Lindner & Marsack, S.C., one of the region’s most respected and longstanding management-side labor and employment law firms, today announced Joseph Birdsall as the newest associate to join their growing team of leading labor and employment attorneys.

Birdsall defends clients against worker’s compensation claims, advises clients of exposure reduction strategies and keeps clients informed of Wisconsin worker’s compensation law developments. He has particular experience in handling subrogation issues, unreasonable refusal to rehire claims and safety violation claims.

“Joe’s experience across the spectrum of labor and employment law, and especially in the area of worker’s compensation, is a valuable asset for our clients as we help them navigate complex workplace legal challenges,” says Lindner & Marsack Firm President Thomas Mackenzie.

Birdsall received his Juris Doctor from Marquette University Law School in 2013 with certifications in Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution. While in law school, Birdsall served on the Moot Court Executive Board, received the CALI Excellence for the Future Award in Negotiations and interned for The Honorable Kitty K. Brennan, Wisconsin Court of Appeals District I. Prior to joining Lindner & Marsack, Birdsall practiced worker’s compensation defense at a large Milwaukee-based law firm. He is a member of the State Bar of Wisconsin, the American Bar Association, the Milwaukee Bar Association and the Wisconsin Association of Worker’s Compensation Attorneys.

“There are continually new issues, new regulations and new laws that expose employers to all sorts of potential risks,” says Birdsall. “My goal is to stay on the cutting edge of workplace legal developments to ensure my clients are informed, protected and, ultimately, successful.”
