FLB Hosts Meeting Between Government Officials from Canada and PA

Timothy D. Charlesworth      Apr. 6, 2018

Fitzpatrick Lentz & Bubba was privileged to have hosted Canadian Cabinet Minister Jane Philpott; Consul General Phyllis Yaffe, and Consul and Head Foreign Policy and Diplomacy Services Caroline Desrochers, on the afternoon of April 6, 2018.  These Dignitaries from Canada began their day with a breakfast program at B. Braun Medical in Bethlehem, which was attended by approximately 40 local business leaders.

While at FLB, the Canadian officials met with local State Legislators Peter Schweyer, Mike Schlossberg and Jeanne McNeill to discuss topics of common interest, including trade, economic growth, education — all with a focus on ways to improve commercial relations between the U.S. and its most important trading partner.

This visit to the Lehigh Valley highlights the importance of our region.  FLB was chosen as host primarily due to its International Commercial Law Practice Group, which includes Tim Charlesworth and Ken Charette.  The firm has many clients who do business in Canada, as well as other parts of the world.
