Sarah joined Hayes + Storr in 2018 following a change of career to the legal profession. After a gap year in Switzerland, Sarah attended the University of Exeter, where she graduated with a BA Combined (Hons) degree in French and Italian and spent her year abroad in Rome, and at The University of Montpellier in Southern France.
In a previous career, Sarah worked in international textiles, supplying major UK fashion retailers with garment production based in India and Mauritius. Having qualified as a graduate of the Institute of Export whilst working in commercial import and export roles, Sarah has always been interested in law, particularly contract law. Her business background provides a natural fit for her specialist areas of business and company law, and commercial property here at Hayes + Storr.
She obtained a distinction in both the Graduate Diploma in Law and the Legal Practice Course at De Montfort University, and was awarded the Shakespeare Martineau LLP prize for commercial law. She is a member of Hayes + Storr’s social committee.
Sarah enjoys spending time with her family and walking her two Labradors on the Norfolk beaches as well as the occasional skiing holiday!
