Sarah joined the firm as a summer associate, quickly became a star in the litigation section and served in various leadership posts on her way to being unanimously elected managing partner. While her law firm leadership progression isn’t unusual, her authenticity is - Sarah’s the rare lawyer to successfully integrate her practice and management responsibilities into a big, beautiful life outside the law. She leans into being a daughter and a traveler, a mother and a typewriter collector, a poet and a sister first and we see her lever the skills, patience, fortitude and wisdom earned in those pursuits to make herself a better, stronger and more relatable lawyer, leader and mentor. She’s the best we’ve got and we’re thrilled to have her leading Team B&F. For these reasons and more, we celebrate Sarah Crippen as a Woman Who Leads.
