Sarah is a foundational member of Mayer Brown’s full-service, multidisciplinary Environmental Tort practice that represents clients facing litigation related to what are generally single-source single-site spills, leaks, air emissions, explosions, or other chemical/toxic releases. These matters involve coordinating a combination of individual and class claims proceeding serially or simultaneously in multiple jurisdictions, as well as complex regulatory, appellate, e-discovery, expert, and damages issues. In addition to litigation, clients are often the targets of parallel government investigations and regulatory inquiries. Sarah has experience across these skill sets in a variety of industry sectors, including chemicals, agriculture and transportation.
Sarah is also an integral member of Mayer Brown’s International Arbitration practice. She represents multinational corporations before domestic and international arbitral bodies, including the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the International Center for Dispute Resolution (ICDR). Those disputes range from complex commercial supply agreements to pharmaceutical licensing agreements. Sarah’s arbitration experience also includes obtaining and defending against judicial review of arbitration awards, drafting and reviewing arbitration clauses in transaction agreements, and drafting rules for arbitral and ADR institutions.
She has experience in all aspects of litigation, from pre-trial through discovery, trial and appeal (including briefing and argument to the Illinois Supreme Court).
