Sarah is an experienced commercial, technology and intellectual property lawyer. Sarah started out her legal career at international law firm Allen & Overy LLP working on a range of intellectual property and finance transactions, before moving to the fast-paced in-house world where Sarah’s love of technology grew as a result of her involvement in the technology and operations side of media giant Sky UK Limited. Sarah’s role as a trusted legal and business advisor at Sky included negotiating and advising on technology and intellectual property licensing, supply chain, procurement, carriage and distribution agreements including with global players in the technology and media worlds. Sarah’s stint in the media world continued in the business development and distribution team at the British Broadcasting Corporation which gave Sarah the opportunity again to work on exciting deals with large media and technology companies, start-ups and social media platforms including on content distribution and virtual reality deals.
After 17 years in London, Sarah now enjoys a more rural life in the countryside of North Yorkshire, UK whilst still fulfilling her passion for IP and technology by working alongside companies to provide practical, commercially focused legal advice to start-ups.
