On August 6, 2018, Flaster Greenberg will be a proud sponsor of the Katz Pro-Am Golf Invitational honoring the late A. Fred Ruttenberg, a former Shareholder with the firm and beloved friend to many. Fred will be posthumously honored during the dinner with the Roger Davis Memorial Community Service Award for his many years of service to the Golf Association of Philadelphia (GAP). The award will be received by his wife, Judy, and family.
Fred Ruttenberg, who passed away in 2016 at the age of 73, was an accomplished corporate and securities lawyer and member of the firm’s Business and Corporate Law Department and Bankruptcy Departments. He concentrated his practice in general corporate law, securities, public and private offerings, mergers and acquisitions, loan transactions and workouts, and bankruptcy and restructuring. Mr. Ruttenberg was rated “AV Preeminent” by Martindale-Hubbell and was named a 2014 “Top Attorney” by SJ Magazine. A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Law School (cum laude, 1966), he also earned his B.S. from the prestigious Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania (1963).
An avid golfer, Mr. Ruttenberg served as counsel to the GAP where he was an active member and volunteer. He served on GAP’s Executive Committee from 1991 through 2011 and spent the last 16 years of his life serving as the association’s General Counsel. His love of golf resulted in his involvement as a tournament and rules official for a variety of tournaments. He also was a past president of the American Cancer Society - Camden County Division and Woodcrest Country Club in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
