Sarah L. Thompson

Sarah Thompson joined our New Lawyers Group (NLG) in 2015. The NLG provides our newest lawyers with the opportunity to gain exposure to different practice areas and lawyering styles before making a commitment to a specific practice. Individuals in the NLG may focus on a particular area of practice, or compare practices, during their first year with Jones Day. As a member of the NLG, Sarah has gained experience with a range of commercial litigation and regulatory matters.

While in law school, Sarah was a student attorney with the University of Michigan Community and Economic Development Clinic. As part of the Clinic, she counseled Detroit-based nonprofit organizations on various transactional and regulatory issues. Sarah continues to focus her pro bono practice on the nonprofit sector, counseling organizations on corporate governance and tax matters. Additionally, she represents veterans through the Allegheny County Bar Foundation Veterans Legal Clinic. [1]
