“Licensed in Indiana. Not admitted in Florida.”
Motivated by her passion for law and helping her clients achieve their goals, Sarah M. Studzinski has provided corporate counsel to businesses for almost ten years. She concentrates her practice in the Corporate Group at Zimmerman Kiser Sutcliffe, assisting clients throughout a company’s life cycle, including the formation, acquisition and transfer process, as well as general business contracts and needs.
As an attorney at ZKS, Sarah appreciates the culture and diversity within the workplace. She respects how welcoming the firm is to new perspectives and ideas, as well as the number of women in the corporate group.
Before joining ZKS, Sarah was a Partner at Bose McKinney & Evans in Indianapolis, Indiana, a research assistant for Professor Mark Janis at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law, and served as a summer contracts intern at Cook Medical. Before law school, she mentored student-athletes, worked for the Purdue Athletic Department, and interned for London Skolars RLFC, a rugby team in North London.
Sarah also studied theatre before pursuing law, discovering that actors and lawyers have more similarities than one might think. According to her, as a lawyer (and an actor), you must handle every role with a blank slate, with no preconceived notions, biases, or judgments. Sarah approaches every client she works with by going in with an open mind and learning to adapt and adjust to any situation while thinking outside the box.
As a member of Mackrell International, Sarah serves as one of the “Champions” in North America for a group of young attorneys known as the Next Generation. Sarah also served as chair of FORTE, a young professionals group at the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. In 2020, she was named an Up-and-Coming Lawyer as a part of the Leadership in Law Awards in Indianapolis, Indiana, and was a finalist for Indy’s Best and Brightest (Law).
Outside work, Sarah is a long-distance runner, having completed several marathon and half-marathon races, including the Philadelphia Marathon and the Disneyland Paris Run Weekend half-marathon. Sarah also enjoys traveling, baking, and cheering on the US Women’s Soccer team. Something you might not know about Sarah is that she once performed at the Grand Ole Opry and that she has a collection of rubber ducks.
Sarah lives by the belief that life is more than just business. It’s finding those things that make everyday activities enjoyable. She values the notion of taking advantage of all that life has to offer by finding joy in what you do and finding joy in who you are.
