Kelley Drye & Warren LLP announced that Lauri A. Mazzuchetti has been appointed managing partner of its Parsippany office. A partner in the firm’s Litigation department, Ms. Mazzuchetti joined Kelley Drye as an associate in 2000 and was elected partner in 2008. In addition to assuming her new leadership roles, Lauri will continue her nationwide practice of representing corporate clients in a wide range of industries, including telecommunications, healthcare, and real estate, in single plaintiff and class action lawsuits, as well as in regulatory inquiries and actions.
Lauri is a frequent commentator on a variety of legal issues, both in the press and on network television, and has been selected as a New Jersey “Super Lawyers’ Rising Star” every year since 2006.
