Say legal studio is the law practice of Sarah Arayess. It has commenced its activities since September 2019. Before that time, Sarah worked from 2013 at a niche law firm with a focus on intellectual property law, advertising law and health, beauty & food law. Sarah Arayess is admitted to The Netherlands Bar as an attorney since 2014.
While closely monitoring commercial interests, Sarah thinks along with companies in a practical way. In addition, she is regularly instructed by other law firms to assist in cases that require her expertise.

Always brought to you in clear language, so you can take the next step well-prepared.
Say legal studio does not only assist in solving issues such as disputes with regulators (such as the Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority) or competitors, but it may also be useful to instruct Say legal proactively, for example in the product development phase or for the design of advertising campaigns. For many departments within companies, from marketing to regulatory affairs, Say legal studio is ‘just a phone call away’.
