Heather Marx is the Vice Chair, Office Managing Partner for Cozen O’Connor’s Minneapolis office.  She was one of the group of attorneys who worked to open Cozen O’Connor’s Minneapolis office in 2013, and, prior to that, she worked for years as a partner in the Minneapolis office of Hinshaw & Culbertson, LLP.  Heather applies her experience in the areas of complex business and commercial litigation to represent a variety of clients. Her practice includes the representation of corporations and individuals in real estate and leasing issues, bankruptcy adversary proceedings, commercial transactions and disputes, and issues of employment law and benefits.

Heather handles contract disputes, commercial and private loans (in regard to both enforcement and defense of loan and mortgage obligations), business liquidation distribution, lease obligations, receivership appointments, real estate transactions, insurance claims, import-export contracts and litigation, and employment termination disputes. Further, Heather's experience in bankruptcy litigation includes years of representing both debtors and creditors in significant adversary disputes and work-outs, including clawback litigation both in Minnesota and other states.

Heather is involved in all aspects of litigation, from initial pleadings through discovery, motion practice, negotiated resolution, and trial. Her extensive litigation experience gives her perspective on how best to achieve her clients’ goals in a cost-effective and positive manner, in even the most competitive of business environments. She has authored numerous articles detailing both litigation mechanics and emerging issues in litigation involving business clients.

Each year since 2008, Heather has been recognized by Minnesota Law & Politics as one of its "Rising Stars."
