Privately-held and Small Business Lawyers

Sands Anderson PC's small business attorneys and litigators, including corporate formation, business transaction, commercial litigation and employment teams among others, are specifically constituted to serve small to mid-sized privately held companies. Our strategic goal is to be the law firm of choice in the Mid-Atlantic region for clients with sophisticated litigation needs, for middle-market businesses and their owners.

The lawyers on our Small and Privately-held Business team represent businesses through every phase of corporate life.  We provide all types of corporate legal advice to family-owned businesses and private companies.  The firm also represents non-profit organizations and provides business advice to a number of Virginia localities and authorities.  Our clients are engaged in a variety of enterprises including manufacturing, retail sales, real estate development, building construction, merchant banking and securities, retail and commercial lending, health care, building and landscape design, technology and professional services.

Sands Anderson's North Carolina and Virginia small business lawyers assist businesses with all aspects of corporate governance and help clients form and structure partnerships, limited liability companies and corporations.  Our business transaction attorneys help companies obtain financing using a wide array of public and private debt and equity instruments.  We draft and negotiate contracts with customers, vendors and distributors, handle legislative, administrative and regulatory matters and assist with collections and creditors' rights issues.

Sands Anderson's lawyers assist clients in tax planning and apply their expertise to recommend the structure of business transactions to achieve favorable tax results. We also advise executive officers and owners on issues such as estate planning, severance and compensation issues and succession planning.

The firm's privately-held business attorneys frequently work with in-house counsel and also act as general counsel for small and mid-sized companies.  If disputes develop, our business litigators have a wealth of experience resolving contract, financing, collections and creditors' rights, employment, intellectual property, trademark, trade secrets, franchising and antitrust issues through diligent and intelligent negotiation and courtroom advocacy.

From our offices in Virginia and North Carolina, the small business lawyers of Sands Anderson serve clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic.
