Fitzpatrick Lentz & Bubba, P.C., a full service law firm based in the Lehigh Valley, today announced changes to the leadership structure of its Corporate Business & Banking Group. Jane P. Long, who has chaired the group for the past 16 years will be stepping back from the daily practice of law and transitioning to Of Counsel with the Firm.
“Jane has done a phenomenal job of building and leading our Corporate, Business & Banking team,” said Joseph A. Bubba, Co-Managing Shareholder. “We are thankful for her leadership and excellence over the years. We wish her well as she reduces her hours spent serving clients and focuses on her other passions – donating her time and energy to several charitable organizations.”
For the remainder of 2019, Marie K. McConnell, Shareholder, will act as the Chair of the Corporate, Business & Banking Group to oversee the completion of several client projects and internal strategic initiatives. Ms. McConnell has been with the Firm for 11 years, and currently serves on a number of internal management committees, including her adjunct position on the Firm’s Executive Committee.
“We appreciate Marie’s willingness to take on the management of this incredibly active practice area over the next nine months and lead several ongoing projects to completion,” said Mr. Bubba. “This strategic transition period will ensure continued success on behalf of our clients.”
“FLB is a very special place, and I have truly enjoyed not only solving my clients’ legal challenges but also overseeing the growth and development of attorneys, paralegals and staff,” said Ms. Long. “I know that our clients will be in good hands with the excellent and deep bench we have in the CBB group, and I look forward to continuing my affiliation with the Firm and to mentoring new attorneys and paralegals as they come on board.”
