|My spath got "sunburned" on the ride to my office and now it has brown spots on the middles and ends of its leaves. Should I prune back these affected leaves or let nature take its course?

|Even though the affected leaves are unsightly, they're still doing their jobs in transporting nutrients to the roots of the plant. I'd leave them alone until more than half of each leaf has died back, then cut them off. Your plant is entering a period of slow growth and leaves removed now will not be replaced for a few months.
