Sarah Andrews focuses on knowledge management and practice innovation, collaborating with team members across Morgan Lewis’s global network to ensure they take full advantage of our resources. Sarah maps legal processes, creates productivity tools, and conducts training sessions that promote a culture of quality and consistency across matters.
Sarah capitalizes on technology to leverage the advantages of our full-service law firm by connecting lawyers who have experience in specific substantive, client, and jurisdictional matters. She manages quality control and legal process management roles and directs training programs for the labor and employment associates. Sarah strategizes with colleagues to create research protocols for labor and employment counseling projects and mentors lawyers on the efficient management of these projects under fixed-fee and other alternative fee arrangements.
Additionally, Sarah counsels employers in day-to-day labor and employment law matters, often advising on policies that promote litigation avoidance. Her particular focus is the impact of the Affordable Care Act on the Fair Labor Standards Act, including family-friendly workplace policies such as lactation breaks. Sarah drafts employee handbooks and policies for clients that operate in more than one state or across the entire United States.
Prior to joining Morgan Lewis in 2007, Sarah served as a law clerk to Chief Justice Ralph J. Cappy of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and then as a clerk to Chief Judge Gary L. Lancaster of the US District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania in 2010.
