Susan has been consistently recognized for excellence in the practice of law. Chambers USA reports that she is “widely recognized as a leader at the white-collar bar” and characterizes her practice as a “go-to practice for major white collar matters.” Chambers USA also notes Susan’s “breadth of expertise,” “skill at trial” and “expertise in representing high-profile individuals in enforcement proceedings.” Super Lawyers has identified her as one of the “Top 10 Lawyers in New York.”
Susan has repeatedly warded off indictment and regulatory charges through sound strategic choices, meticulous preparation and forceful advocacy. When cases are brought, she is equally effective. A seasoned trial lawyer, she obtained the acquittal of a Bear Stearns hedge fund manager in a federal jury trial. In 2010, the New York State Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers conferred upon her the Hon. Thurgood S. Marshall Award for Outstanding Criminal Practitioner, an award conferred annually on one practitioner in New York.
After leaving the U.S. Attorney’s Office and before founding Brune Law P.C., Susan founded and for 18 years led Brune & Richard LLP, a firm that The New York Times described as “a top-flight New York litigation boutique.”
