Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP is pleased to announce that Lisa Pierce Reisz, a partner in the Columbus office, has been elected to the Columbus Bar Association Board of Governors. 

The Board of Governors establishes policies and goals for the Columbus Bar Association (CBA), which is nationally recognized among the most successful metropolitan bar associations.  Reisz was one of three new board members elected to first-time terms.

Reisz is a member of Vorys’ health care and litigation groups.  Her areas of expertise include health care privacy and security including HIPAA/HITECH, breach notification and state privacy laws, state certification and licensing issues, fraud and abuse compliance counseling and litigation, NPDB reporting issues, performance improvement/peer review counseling and litigation, and medical staff governance issues. Reisz also has significant litigation experience including business and commercial disputes, antitrust litigation, insurance coverage disputes, foreclosure litigation, employment discrimination litigation, employer intentional tort litigation and bankruptcy litigation.  Reisz is the firm’s pro bono coordinator and has performed hundreds of hours of pro bono legal work, as well as made a number of presentations on Ohio’s proposed adoption of mandatory reporting for pro bono work. 

“The Columbus Bar Association is a vital part of the Central Ohio legal community.  I am excited and honored to  be a part of its leadership,” Reisz said.  “I look forward to helping ensure that the CBA’s committees and programs continue to meet the needs of all of our members, mentoring young attorneys on the benefits of CBA membership and working to continue the CBA’s long tradition of supporting pro bono legal work in the central Ohio community.”

Reisz received her J.D. summa cum laude from The Ohio State University College of Law and her B.A. cum laude from Harvard University.
