Sarah is an Associate at Roper Greyell, practicing in all areas of employment and labour law with a focus on human rights issues, wrongful dismissal claims, and labour disputes. Highly organized and efficient, Sarah is experienced in all stages of the litigation process, from conducting interviews and assessing risk to negotiating settlements and drafting compelling arguments. Sarah also regularly advises employers on broad range of workplace issues including contracts, policies, occupational health and safety, discipline, terminations, and accommodation issues.

Known for her strong advocacy skills and her ability to navigate complex legal issues, Sarah approaches all her files with tenacity, creativity, and her clients’ business objectives in mind.

Sarah began her legal career at a large national firm where she was exposed to a diverse variety of complex corporate litigation files. During this time she gained experience drafting submissions for all levels of court in British Columbia, she assisted with several Supreme Court of Canada cases, and she successfully represented clients in two contentious and high-stake injunctions.

Sarah completed law school at the University of Toronto. The highlight of her law school experience involved running a job placement program in the legal sector for at-risk youth. She completed her undergraduate degree at Dalhousie University on a four year academic scholarship, where she graduated with a double major in philosophy and psychology.

Outside of the office Sarah enjoys skiing and snow-boarding in the winter, as well as bike-riding and hiking in the summer. She is enthusiastic about any activity that capitalizes on BC’s beautiful backyard. She is also an avid-supporter of performance art in Vancouver, and dabbles in a few art forms recreationally herself.
