On September 27, 2019, Tom Kieselbach of Cousineau, Waldhauser & Kieselbach, P.A. (CWK) of Minnesota, was elected President of  NWCDN, the premier national network of defense counsel. Tom will be serving a one year term.

NWCDN consists of lawyers from 45 states and Canada. Only one law firm per state is invited for admission. CWK has been a proud member of this organization for years. NWCDN’s goal is to further the interests of insurance, risk and business professionals. We provide clarity on trends and developments locally and nationally. Annually NWCDN sponsors a cutting conference for clients and industry specialists. In 2019 the national conference was in Chicago. In 2020 NWCDN will be in Charlotte and Philadelphia. 

NWCDN also partners with LexisNexis in connection with the publication, “Workers Compensation Emerging Issues Analysis” (WCEIA). WCEIA tracks workers compensation trends and developments nationwide. We anticipate that the book will be available for purchase within the next few weeks. 

We congratulate Tom on taking the leadership role at the NWCDN. This is a singular honor for the firm.
