Sarah Richmond gives clients great perspective.  Her experience has been earned in the representation of hundreds of emerging and established growth companies. Sarah helps clients look over the horizon, delivering the counsel clients need to make legal and broader business decisions with confidence, especially in areas new to them.  

The big picture on Sarah’s work?

  • She’s a partner of many talents but she specializes in general corporate and intellectual property legal services for high-tech companies and their investors. 
  • She advises buyers and sellers in mergers and acquisitions negotiations, and she also represents start-ups and investors in venture capital and “angel” financings.
  • Clients rely on Sarah for day-to-day corporate matters such as business organization, employment issues, structuring shareholder and financing arrangements, corporate governance and equity compensation arrangements. 
  • In intellectual property matters, she has proven experience negotiating software licensing and development arrangements, as well as web-based agreements.
  • She advises standards setting organizations and open source foundations on formation, membership and governance issues.
  • She assists clients in the cannabis industry to establish operations, engage in corporate transactions, and navigate the changing regulatory landscape.

Before joining the firm, Sarah was associated with Hale and Dorr (now WilmerHale) in Boston, where she specialized in corporate transactions and performed ongoing securities and other corporate work for both public and private companies. Prior to Hale and Dorr, she practiced law with Tomotsune, Kimura & Mitomi, a Japanese international finance law firm in Tokyo, where she represented clients engaging in international joint ventures and provided advice to Japanese companies on United States corporate law.

Outside the office Sarah enjoys sushi, movies, waterskiing, Tanglewood and playing chess with her kids. But not all at once.
