She provides practical, strategic advice to clients in connection with mergers and acquisitions, contract negotiations, leases, corporate governance, software licenses, and other legal transactions.

Sarah regularly assists her clients in their day-to-day legal needs, responding quickly and efficiently to ensure that they receive the advice and support they need.
