Lobach said he devotes equal time to his roles as managing partner and practicing lawyer. 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 the firm for more than 30 years.
One highlight of his career was the pro bono asylum project for the “Golden Venture” refugees who were survivors of a shipwreck, 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.
Lobach’s favorite pastimes include travel and outdoor activities, like camping, hiking, backpacking and skiing. He and his family have traveled extensively. “These experiences provide the perfect antidote to any professional challenges,” he said.
