Ben's careful guidance in finance matters as CFO and the trust that our owners have in his stewardship resulted in his re-election and we are grateful that he remains willing to serve our firm in this capacity
Richmond, Virginia (PRWEB) March 20, 2009
Richmond, Virginia lawyer Benjamin W. Emerson, an attorney in the local government practice group at the law firm of Sands Anderson Marks & Miller, P.C., was re-elected in January to a fourth three-year term on the law firm's three person Board of Directors by vote of the firm's owners, firm president M. Pierce Rucker reported today.
"Ben's careful guidance in finance matters as CFO and the trust that our owners have in his stewardship resulted in his re-election and we are grateful that he remains willing to serve our firm in this capacity," said Rucker.
Emerson's practice focuses on providing legal advice to local governments, including the areas of municipal bond law, real estate law and economic development, zoning law and land use planning. He serves as County Attorney for Caroline and Essex Counties. He earned his undergraduate and Juris Doctor degrees from the University of Richmond, and also holds a M. F. A. from Virginia Commonwealth University.
Sands Anderson has been growing deliberately over the past twelve years, Rucker noted, and the firm's financial controls and conservative investment philosophy are key to the successful execution of its strategic plans, which Rucker credited to Emerson and other Board members.
"The Board is looking forward to another year of profitable growth and expansion consistent with our performance over the last several years," Rucker explained.
Emerson is listed in Best Lawyers in America and has appeared in the Virginia Business magazine Legal Elite lists for his real estate practice.
