The law firm Sands, earlier Steenstrup Stordrange, offers a full range of legal services to businesses of different sizes, from start-ups to mature corporations. We are in particular focused and aware of the challenges met by early-stage businesses, and intend to offer personalized attention with an overall focus on securing and adding value to the companies that we serve.

As a full-service business law firm, our practice covers areas ranging from regulatory issues, IP, business formation and financing, mergers and acquisitions, taxation, to exit strategies and business succession planning. We offer cost-effective and creative legal solutions to business and commercial clients.

Pharmaceutical and healthcare companies will potentially face a range of challenges, including possible disputes over intellectual property, adherence to evolving regulatory rules and regulations and parallel import challenges, to name just a few. At the same time, the industry offers great opportunities and growth potential. We aim at being your preferred legal partner whenever the need for legal assistance may arise.
