He also serves as Chair of the newly-formed Southern Utah Legal Services Section, a 10+ lawyer branch office in St. George, Utah. He focuses on international commercial law and international sales related projects through the EU and parts of Asia, and medical device manufacturing and worldwide distribution for Utah based companies. He is also passionately involved in matters that arise from and affect the economy and environs of southern and rural Utah, where he has resided for his entire career as a lawyer.

Mr. Anderson’s work addresses the coordination and harmonization of legal services and corporate governance for multinational corporate organizations to allow them to navigate efficiently through and comply with US and non- US law.

His work supports the ongoing operation of client enterprises, including overseeing multinational litigation and dispute resolution when needed.     

After spending the first decade of his career as a trial lawyer, Mr. Anderson repented and converted to a transactional practice which, in addition to dealing with emerging international matters, also focused on business in southern Utah, where he has assisted clients with commercial and recreational real estate development, including ski resorts, golf courses, medical service and technology companies, public lands and environmental matters. He has facilitated the move of tech companies and large retail centers to the area. Mr. Anderson was instrumental in bringing to Utah its second major medical school, Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine, and he currently chairs its Utah advisory board.
