Lewis and Roca LLP is pleased to announce that partner Susan Freeman has been listed in the inaugural edition of the Benchmark Litigation publication featuring the Top 250 Women in Litigation in the United States. Freeman is one of three women listed in the State of Arizona.
Freeman is a partner who concentrates her practice in two areas: appeals of all kinds, and business bankruptcy. Her bankruptcy practice includes all aspects of business bankruptcy cases, including representation of debtors in possession, committees, secured and unsecured creditors, and entities acquiring assets and claims. She is certified by the Arizona State Bar Board of Legal Specialization as a specialist in bankruptcy law, and is a fellow and former officer and director of the American College of Bankruptcy.
In the area of appeals, she has briefed over 300 appeals and argued many of them, primarily in Arizona appellate courts and the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, but also in other jurisdictions across the country. Last year she briefed and argued a case to the United States Supreme Court. She often assists counsel from other firms who were responsible for cases at the trial level, and has presented the views of many entities as amicus curiae. She is a fellow and director of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers.
While conducting extensive interviews, Benchmark examined recent casework handled by the firms and asked sources to offer their professional opinions on litigators practicing within their state or national practice area. The nominated partners appearing in Top 250 Women were chosen based upon the results that informed the rankings of the 2012 edition of Benchmark Litigation.
