Minnesota's Cousineau, Waldhauser & Kieselbach, P.A. is proud to have several of its attorneys serving in national leadership positions with theNational Workers’ Compensation Defense Network (NWCDN). NWCDN selects the top workers’ compensation defense firms from across the country for membership in the organization, and CWK is the representative from Minnesota.

Attorney Thomas Kieselbach is continuing to serve as President of the NWCDN, and he has done an excellent job guiding the organization through the challenges that the last year has presented. Tom ensured that the NWCDN was able to continue to stay connected and provide ongoing education, services, and training for its member organizations. The NWCDN has been thriving and continuing to serve as a driving force in workers’ compensation nationally. CWK joins the other member firms in congratulating Tom on his leadership of the NWCDN, and we are honored to be represented at this national level.
