With extensive experience in privacy, media and business litigation, Susan provides strategic guidance and support with respect to data breach claims and other technology-related lawsuits. She represents entrepreneurs and companies of varying size in a broad range of privacy and intellectual property disputes, including those related to software and computer issues, defamation, disparagement, advertising and branding. Susan has an impressive record of negotiating dispute resolutions short of litigation, but she also tries cases and argues motions in court when litigation is unavoidable or in her client’s best interest.
