Cousineau, Waldhauser, & Kieselbach attorney Whitney Teel attended and presented at the Larson’s Annual Advisory Board Meeting on Minnesota’s workers’ compensation trends for 2017. The Advisory Board consists of one lawyer from each state. Thomas Kieselbach has been a member of Larson’s Advisory Board for years, advising all members on Minnesota workers’ compensation law.

Whitney presented on three significant Minnesota Supreme Court cases Kubis,Hohlt, and Sanchez. The Sanchez decision received nationwide attention for the emerging issues intersecting employment, workers’ compensation and immigration law. Lexis Nexus listed theSanchez case as one of the top 10 workers' compensation cases for 2017.
