Sarah Hartley

Attorney, Bryan Cave

Sarah Hartley is an attorney and life-long athlete. She has more than a decade of experience in complex commercial litigation and sports law, having worked at major international law firms in San Diego, New York and Denver. She now focuses her practice on various aspects of the sports world, including work with the US Olympic Committee, various national governing bodies for Olympic sports, and numerous sports leagues around the country. She has helped to create the new U.S. Center for Safe Sport (coming soon in 2017) and works hard to help her clients address and prevent misconduct in sport, with particular focus on making sport safe for young athletes.

Sarah grew up playing soccer, tennis, and squash, and dabbling in numerous other sports. She was a three time N.J. state high school tennis champ, and rowed and played squash for Yale University. Since college, Sarah has continued to play competitive squash, and has coached and mentored young players while serving on the board of Impact 360 (formerly, Mile High Squash). She also has taken up running marathons (including Boston in 2015) while trying to keep up with her far faster husband, Luke. Most recently, she has been spending her time trying to keep pace with her three year old son, Sammy, who can be found riding his bike at breakneck speed, rock climbing, playing tennis, or running around the local high school track as if he owns it.
