Sands Anderson Opens in McLaws Circle

Sands Anderson Ribbon Cutting

James City County is pleased to announce that Sands Anderson PC has held a ribbon cutting and grand opening for their new office at 263 McLaws Circle, Suite 205. Sands Anderson is a midsize, Mid-Atlantic litigation and transaction law firm representing businesses, individuals, government entities, healthcare organizations and insurance companies. The Williamsburg office has four lawyers focusing on community associations, government, commercial real estate, labor and employment, healthcare, insurance, privately-held and small business and professional services.

“We have long discussed the potential for opening an office in the Hampton Roads region," said Margaret F. Hardy, the firm's president. "Our business is growing in the area and when Liz White joined our firm, the time to expand to Williamsburg was right. We are thrilled to be located in Williamsburg and excited to be an engaged member of the community.”

Elizabeth L. White, the firm's Williamsburg office managing attorney, said, "I'm a lifelong resident of Williamsburg, having grown up here, had all of my education here, raised my family here and practiced law here for more than 30 years. I'm so proud that Sands Anderson chose to expand in my hometown of Williamsburg." She added, "For me, joining the firm was an easy decision: the synergy of practices, the resources of a big firm with a small firm approach, the firm culture, and the numerous relationships throughout the community and the College of William and Mary. I'm delighted to be a member of Sands Anderson and to be located in McLaws Circle, a prime business location."

Sands Anderson’s roots began in Richmond, VA in 1842, when Alexander Hamilton Sands and John Howard founded the firm. Sands Anderson is believed to be Richmond’s longest continually operating business and their attorneys serve clients in Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia and Washington, D.C. The firm has expanded over the past 20 years to Christiansburg, Fredericksburg, McLean, Virginia, and Raleigh, North Carolina, and has 62 attorneys.
