Government Relations & Lobbying

Sands Anderson’s Government Relations & Lobbying team is here to legally guide you across an array of services and business goals.

Conducting business in today’s environment means frequently navigating state and local regulations, policies, and new legislations. Each one can significantly impact the operations and costs you must meet in order to guide your business, non-profit, or profession to success.

Our goal is to help our clients come out ahead, so we believe in working efficiently and proactively to address their needs. Keeping up with ongoing legal momentum outside of your operations can become challenging. Roadblocks such as disruptive legislation and delayed permits and licensing can be major operational hindrances. At every step, we can provide the thorough support that helps you meet your business needs and navigate government relations.
