Business Group

Our Business practice group provides clients with exceptional services for both business and personal needs.

At Sandberg Phoenix, we serve individuals, closely held companies, public companies and governmental entities. We recognize that legal advice must be thoroughly explained and integrated within the context of your business or individual case. We believe that theoretical legal analysis without consideration of the business aspects of a particular project is only partial service to the client.

Our attorneys have extensive and superior experience in their fields of practice. We provide timely responses to requests for assistance because our clients’ business cannot afford to wait for answers. We believe in clear communications therefore all advice and documents are presented in plain English and understandable so clients do not have to interpret legal jargon. Our clients are kept up to date on the status of all projects.

We understand that legal services are expensive and our attorneys work with clients to identify project goals and strategies essential issues are identified, and then strategies are developed to meet those goals in the most efficient and economical manner. The ultimate goal of our firm is to build long-term relationships with our clients that extend beyond our working relationship.
