Sarah Powell is a partner in the firm’s Corporate & Business, Commercial Real Estate, and Cannabis Practice Groups.

Sarah’s corporate practice involves everything from the formation to the dissolution of a company and serves clients ranging from new entities and startups to established businesses and repeat entrepreneurs.  She has experience with corporate governance and organization, joint ventures, and a variety of other corporate and transactional matters.

As part of her transactional practice, Sarah has extensive experience with negotiating and drafting contracts, including purchase and sale agreements, commercial leases, and asset purchase agreements. She has significant experience in all aspects of real estate transactions, including completing comprehensive due diligence investigations and complicated title and survey reviews. Sarah has drafted and negotiated complex industrial and commercial leases on behalf of tenants and landlords.

Sarah is also a member of the firm’s cannabis law practice.  She has experience advising clients regarding the licensing process and other regulatory issues at both the state and local levels.  Sarah’s knowledge of and experience with the cannabis space and its quickly evolving statutes and regulations is expansive. She has handled numerous appeals by cannabis businesses against state and municipal agencies and is currently assisting with a pending petition for certiorari before the New Jersey Supreme Court on several nuanced due process issues in the cannabis business licensing process. Sarah’s regulatory knowledge, combined with her corporate and real estate background, make her particularly skilled at serving the many needs of both emerging businesses and large companies in the cannabis industry. In 2023, Sarah and firm partner, Seth Tipton, coauthored New Jersey Cannabis Regulation, the first and only book of its kind focused on New Jersey cannabis law.

She joined the firm in 2018 after practicing several years at a large law firm based out of Philadelphia.  Sarah earned her Juris Doctor from Emory University School of Law.
