For Immediate Release
Lancaster/Lebanon, Pa. – Barley Snyder continues its path for growth announcing a further expansion of services in Pennsylvania by welcoming the attorneys and employees of the Lebanon, Pa.-based law practice of Reilly Wolfson to the firm.
With the transaction, Reilly Wolfson’s eight attorneys, three paralegals and 15 staff members joined Barley Snyder, effective April 1. With the additions, Barley Snyder now boasts 130 attorneys, an all-time high for the firm. This transaction marks the second major addition to the firm within 15 months, as it previously added 14 attorneys from the Wyomissing-based firm Leisawitz Heller in January 2022.
The partners at both firms agreed to pursue the joint affiliation based on shared values, supportive practice offerings for clients, and similar client-oriented cultures. The affiliation enhances Barley Snyder’s strategic direction, filling in its geographic footprint and enabling it to further enhance its community-oriented model.
“It has been a wonderful journey having the opportunity to expand in areas complementary to our existing markets and communities,” managing partner Jeff Lobach said. “The addition of these excellent and widely respected lawyers will attract and retain clients who are loyal to our Lebanon counterparts. We have been active in the Lebanon market for decades and look forward to strengthening relationships there and enhancing our services for years to come.”
Loren Schrum, managing partner of Reilly Wolfson, echoed that sentiment. “Our affiliation with Barley Snyder will give our existing and potential clients access to numerous areas of legal services that we could not otherwise provide, as well as additional support by highly qualified professionals and access to the latest technology. This also provides clients continuity and consistency into the future,” said Schrum.
