As an experienced business advisor and litigator, Sarah works with business owners to implement policies and practices that keep their businesses running smoothly, helps them avoid expensive legal battles, and fights for them when litigation arises. Sarah focuses her practice on providing her clients with general business advice, drafting and analyzing employment documents ranging from employment agreements and severance agreements to employee handbooks, and litigating all aspects of general civil and commercial disputes.
With a diverse background of representing an array of business clients in private practice and working as in-house counsel, Sarah recognizes the importance of understanding all aspects of a client's business when providing advice, whether it is compliance, litigation, or business strategy related. When counseling clients, she takes the time to understand the ins and outs of her client's business and employs a holistic approach when addressing their legal needs and concerns.
"Business owners and entrepreneurs often wear many hats and are inundated with stresses of day-to-day operations and business worries, which often include legal concerns around compliance and litigation. I take these concerns off their plate and help them focus on the growth and success of the businesses."
