Sandon Fisher joins Flagler Law Group; Craig Gipson promoted to Of Counsel

September 20, 2021 — Flagler Law Group is pleased to announce Sandon M. Fisher will join the firm’s Asheville, North Carolina office as Associate Attorney on October 15, 2021. Sandon’s service to the firm’s clients will focus on business transactions, primarily drafting contracts and negotiating acquisitions, as well as trademark prosecution and related intellectual property advice.  As the firm’s practice has grown, the volume and complexity of intellectual property and transactional needs of its clients has increased.

Veteran intellectual property attorney, Craig Gipson – who celebrated his ten-year anniversary with the firm this year – has been promoted to Of Counsel and will maintain the firm’s West Coast presence.  As Of Counsel, Craig will continue to counsel and manage projects for publishers and other rights organizations as well as expand his First Amendment, privacy, and dispute resolution practice.

Craig’s promotion and the addition of Sandon to the team of dedicated legal professionals at Flagler Law Group enables the firm to continue to provide efficient and cost-effective counsel to Christian publishers, ministries, churches, seminaries, and other content organizations.

Sandon comes to Flagler Law Group with just shy of six years of experience as a practicing attorney. Most recently he served as Legislative Counsel to the State of Alaska. Sandon honed his transactional skills as an Associate Attorney at the firm Manley & Brautigam in Anchorage. Sandon earned his Juris Doctorate at Liberty University School of Law, and was admitted to the Alaska Bar in 2015.

“Sandon’s recruitment and Craig’s promotion reinforce our commitment to continually improving best practices and maximizing efficiency, which we tailor to the needs of publishers and ministries.”
– Brian D. Flagler, Founder and Managing Partner

Sandon, his wife and daughter look forward to making the transition from the Boundary Ranges to the Blue Ridge.  An avid outdoorsman, Sandon is likely to join Brian and Craig on one of their paddling adventures.

Flagler Law Group serves organizations that publish, teach, and distribute Christian messages, providing informed and practical counsel on publishing and intellectual property matters.
