Barley Snyder managing partner Jeff Lobach has agreed to continue his leadership role into its fifth term, making him the longest-serving managing partner in the firm’s history. 

The midstate law firm of more than 100 attorneys elected Lobach to continue as managing partner in 2022 and 2023. 

Barley Snyder’s managing partner acts as the firm’s CEO, overseeing operations as well as long-term planning, the firm wrote in a statement on Thursday. 

In his eight years of leadership, Lobach has helped the firm double in size from 55 attorneys. The firm has also opened five new offices, moved its Malvern office to a larger location and conducted renovations of its York and Hanover offices. 

“I’d be less than truthful if I said this has been an easy two years, because it hasn’t. It hasn’t been easy for anyone,” he said. “But the grit, the tenacity and the strength I saw from our firm’s attorneys and staff since March 2020 has inspired me to continue as the firm’s managing partner. I am honored that the firm’s partnership believes in me enough to trust me with this task.” 

Lobach is a member of the firm’s business, finance & creditors’ rights, real estate and education practice groups, as well as the construction, health care, banking and hospitality industry groups. 

Barley Snyder has offices in Lancaster, York, Reading, Harrisburg, Malvern, Hanover, Gettysburg and Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania and Hunt Valley and Columbia, Maryland.
