Anne Zerbe, an employment attorney, joined the York College of Pennsylvania’s Board of Trustees. Public finance attorney Frannie Reilly joined the Villanova Law Women’s Network Outreach Committee, a group of volunteers from across class years who encourage the professional and personal development of Villanova Law alumnae who identify as women.

Both Zerbe and Reilly are also the co-chairs of McNees’ Public Finance & Government Services Group, a team of attorneys and specialists recently ranked third in Pennsylvania for bond counsel work by a national industry trade publication.

At McNees, Zerbe is a member of the Labor and Employment and Equine Law teams.
