Miami, Fla. — Cozen O’Connor announced that Miami office managing partner Susan N. Eisenberg was named a 2020 “Lawyer of the Year” for Litigation- Labor and Employment Law by Best Lawyers in America.
To earn this distinction, attorneys must receive the highest annual ratings from their peers in their respective practices nationwide — for excellence in their legal abilities, professionalism and integrity.
Eisenberg has more than 25 years of experience representing employers in all aspects of employment matters and is widely recognized as one of the leading employment law attorneys in Florida. Eisenberg focuses much of her practice on wage and hour issues both on the compliance and litigation side. She has extensive jury and non-jury trial experience involving sex, race, religion, age, and disability harassment and discrimination issues. She also litigates non-compete and confidentiality issues. Eisenberg is Florida Bar Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law and is a Fellow of the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers. She is also a founding member of the Wage and Hour Defense Institute and its past president.
Eisenberg was named one of the Top Influential Business Women for 2019 by the South Florida Business Journal. In addition to serving as office managing partner of Cozen O’Connor’s Miami office, she has also chaired its Shareholder Nominating Committee and currently sits on its Shareholder Compensation Committee.
