Sarah Tauman


Sarah Tauman provides sophisticated employment advice and counseling for a wide range of employers. She also provides employment guidance on a variety of transactional matters and has worked on a large number of complex corporate transactions, spanning private equity, emerging company, capital markets and public company work.

She regularly provides guidance related to the negotiation of executive employment arrangements, performance management and employee terminations, proper classification of workers, wage and hour compliance, leave obligations and ADA accommodation, reductions-in-force, personnel policies and employee mobility.
