Growing up, Sarah Ellis would accompany her dad, who was a real estate developer and contractor, to his office almost daily and watched his excitement as he put together deals and made plans for new development. Those moments with her dad shaped Sarah’s career path, and she followed in his footsteps, in her own unique way. In a commercial development or transaction, Sarah can be found in a variety of roles, including the architect of the deal, lender’s counsel, title insurance agent, and borrower’s counsel. From government buildings, energy facilities, and manufacturing facilities to gas stations and hotels, there aren’t many project types that Sarah has not participated in. Beyond commercial developments and as Co-Leader of Steptoe & Johnson’s Bankruptcy and Workouts Team, Sarah works closely with banking clients on collateral, bankruptcy, and collection issues.
