Sara’s clients

Sara assists both private and commercial clients in relation to their claims predominantly for breaches of contracts, disputes in the areas of construction, property and professional negligence.

Experience and approach                                                      

Sara is skilled at recognising when a claim may be brought and advises clients on the most appropriate approach to bringing or defending such claim, including exploring options without going to court so that the dispute can be settled as early as possible negating the need for substantial legal costs.  Sara tailors her approach depending on the experience of her clients and acknowledges that it is often a stressful time for them. Her ability to guide clients in this way, by narrowing down the issues, often resolves disputes without needing to commence formal legal proceedings.

In the event legal proceedings are necessary, Sara is equipped with the knowledge to guide clients through the court process whilst also implementing the most efficient steps to solve issues quickly and cost effectively for clients.
