Reilly is an associate in the firm’s Real Estate Law group. His practice is focused on facilitating all aspects of real estate transactions. He has represented both buyers and sellers at all stages of commercial property transactions, from drafting the initial agreements to closing. During the due diligence phase, Reilly regularly advises clients on title matters, including reviewing title commitments and title searches prior to closing. He has also reviewed and drafted lease agreements on behalf of landlords.

Reilly takes a practical approach to counseling clients in their real estate matters. He recognizes that real estate transactions require a detailed and precise understanding of key deadlines, deliverables, and goals. Reilly often advises clients on not only the legal documents pertaining to a particular transaction, but also the regulatory and compliance requirements as well. Reilly's experience in interpreting zoning ordinances and state statutes has allowed him to help landowners navigate the complex permitting requirements for land development projects. Additionally, Reilly has counseled clients on various property tax assessment and exemption issues.

Reilly obtained his J.D. from Indiana University Maurer School of Law. While at IU, Reilly served as an editor on the Indiana Law Journal, as well as drafted and interpreted conservation easements and covenants at the School’s Conservation Law Center.

Prior to joining Barley Snyder, Reilly was an attorney with the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General in the Public Protection Division, where he litigated complex public utility regulatory issues including base rate cases and quality of service cases involving Pennsylvania water, gas, telephone, and electric companies.

Reilly is a Lancaster County native and is passionate about the area’s businesses and people that call it home.
