Hackett puttin’ on The Ritz

Lizanne V. Hackett, an attorney at Flaster/Greenberg, P.C., was appointed to the Board of Directors of The Ritz Theatre Company.

Hackett represents clients in business disputes in the federal and state courts of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. She is a member of Flaster/Greenberg’s litigation, labor and employment, and intellectual property practice groups, and serves on the firm’s technology committee.

She is a member of the Women Advocate Committee of the American Bar Association, and was one of four lawyers in the country selected to the ABA’s Section of Litigation’s Young Lawyer Leadership Program. In 2009, she was named a New Jersey “Rising Star” by Law & Politics Media, publishers of “New Jersey Super Lawyers.”

The Ritz was built in 1927 as a Vaudeville theatre, but since 1986, it has been preserved as a venue for award-winning productions ranging from comedy to the classics, as well as offering a full slate of children’s programming, special events and community charitable performances.

Hackett resides in Voorhees. She is a 1997 graduate of Princeton University, and earned her J.D., cum laude, from Harvard Law School in 2002.
