Chicago, September 17, 2014 — Cozen O’Connor welcomes Wendy Enerson as a member in its Chicago office, where she brings decades of experience with insurance litigation and dispute resolution. She was previously with Dentons and, along with Kevin Kamraczewski who also became part of the firm’s Chicago office earlier this year, is the second member from Dentons to join Cozen O’Connor recently.
“For decades, Cozen O’Connor has been an industry leader in the insurance arena, where our attorneys offer exceptional depth of knowledge and real-world experience,” said Joseph A. Ziemianski, chair of the Global Insurance Department. “With Wendy as part of our team, and the recent addition of Kevin, Cozen O’Connor continues to build our insurance practice in Chicago. Wendy’s trial experience in courts across the country will allow us to continue to provide robust guidance and advice to our clients facing critical lawsuits.”
Enerson’s practice includes insurance coverage, securities and consumer class-action defense, shareholder disputes, and general commercial litigation. Her trial and appellate experience spans state and federal courts across the United States, and she has particular experience with class-action and complex insurance-related litigation. She has also represented insurers in coverage disputes involving general liability, environmental contamination, asbestos-related claims, sexual abuse claims and bad faith claims.
Enerson received her J.D. from Northwestern University School of Law with honors where she was a member of the Order of the Coif and note and comment editor of the Northwestern Law Review. She earned a B.A. from the University of Illinois.
Enerson devotes considerable time to pro bono matters and has served on the board of Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation. From 2008 through 2011, Enerson has been recognized as a Rising Star by Illinois Super Lawyers.
