Jeffrey D. Lobach
Barley Snyder LLP
Lobach said he devotes equal time to his two roles. As Barley Snyder managing partner, he is the firm’s CEO, responsible for strategic direction and all operations. He is also a transactional lawyer providing counsel to businesses, nonprofits and individuals. He enjoys both jobs.
He has been with Barley Snyder for over 30 year. He’s in the eighth year serving as the firm’s managing partner.
One highlight of his career is the pro bono asylum project for the “Golden Venture” refugees while he was serving as president of the York County Bar Association. “We helped hundreds of refugees (some of whom are now part of my family), unified diverse elements in the community and showcased compassion in central Pennsylvania,” Lobach said.
The most important life lesson he’s learned: It is not about you. It is not about me. It is about us.
Lobach’s favorite pastimes include travel and outdoor activities like camping, hiking, backpacking and skiing. He and his family have been fortunate to have traveled to six continents, 40-some countries, 50 states and nearly all U.S. national parks. “These experiences provide the perfect antidote to any professional challenges,” he said.
