Two longtime Harrisburg attorneys have found new leadership roles, one prompted by the other’s departure to another law firm.

Manheim Township-based Saxton & Stump this week announced that seasoned hospitality attorney Anthony Foschi is now leading the firm’s 10-attorney hospitality group. He will serve clients from the firm’s Lower Paxton Township office in Dauphin County.

Foschi, who has been practicing law since 1990, was the managing shareholder for Pittsburgh-based Tucker Arensberg‘s office in Lemoyne.  He has been serving the hospitality sector for about 20 years, representing buyers and sellers of hotels, food service organizations, restaurants and public recreation businesses.

“I’m joining an impressive team of M&A lawyers,” he said of a national practice with current clients as far north as Connecticut, south to Florida and west to Texas.

As the Harrisburg area experiences more hotel and restaurant expansion to support a growing population, Foschi said he expects the hospitality practice will get bigger and help fuel the firm’s Dauphin County office expansion. Saxton & Stump moved to Lower Paxton last year from Susquehanna Township. The firm also expanded its Lancaster office and opened a Malvern office.

After Foschi’s departure, Tucker Arensberg announced that white-collar criminal defense attorney Jerry Russo has been named the new managing shareholder of the Cumberland County office.

Russo joined Tucker Arensberg in 2017. His practice concentrates on representing medical professionals, internal corporate investigations, corporate compliance and civil and administrative actions.

From 1989 to 1992, Russo served as senior deputy district attorney in Dauphin County.

“Jerry is a highly skilled and dedicated attorney who is an aggressive advocate for his clients,” said Tom Peterson, managing shareholder of Tucker Arensberg. “We are pleased to have Jerry leading our Harrisburg office as we look to expand in the Harrisburg area.”

Tucker Arensberg has more than 75 attorneys between Pittsburgh, Lemoyne and New York City.
