Colin J. Keefe, Chair of the firm’s Mergers & Acquisitions Group, was recently profiled by the Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation for their Made Possible campaign. This campaign is an attempt to showcase the stories of real people in the Lehigh Valley who found success as a result of the diverse economic climate of the region. Every person’s definition of success is different, and for Colin this entails having a thriving career while also having the ability to spend quality time with his wife and children.
In his interview, Colin discusses how it was his desire to make time for his family that drew him to the Lehigh Valley. Beginning his career in New York City showed him the struggle one can have between balancing their work with their personal life. His main goal became finding a community that understood and valued a healthy balance between the two. Colin was able to find that in the Lehigh Valley without having to sacrifice his career goals. He found that the booming economy of the region and a growing firm like FLB provide complex and interesting legal challenges, and have allowed his career to flourish to where it is today.
Colin concludes by describing how the Lehigh Valley is rife with opportunities for anyone who is willing to take advantage of them. He advises anyone looking to move to the region to become part of the community, and enjoy the wide array of entertainment the Valley has to offer.
