Sarah successfully leverages her foundation as a trial attorney with proven and effective technology-driven solutions and practical problem-solving skills to navigate her clients through complex (often parallel) federal and state litigation (including the North Carolina Business Court), government investigations, and regulatory challenges.

She advises corporations, individuals, and public entities in resolving complex business disputes, defending class actions, and responding to federal regulatory and state attorney general investigations. Sarah provides practical, data-driven advice to clients in order to manage risks and resolve disputes.  When clients are under attack on multiple fronts, she is experienced at coordinating complex, multi-jurisdictional legal defense efforts.  She has a keen ability to drive strategy and manage the execution of complex fact and expert case building, successfully leading internal teams and collaborating with the client’s other trusted advisors.

Sarah also maintains an education practice assisting public charter schools and colleges and universities in employment, student, and policy matters, and counseling clients on IDEA, Title IX, and Section 504 compliance. She has represented clients before the North Carolina Office of Administrative Hearings and the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights.  She advises public bodies on policy, procedural, governance and judicial functions, including open meetings and public records matters.

Within the firm, Sarah chairs the firm’s Innovation Board, chairs the Associate Partner Panel Review Committee, and is the partner liaison for the Transatlantic Lawyer’s Network, a leadership and professional development program for the firm’s U.S. and U.K. associates.
