People

Suzanne Nero is a skilled litigator who drives positive results through efficient and creative client-driven solutions.  Suzanne’s practice focuses on complex commercial litigation where she has represented numerous Fortune 500 companies in an array of disputes in both state and federal court.  A trial lawyer by nature, Suzanne has tried multiple cases to verdict where she has obtained favorable results for her clients.  But Suzanne excels in developing case strategies that dispose of litigation before trial whether through motion practice or other means.  Suzanne develops personal relationships with her clients to identify their goals with each litigation and then crafts and executes strategies designed to meet those goals in the most cost-effective manner.

Much of Suzanne’s career has specialized in antitrust work where she has represented multiple publicly traded companies in high-profile litigations.  Suzanne has managed cases brought by both private litigants on behalf of a putative class and by U.S. and foreign regulatory agencies.  She has also been personally retained to provide antitrust advice and counsel to clients outside of active litigation.  In addition to her antirust work, Suzanne maintains a robust consumer class action practice where she regularly represents clients across the country, with a particular focus on cases brought under California’s consumer protection laws. 

Suzanne has a passion for trial work, serving as a coach of the UC Berkeley School of Law Trial Advocacy team and regularly speaking at CLE events on trial advocacy skills.  Suzanne is also a Pathfinder in the Leadership Council for Legal Diversity and is chair of the Women Lawyers of Alameda County’s Diversity Committee.
