Cozen O’Connor continues to expand in the Midwest, adding veteran labor and employment litigator Tina Syring as a member in its Minneapolis office and national Labor & Employment Department. Syring was most recently a partner in Barnes & Thornburg, LLP’s Minneapolis office. In addition, she previously served as both a human resources director and in-house counsel. Tina uses this experience to counsel employers on labor and employment issues with a business focus. She works with employers in addressing complex issues such as social media issues, executive terminations, allegations of harassment or discrimination, wage and hour strategies, whistleblower complaints and long-term secession planning. She also helps prepare employers for audits by the Department of Labor on wage and hour matters and has extensive experience in drafting and negotiating executive compensation agreements for publicly traded and private companies.
“We are thrilled to welcome Tina to Cozen O’Connor,” said Joe Tilson, Cozen O’Connor’s Labor and Employment Department Co-Chair. “Tina brings a unique set of skills to her labor and employment practice with her experience as both in-house counsel and as a human resources director. She is an incredible asset to our Minneapolis office, strengthening its L&E practice while also adding depth to our national practice.”
