For Immediate Release 

Lancaster, Pa. – As Barley Snyder’s central Pennsylvania footprint cements its well-deserved status as one of the nation’s most popular tourist destinations, the firm has formed a Hospitality Industry Group to focus on the legal needs of businesses such as hotels, restaurants, entertainment venues, breweries and leisure activities that help make the region such an exciting and attractive place to visit and to live.

The firm has decades of experience in helping hospitality industry clients build a successful business, whether that be aiding the construction and financing of a five-story hotel in a famous tourist area like Hershey or Gettysburg, counseling on the acquisition of a liquor license in Lancaster’s thriving downtown business district or helping a startup team of entrepreneurs open a brewery in downtown Hanover.

Barley Snyder’s Hospitality Industry Group has now pooled its resources of about 10 attorneys and professionals at the firm with experience in the industry both in central Pennsylvania and throughout the mid-Atlantic to serve those businesses whose main purpose is to make people happy on a daily basis.

“This is something we’ve been working on for a while,” said Derek Dissinger, an associate at the firm and one of the driving forces behind starting this new industry group. “Collectively, our attorneys have experience in this industry across our offices and as a firm we have a depth of resources to make hospitality a focused effort on our part. From there it was just a matter of pulling it all together and pooling those resources to serve this industry more effectively and efficiently.”

Managing partner Jeff Lobach, a member of the group whose real estate and restaurant experience make him a perfect fit, said a hospitality group fits seamlessly into the regional model Barley Snyder has built.

“The hospitality industry is so ingrained in central Pennsylvania that it seems perfectly natural for us to be able to have a group that can specifically serve its legal needs,” he said. “We have some of the most famous tourist sites in the nation in Lancaster, Gettysburg and Hershey. It just makes sense to have a regional group that caters to the hospitality industry.”

Anyone with any questions about how Barley Snyder can help their hospitality business should contact any member of the Hospitality Industry Group.
