A critical thinker, Sarah Marberg uses her strong legal analysis and advocacy skills to help clients successfully navigate challenging matters. Her practice focuses on the pharmaceutical, medical device, and health care industries, often in cases around the False Claims Act; Anti-Kickback Statute; Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act; and Stark Law.

Sarah also represents clients in employment cases in state and federal court; matters involving the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA); and internal, federal, and state investigations.

Sarah is deeply involved in white-collar matters at all stages – from responding to subpoenas to negotiating settlement agreements – for companies and individuals. She has significant experience drafting motions to dismiss and white papers addressing complex legal and factual issues.

Sarah maintains a diverse pro bono practice, including: representing a wrongfully-convicted man in Virginia; litigating cases in federal court – including at trial – on behalf of African American farmers against the USDA for violations of the Equal Credit Opportunity Act; and filing amicus briefs for nonprofit advocacy organizations in the U.S. Court of Appeals and U.S. Supreme Court.

Before joining the firm, Sarah clerked for the Honorable Jane R. Roth of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, interned in the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Tennessee, and served as Executive Article Selection Editor for the Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law. As a member of the Vanderbilt Appellate Litigation Clinic, she represented a habeas petitioner in a successful appeal in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.

Sarah began her legal career before law school as a paralegal specialist in the Fraud Section of the Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. She was a member of seven trial teams that prosecuted cases involving securities and wire fraud, conspiracy, and the FCPA, among other federal criminal statutes.
