Ruggiero, who also serves as Managing Partner of the Firm’s Newark office, represents clients in consumer fraud and other putative class actions and manages the defense of mass tort actions and other personal injury cases often involving catastrophic injuries and deaths arising from allegations of professional negligence, product liability and toxic exposures. She serves as a member of the Firm’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
