About Wendy Metcalf Anderson

Wendy Profile bioThe one thing Wendy Anderson loves about the practice of law is the partnerships she gets to create with her clients. Working day in and day out with smart businesspeople – when they are facing a growth opportunity for their business, a challenge related to a business or personal relationship, or a question that unexpectedly arises pertaining to a client or employee – is motivating and rewarding.

In her role as legal counsel, Wendy facilitates both the normal and extraordinary operations of business from a pragmatic point of view. She approaches legal challenges with an eye toward finding the best resolution possible while allowing her clients to move past any disputes with minimal disruption to their lives.

From her more than 20 years’ experience as a marketing and advertising executive at both public and private corporations in Arizona, Wendy brings a broad understanding and knowledge of business to her law practice. As an attorney, she displays a keen ability to spot her clients’ potential liabilities in any business transaction and an uncommon attention to detail when drafting and reviewing critical documentation. Clients have an added advantage because the firm provides two different perspectives – legal and business – to every issue.
