Meet Sarah Palmer
I’m competitive. And as someone who loves a challenge, I appreciate what it takes to conquer the next big hurdle. Success, if not survival, often depends on preparation, beginning with reliable data and including a commitment to bringing your best game. I advise public and private companies in the life sciences, financial services, and technology industries in corporate transactions including mergers and acquisitions, early-stage financings, and licensing and commercial technology contracts as well as in corporate governance matters. Particularly at the early stage — when any deal you make can support your company’s growth or pose unanticipated risks — you need to make the best move. I’ll handle due diligence for your M&A transaction, draft your breakthrough licensing agreement, and nail down the details in your commercial contracts.
I’ve climbed the tallest mountain in Argentina, I’m a grade school spelling bee champ, and I’m left-handed.
If I weren’t a lawyer, I would be … a wildly successful food and wine critic who gets to travel all over the world, searching for the next best meal.
The most valuable lesson I’ve learned in business is … I have two ears and one mouth, and should use them proportionately. In life and in business, I try to be a careful and considerate listener first.
The most unusual thing in my office is … I don’t find it unusual, but I’ve gotten lots of comments on the hot sauce that sits on my desk.
