Sarah Reynolds is an associate in Mayer Brown’s Chicago office and a member of the Litigation & Dispute Resolution practice. She divides her dispute resolution practice among environmental site-based torts, international and domestic arbitration, and insurance dispute and coverage advice.

Sarah is a foundational member of Mayer Brown’s full-service, multidisciplinary Environmental Site-Based Tort practice that represents clients facing litigation related to what are generally single-source single-site spills, leaks, air emissions, explosions, or other chemical/toxic releases. These matters involve coordinating a combination of individual and class claims proceeding serially or simultaneously in multiple jurisdictions, as well as complex regulatory, appellate, e-discovery, expert, and damages issues. In addition to litigation, clients are often the targets of parallel government investigations and regulatory inquiries. Sarah has experience across these skill sets in a variety of industry sectors, including chemicals, and transportation.

Sarah is also an integral member of Mayer Brown’s International Arbitration practice. She represents multinational corporations before domestic and international arbitral bodies, including the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the International Center for Dispute Resolution (ICDR). Those disputes range from complex commercial supply agreements to pharmaceutical licensing agreements. Sarah’s arbitration experience also includes obtaining and defending against judicial review of arbitration awards, drafting and reviewing arbitration clauses in transaction agreements, and drafting rules for arbitral and ADR institutions.

Additionally, Sarah has extensive experience in both insurance litigation and in providing strategic coverage advice in connection with business transactions, reps and warranty coverage, D&O, and captive insurance programs.

She has experience in all aspects of litigation, from pre-trial through discovery, trial and appeal (including briefing and argument to the Illinois Supreme Court). She has represented clients in cases involving a range of substantive issues, and in government investigations involving SEC, FINRA, NTSB, FRA, and FDA.
Sarah is a frequent contributor to Mayer Brown’s quarterly publication, International Arbitration Perspective. She was appointed to the ICC’s Young Arbitrators Committee for the 2014-2016 term, and serves as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Illinois-Chicago where she teaches a graduate-level course entitled “International and Domestic Environmental Dispute Resolution.”

Sarah has been a member of the Litigation & Dispute Resolution practice in Mayer Brown’s Chicago office since 2005.
