New CEO, new partners for area law firms

Local law firms are starting the new year with new attorneys in their top ranks. And one even has a new CEO.

  • That would be Lancaster-based Barley Snyder, which elected Jennifer Craighead Carey as managing partner and CEO for a two-year term starting in 2024.
  • She succeeds Jeff Lobach, who had led the firm for a decade.
  • Craighead joined Barley in 1993 as an associate in the employment practice group and became a partner in 2001.
  • Lobach, who joined barley Snyder in 1983, will continue as a partner.
  • Under his leadership, the firm grew from 55 attorneys in five offices to nearly 140 attorneys in 11 offices.
  • “Being chosen as our firm’s next managing partner is an incredible honor,” Craighead Carey said in a statement. “I eagerly anticipate extending the firm’s legacy of success, laid down by our previous leaders, with a steadfast commitment to developing our strategic growth, fostering our diversity and inclusion, enhancing client service and our strong culture of striving for excellence.”

 

Here’s a run-down of new members, partners and shareholders at other area firms:

 

McNees: The Harrisburg-based firm elevated one attorney as its newest member.

 

Saxton & Stump: The Lancaster-based law firm named two new equity shareholders.

  • Lane Brody is a member of the firm’s trucking and commercial transportation group and its commercial litigation group, and he is president of the board of the south-central chapter of the Pennsylvania Motor Truck Association.
  • Kenneth McDermott chairs the firm’s liquor licensing and alcohol group and is a member of the hospitality, commercial litigation, business, corporate and tax groups.

 

Stock and Leader: The York-based firm elected a new partner effective Jan. 1.

  • David Walker practices in the firm’s school group, advising clients on labor/employment issues, school business, construction, contracting and pupil-services issues.
