STOGNER LEGAL
 

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.  

PRACTICE AREAS

CONTRACTS

I draft, negotiate, and litigate legal contracts (those pesky documents that are supposed to match operational realities).

  • master service agreements

  • consulting agreements

  • construction agreements

  • master purchase orders

  • equipment rental agreements

  • invoicing terms and conditions 

  • purchase & sale agreements

  • insurance policies

  • other risk allocation docs

LITIGATION

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.

INCIDENT RESPONSE

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."

I am a lawyer, but not your lawyer until we both agree. Sending an email does not change that.
