Cozen O’Connor Adds Privacy, Technology, and Class Action Litigation Depth

  • Cozen O’Connor added two significant attorney groups in recent weeks whose niche practices are highly complementary to the work of Cozen’s State Attorneys General Practice.
  • Nine attorneys joined the firm from boutique firm Baer Crossey, bringing deep and broad expertise in the areas of technology regulation and data privacy compliance. The incoming attorneys’ client portfolio embraces a wide spectrum of clients from household names to startups such as wearable tech company Kinetic.
  • A group of five class action litigators, led by Philadelphia-based Meredith Slawe and Michael McTigue, bring extensive experience in litigating consumer protection issues and supplement the AG Practice’s already formidable presence in this space.
  • “There is a parallel between the consumer protection issues that the state attorneys general [practice] is focused on, and the subject of the class actions we defend,” Slawe said. “Privacy is a big issue, mostly at the state and at the federal level, including the collection and use of data, such as credit reporting issues and the collection and retention of consumer data.”
