General Business Law



The Business Law Practice Group of Sandberg Phoenix & von Gontard P.C. provides our clients with superior services for both business and personal needs. Sandberg Phoenix serves individuals, closely held companies, public companies, as well as governmental entities.

Unlike many other law firms, Sandberg Phoenix attorneys understand that legal advice without a business context provided an incomplete analysis. We work with our clients to integrate aspects of their business and competitive landscape with our legal analysis to drive business success and leave our partners with complete satisfaction.

Four principles guide the delivery of legal services:

  • Superior legal services. The attorneys are experts in their fields of practice and guarantee your satisfaction.

  • Prompt response to requests for assistance. A client’s business cannot afford to wait for the answers it needs.

  • Clear communications. Advice and documents are presented in plain English and understandable so clients do not have to interpret legal jargon. Clients are kept up to date on the status of all projects.

  • Efficiency and economy. Legal services can be 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 Sandberg Phoenix is to build long-term relationships with our clients by delivering superior services in a business-like and economical manner.
