Sanders & Parks is one of the premier civil litigation firms in Phoenix and across Arizona. At Sanders & Parks we dedicate each day to serving our clients' legal needs promptly, efficiently, and effectively. Whether in negotiation, litigation, mediation, or arbitration, our attorneys aim to provide the highest quality legal representation while recognizing the need for a practical, cost-effective approach to litigation. We strive to be large enough to meet the diverse needs of our clients, yet small enough to stay personally accessible and committed to doing whatever it takes to solve a legal problem, add perspective to a business strategy, or develop a solution to avoid litigation in the future.
Sanders & Parks offers diverse legal services to local, national, and international clients, which include some of the most prestigious insurance, business, banking, brokerage, financial, and corporate clients in the world. Our clients include a large number of publicly-owned domestic and international corporations, as well as closely-held domestic and international corporations, banks, financial institutions, partnerships, and individuals who we have represented as general, regional, and special counsel. Because of our size and experience, our firm frequently is retained by other law firms to act as lead, special, or local counsel in connection with major transactions or complex litigation. Although based in Arizona, we represent clients throughout the country in a wide variety of areas.
Sanders & Parks was formed in 1973 when James A. Teilborg, Frank A. Parks, and Richard B. Sanders pooled their considerable talents and experience to invent a new approach to legal representation: providing top-quality representation with bottom-line efficiency. Although our firm has grown considerably, we remain committed to the principles of integrity, effectiveness, and client service first announced by our founders in 1973. Those principles have served us well.
Over the years, we have earned a reputation as one of the top trial firms in Arizona. Founding partner, Frank A. Parks, was one of the first attorneys in Arizona to devote his practice to defending physicians and other healthcare providers. We have continued that tradition and now Sanders & Parks boasts one of the largest and most well-respected medical malpractice litigation groups in Arizona.
Sanders & Parks is proud that several of our attorneys have assumed positions as state and federal judges. James A. Teilborg, was appointed by President William Jefferson Clinton to serve as a federal district court judge for the District of Arizona. John Gemmill, now sits as a judge on the Arizona Court of Appeals. James M. Marlar, accepted a position as a judge in Federal Bankruptcy Court. We are proud of our attorneys who have taken the bench. We are also proud of the strong tradition that Sanders & Parks has established as a training ground for the future leaders of the legal community.
As we have learned through four decades of practice, complex litigation requires a real appreciation of legal and business principles, as well as a continuing commitment to changes and trends. The same is true for our transactional clients that have needs in lending, contract drafting and negotiation, acquisitions, and negotiations - to name a few.
In today's legal marketplace, business executives, corporate counsel, and risk managers are very sophisticated consumers of legal services. Their selection of counsel is based on an informed decision regarding the quality of representation as well as a firm's ability to provide time and attention to their needs. Those criteria have served us well. We have had tremendous success forging relationships with businesses, other attorneys, in-house counsel, and litigation managers of major corporations and insurance companies throughout the country. Many clients migrated to us because they grew weary of being lost in the shuffle. We understand that our clients value our knowledge and common sense. Our attorneys are graduates of distinguished law schools and have diverse backgrounds in science, industry, construction, business, financial services, accounting, government, and education.
We are dedicated to providing quality legal service in a friendly and professional atmosphere. We apply the right combination of innovation, creativity, and commitment to each case that we handle. We strive to resolve disputes fairly, efficiently, and economically. We keep clients involved in their cases, respond promptly to inquiries, and stay apprised of changes in the law. Our approach to client service blends the best of expertise, teamwork, experience and service. Sanders & Parks is a team of great attorneys with impeccable legal credentials, talent, and a knack for delivering results.
