Biography

Mindful of the necessary synergy between a client’s business goals and litigation impact, Sue provides exceptional client service through substantive expertise and frequent communication with clients regarding case assessment and strategy. Her clients include mid and large-sized corporations, real estate developers, individuals, and governmental units.

Sue’s sage counseling approach is backed by 20 years of experience litigating a broad range of complex matters in state and federal trial and appellate courts as well as in arbitration and other alternative dispute resolution proceedings. Her practice has a substantive focus on insurance coverage litigation and construction law. Relative to insurance coverage, Sue exclusively represents policyholders against insurance companies and brokers to obtain coverage — often after the insurer denied. In construction, she has represented owners, contractors, and design professionals on a variety of projects.

Sue also offers substantial experience and an ongoing practice in lender liability, securities litigation, noncompetition agreements, and trade secrets cases. Additionally, she has represented clients in breach of contract, warranty claims, products liability and investor disputes.
