Sarah is a member of McGrath’s Business and Corporate group, where she clerked for two years during law school before joining the firm as an associate in 2020. Sarah is uniquely ready to advise clients at this early stage in her career because she has spent the last seven years preparing to support business clients in all aspects of their operations, having received her Bachelor of Business Administration from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles and her law degree from the University of Nebraska with a concentration on Business Transactions.
Her driven interest in playing a role in corporate clients’ success resulted in her academic excellence being recognized magna cum laude at Loyola. She graduated from the University of Nebraska College of Law with high distinction and served as Executive Editor of the Nebraska Law Review. Because she recognized the importance for many businesses of understanding international market places, she also studied in Germany in 2015.
Sarah has experience preparing business formations, various forms of purchase agreements and leases, and a broad range of commercial contracts. She has participated in due diligence reviews, lead research on key legal issues core to transactions, and prepared and overseen closing checklists for many transactions. In addition, Sarah gained valuable practical experience as a student attorney for the University of Nebraska Weibling Entrepreneurship Clinic.

As part of incorporating and conducting your business, Nebraska statutes generally provide that certain formalities be followed — whether you’re appointing a board of directors, authorizing and issuing shares to shareholders, or obtaining director or shareholder approval for certain actions. Performing these formalities incorrectly (or not at all) can create questions as to their validity. If a director’s appointment or a shareholder’s shares are invalid, it can discredit subsequent transactions (such as declaring dividends, borrowing funds, buying assets, etc.).
When parties begin the negotiation process for the sale of a business, a buyer will usually present a letter of intent summarizing the material terms of the offer. A letter of intent may also be called a term sheet or memorandum of understanding. The goal of a letter of intent is to settle the key material terms up front and specify what each party brings to the table.
