FLB Elevates Attorney Leaders


Fresh off celebrating its 35th anniversary, Fitzpatrick Lentz & Bubba is starting the new year by continuing its focus on the future. FLB announced the following leadership changes for 2024:

● Executive Committee member Colin J. Keefe will assume the role of Deputy Managing Shareholder alongside Managing Shareholder Erich Schock. Colin will focus on the firm’s financial initiatives. Colin is a member of the firm’s Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) group and handles a significant number of these transactions for FLB’s clients. He is handing over the chair of that group as he assumes this new role.

● Stepping into the role of Chair of the M&A Group is Shareholder Kenneth R. Charette. A long-time member of the M&A team, Ken routinely assists entrepreneurs, start-ups, privately held businesses and capital partners with a variety of complex business and investment transactions, including notably in the Food & Beverage sector, a practice group he also chairs.

● Peter E. Iorio is now Chair of the Estate Planning & Administration team. His practice focuses on estate planning, administration of estates and trusts, taxation, beneficiary representation and business succession planning. With the recent acquisition of Fries Law Office, that group has increased in size, and Pete is looking forward to continuing to grow this practice area.

“As we look to the next 35 years of FLB, it’s a positive to see the next generation of leaders carrying our longstanding legacy forward,” says Managing Partner Erich J. Schock. “Just as the Firm’s founders and my generation at FLB have been a part of the growth of the Firm and the Lehigh Valley’s success, we all are confident that FLB has the talent to continue delivering exceptional representation to our clients for decades to come.”

Congratulations to Colin, Ken and Pete as they take on these new roles!
