Sarah Skinner has consistently focused on the intersections between the accounting and legal worlds. Prior to attending law school, she interned in the tax department at Cherry Bekaert where she was able to gain tax experience. After her first year of law school, Sarah spent the summer with General Counsel at the North Carolina State Auditor’s Office where her duties included, among other tasks, processing fraud hotline complaints. An experienced researcher, Sarah not only completed a dissertation based LL.M program but served as an Advanced Legal Writing Teaching Assistant at Campbell Law School. Sarah began her legal career practicing civil litigation where she handled a wide variety of matters such as construction litigation, foreclosures, personal injury, commercial litigation, estate and trust litigation, and landlord-tenant disputes.
Sarah brings together her accounting and legal backgrounds to help solve client problems. Sarah couples her broad, general commercial legal background with our client’s international and business problems to arrive at elegant solutions that work for their business.
Sarah came to BILTgroup with a broad international background. As the daughter of a Marine, she developed an appreciation for the dynamics of our global community at a young age. During her studies at Meredith College and Campbell Law School, Sarah took advantage of a multitude of international opportunities such as: studying abroad in Costa Rica, competing in the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot (competed in Vienna in 2018 and Hong Kong in 2019), and an adoption law service trip to Panama. While attending law school, Sarah also earned her LL.M from Nottingham Trent University (UK) where she focused her studies on the implication efforts and effects of the UN Convention Against Corruption. Prior to joining BILTgroup, Sarah practiced civil litigation. She is now taking that in-the-courtroom experience to our consulting practice.
