For Immediate Release 

Lancaster, Pa. – A new, concentrated group at Barley Snyder will handle the legal needs of transportation companies throughout the Mid-Atlantic states.

The firm announced it has assembled a Transportation, Distribution & Logistics Industry Group to pool together the knowledge and experience of Barley Snyder’s attorneys and the resources of the firm to provide support to the burgeoning industry throughout the region.

Central Pennsylvania has established itself as a nationally known hub for the transportation industry because of its close proximity and easy highway and rail access to the Mid-Atlantic’s biggest cities and populations. Those factors have led to companies building distribution and logistics warehouses throughout the region near highly traveled roads like interstates 76, 78, 81 and 83, which provide quick and simple access to New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and the entire Mid-Atlantic region.

“This industry has grown immensely in the last decade throughout our region,” said David Confer, the chair of the group. “We are excited to expand our support of these national companies that have invested in establishing a presence here, and who are in need of counsel from attorneys well-versed in local municipal regulations, employment standards and transportation guidelines. We have those resources available to these companies.”

Confer has spent decades running the legal operations of one of York County’s largest distribution companies. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience in how to successfully navigate local codes, regulations and laws. His team of more than a dozen attorneys also have experience in different facets of the industry, including real estate, insurance, tax, finance, employment and supply chain and operations support.

“Our attorneys have worked to meet the increased demand for their expertise in helping these companies to navigate their central Pennsylvania business challenges,” Jeff Lobach, the firm’s managing partner, said. “We decided this was the ideal time to assemble the resources of the firm together to more systematically help this industry to thrive and bring thousands of good-paying jobs to area.”
