About Sarah’s Career

Sarah took Law Preview in 2003 before starting her 1L year at Roger Williams University School of Law. After graduation, she received an L.L.M. in taxation from University of Washington School of Law. Sarah has one of the most unique practices we’ve profiled because she has figured out a way to be a BigLaw associate without being tied to a major metropolitan city.

After graduating from the University of Washington, she joined Patton Boggs LLP as an associate in their Anchorage, Alaska office, advising clients on a broad range of issues, including: business formation, regulation compliance, tax-exempt status and related issues, complex litigation, and administrative and appellate work. Focusing on Alaska Native owned businesses, she handles matters of corporate law and governance, securities law, real estate, contracts, employment practices and executive compensation. Sarah also assists Alaska Native Corporations navigate the intricacies of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) and the Alaska corporations laws.

Sarah’s law practice requires her to regularly travel some of the most remote parts of the state. Talk about taking the path less traveled — not many lawyers can say they encountered eight polar bears on their last business trip!
