innovative legal counsel for modern business reality
After 12 years in the traditional law firm model, I know there are better ways to provide legal help for clients to successfully run their businesses.
I draft, negotiate, and litigate legal contracts (those pesky documents that are supposed to match operational realities).
master service agreements
master purchase orders
equipment rental agreements
invoicing terms and conditions
purchase & sale agreements
other risk allocation docs
The only people that win in litigation are the lawyers. One of my favorite parts of being a lawyer is helping clients understand, assess, mitigate, and allocate risk. I have recovered over $50 million in insurance proceeds for policyholders. Let me help you avoid litigation, and win cases when litigation cannot be avoided.
If you have an incident I can be in the air within an hour to assist your health, safety, and environmental personnel with those critical first hours. I am well control certified, NIMS ICS certified, and will help your incident commander notify insurers and other potentially responsible parties, communicate with regulators, and facilitate an organized response following an industrial accident.
THE LEGAL UNICORN
Alternative fee agreements:
save clients money over the long term
allow clients to budget the same amount for legal advice each month
encourage clients to obtain legal advice before issues arise - reducing the time employees are spent reacting to issues
Clients are encouraged to call, text, or email me as needed throughout the month to avoid significant legal issues down the road.
"I was fortunate enough to meet Sarah through a mutual friend in the industry. Sarah is without a doubt the most knowledge person I've met when it comes to oil and gas master service agreements, indemnity provisions, insurance coverage, etc. Sarah's passion for 'nerding out' (her words:) on these complicated topics may be second only to her strong sense of purpose in helping others understand these topics. Sarah has the unique ability to breakdown complex topics into simple terms that make sense. She knows the law, knows our industry, and is an honest 'truth-teller' that businesses need to know. Sarah is absolutely someone you want on your side of the table."
