Suzan Arden is a partner in the firm’s Real Estate Litigation Group, concentrating on complex litigation matters including lender liability litigation, commercial litigation, employment and labor litigation, and copyright/trademark litigation.
She received her juris doctorate from Harvard Law School in 1995, graduating cum laude, and graduated from Columbia University in 1992 magna cum laude. Arden is admitted to practice law in the state of New York. Originally from London, she has over twenty five years of experience practicing law.
Prior to joining the firm, she worked as an attorney at a boutique real estate and business law firm for almost ten years. Arden represented various investors in individual adversary proceedings.
She also defended engineers in a case involving 7 World Trade Center. On September 11, 2001, Tower 7 of the World Trade Center collapsed. Forty-seven stories came crumpling down, smashing the Consolidated Edison power station beneath. Con Edison claimed that 7 World Trade Center’s negligence proximately caused Con Edison’s loss. However, the court ruled that at the time that 7 World Trade Center was designed and built and its leases executed, it was too farfetched to sustain a claim of negligence.
