Sarah Newman

Position: Senior Associate

Sarah joined Bull, Son & Schmidt in 2011 and became an accredited specialist in Property Law in 2015.  After studying her law degree part time while working full time as a property secretary and then as a conveyancing paralegal, Sarah found her first job as a junior property lawyer in 2000.

While working for some of the larger law firms in the CBD for the first 5 years of her career, Sarah acted for large corporate clients and has years of experience in property law, doing conveyancing and commercial and retail leasing.

Sarah was employed by Jennifer E Darin Solicitors, a boutique property firm for 6 years, before that firm merged with Bull Son & Schmidt.

Sarah has acted for a wide range of clients from individuals and smaller corporate clients along with large corporations. She has worked with both landlords and tenants of commercial and retail premises and has encountered all types of conveyancing, including acting for interstate and overseas clients.

In 2015 Sarah successfully completed the Law Society’s Specialist Accreditation program and is now an Accredited Specialist in Property Law and was also promoted to be an Senior Associate within the firm.  Additionally, she has also been involved with the North Metropolitan Regional Law Society since 2012, holding the position of Treasurer for 5 years.

Outside the office Sarah has a passion for cats (she currently has two), “real” tea, travel, and she is also an avid motorcyclist.  Wanting to pass on her experience and skills to others Sarah became involved with rider safety and education initiatives. She was also for some years Vice President of her club, Girls Ride Out Inc, a club run by women (predominantly but not exclusively) for women and new riders, and even tried her hand at amateur racing, collecting a few trophies along the way.

Sarah has also been involved in a range of charitable works including fundraising for breast cancer research, blood and organ donation awareness, children’s cancer research and Multiple Sclerosis research.
