Distinctly Practical

The Business Transactions lawyers of Sands Anderson views legal services as a mission-critical component of a successful business strategy.  We bring real-world, practical solutions to multifaceted business problems.  Two of our attorneys have founded and grown companies from the ground up and hold MBAs from top-tier graduate business schools.  As principals in these companies, they have confronted business problems as clients, as well as counsel.  In all of our representations, this valuable experience is accessible for the benefit of Sands Anderson clients.  Our team understands the delicate balancing necessary to deliver critical legal services at an affordable cost.
