financing transactions, from acquisi­tion, construction, bridge, and permanent loans to sophisticated financing vehicles, such as synthetic lease transactions, sale-leasebacks, and development bonds.

Energy & Mining: 

DGS provides a seamless array of litigation, transaction, permitting, and counseling services in the oil, natural gas, coal, mining, and renewable and alternative energy industries. Combined with the tax, corporate, regulatory, environmental, and trial lawyers who are experienced in natural resources matters, including those involving federal lands, DGS offers one of the strongest energy and mining practices in the US.

Environmental: 

DGS is staffed with some of the best environmental attorneys in the country who are focused on promoting their clients’ businesses by minimizing their costs and ensuring compliance with evolving environmental requirements. The firm handles a spectrum of compliance, permitting, transactional, and enforcement matters pertaining to air and water quality, solid and hazardous wastes, indoor air/vapor intrusion, underground storage tanks, endangered species, cultural resources, radioactive materials, spills, remediation, cost recovery, and natural resources damages.

Litigation: 

DGS lawyers – including many former prosecutors and public defenders – have substantial records of trying lawsuits in front of juries and judges. Their extensive jury trial experience gives them an advantage in narrowing claims and negotiating favorable settlements. The firm’s capabilities encompass commercial litigation as well as white-collar crime and government investigations. DGS’s trial lawyers handle litigation planning, mediation, and other modes of alternative dispute resolution, all forms of pre-trial motion and discovery practice, and trials and appeals at all levels.
