For Immediate Release
Reading, Pa. – Barley Snyder has consolidated two of its offices in Berks County to operate in one expanded location. The firm’s Century Boulevard office recently underwent renovations to enlarge and enhance the space. Professionals from the firm’s downtown Reading office, located at 50 North 5th Street, will relocate to the Century Boulevard office which became part of the Barley Snyder footprint in 2022 when the then Leisawitz Heller firm joined Barley Snyder. The expanded space will house a total of 29 attorneys, 15 paralegals and 16 additional staff.
“It has always been a priority to serve our clients in the Greater Reading market and we are committed to making our teams feel connected as much as possible,” said managing partner Jeff Lobach. “We are confident that our combined team will work efficiently in this newly renovated location while providing the same high-quality service to our clients.”
In January 2022, Barley Snyder affiliated with Wyomissing, Pa.-based Leisawitz Heller, adding 14 attorneys, 10 paralegals and eight staff members to the firm. The affiliation represented the largest one-time combination for Barley Snyder since 1991 when firm leadership made the decision to pursue a regional model. Former managing partner of Leisawitz Heller and current Barley Snyder partner Chuck Phillips has supported the firm’s decision to consolidate the downtown Reading office into the Century Boulevard location.
“I have been impressed by the firm’s ongoing commitment to optimize the efficiency of our services and capabilities,” said Phillips. “I look forward to having our team members in the region under one roof while continuing to serve our clients and communities throughout Berks County and beyond.”
Brian Ott, who joined Barley Snyder as a partner in 1999, stated “as an attorney who has been practicing law in the Greater Reading area for over 36 years, this is an exciting milestone. Working in one unified location will enhance our ability to provide exceptional legal services to our friends and clients in the Berks County community.
All attorneys and staff located in Berks County will operate out of 2755 Century Boulevard, Wyomissing, PA 19610.
