Sarah Martin Partner

Sarah is a partner in our business team and runs our Silverdale office. Her in-depth knowledge of commercial law means she can advise our business clients on a range of issues.

Sarah is widely experienced in drafting commercial agreements, business sales and acquisitions and business structuring and finance, as well as private client matters, trust and asset planning.

She has lived in the Warkworth/Matakana area for all of her life, and loves the more relaxed country lifestyle it offers. When not at work, Sarah is spending time with her husband, Mike and young children (Lucy and Ben). Sarah enjoys the Matakana lifestyle and is often out walking and running at Omaha then working on her lifestyle block and getting green-fingered in her budding vegetable garden.


“I started with Simpson Western as a graduate in 2005 and have grown with the firm. I absolutely love my role and can honestly say I enjoy it every day. My role is varied as I get to help clients with the smallest of transactions right through to multi-million dollar deals and everything in between.”
