Suzanne S. Mayes is a member in Cozen O’Connor’s Business Law Department. She is chair of the Public and Project Finance Practice Group and serves on the firm’s board of directors. Suzanne joined Cozen O’Connor in June 2007. She focuses her practice on municipal and project finance, particularly in the areas of economic development, transportation, public works, education and housing. Over the last two decades, Suzanne has developed close professional relationships with key government officials at the local, county and state level. Evidence of their high regard for Suzanne’s capabilities is the fact that government representatives often call on her to get involved in their financings. Suzanne’s good rapport and credibility with state and local government officials not only means she is involved in many of the most complex local, county and state financings, it also means she is able to achieve efficient and positive results on behalf of other clients. When appropriate, Suzanne works with Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies to serve as a liaison between the firm’s private clients and government representatives.
