Meet Sarah

As Armanino’s general counsel, Sarah oversees the firm’s legal and risk management efforts. She ensures compliance with legal, regulatory and ethical standards; minimizes and evaluates risk; and oversees a team of in-house lawyers. Areas under her purview include corporate governance, contracts, litigation management and other legal functions that all serve to protect the firm’s interests. With a background in corporate law, Sarah also plays a central role in Armanino’s expansion and growth efforts.

Within the firm, Sarah co-chairs the IDEAL (Inclusion of Diverse Employees and Leaders) Team, and is a passionate advocate for DEI who spearheads initiatives and actively cultivates a sense of belonging for every individual at Armanino. She also leads community outreach efforts in this area, connecting IDEAL with local LGBTQ+ community organizations to participate in Armanino’s PRIDE events each June and generally encouraging community and client engagement in the firm’s DEI efforts.

In addition to experience at large corporate law firms, Sarah served as general counsel for both a large professional services firm and the Milwaukee Brewers.
