Tilson, co-chair of Cozen O’Connor’s Labor & Employment Department, and co-managing partner of the firm’s Chicago office, has also been ranked in the Chambers USA guide since 2004. He is highlighted in the rankings as an attorney with “… a long-established practice that has brought him before state and federal courts, alongside administrative judges and arbitrators [and] is described by peers as "a great lawyer" known throughout the United States for his labor and employment prowess.” Tilson has also been recognized by Chambers Global as a Labor & Employment “Leader in the Field.”

Eisenberg, a member in the firm’s Miami office, has also been ranked in the Chambers USA guide since 2004. She is similarly highlighted in the rankings as “first-rate” and “…is highly esteemed for her extensive experience handling wage and hour, non-compete and discrimination concerns.” She is nationally known for her proficiency in wage and hour class action cases. In addition, Eisenberg is board certified by The Florida Bar in Labor and Employment, a fellow of the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers, and a certified mediator and arbitrator with the American Arbitration Association. 

Dowsey, a member of the firm's Insurance Department and office managing partner of the firm's London office, was recognized by clients for his cross-border experience, particularly his work in Chilean matters.
