PITTSBURGH, PA – March 3, 2020 – Leech Tishman Fuscaldo & Lampl, LLC. (Leech Tishman) is pleased to announce the addition of a new attorney to the firm, Alexander J. Reyes. Alex joins the firm as a Partner and will serve as Chair of the firm’s Corporate Practice Group. Alex is based in Leech Tishman’s Pittsburgh office, where he will focus his practice on corporate legal matters, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, securities, financings, general transactional matters, and corporate governance.
Alex succeeds Frederick C. Leech, who served as Chair of the Corporate Practice Group since 2015.
Alex is a skilled and knowledgeable leader with over 25 years of diverse legal and business experience, including serving in executive management roles, practicing as in-house counsel and managing business units and corporate legal teams. With his corporate background, Alex also brings corporate executive management experience in capital budgeting, forecasting, financial reporting, strategic planning, and human resource/organizational restructuring.
Prior to joining Leech Tishman, Alex served as Vice President of the Land Department of CNX Resources Corporation (formerly CONSOL Energy Inc.), a publicly-traded Pittsburgh-based producer of natural gas, and formerly coal, and a leading diversified energy company in the United States, where he was employed for the past 14 years. Alex has a depth of experience in the energy industry, specifically in oil & gas, midstream and coal.
As Vice President of the CNX Land Department, Alex provided strategic support to CNX’s Oil & Gas Operations team, overseeing 100+ employees and being responsible for capital expenditures and SG&A expense management. He led the overall reorganization and restructuring of the Land Department.
Alex also held various positions in CNX’s Legal Department, including serving as Associate General Counsel. While in the Legal Department, Alex acted as lead internal counsel on various coal asset acquisitions and divestitures. He directed legal department efforts for several significant E&P strategic transactions for the company, including a pivotal Marcellus shale gas asset acquisition (stock and asset transaction) and subsequent related joint venture transactions. Alex also led new corporate enterprises at CNX, including managing legal and corporate activities related to the newly entered Marcellus and Utica Shale joint ventures.
Alex’s experience prior to CNX included a corporate practice at a large Pittsburgh law firm representing clients spanning across several other diverse industries, both public companies and closely-held businesses, including commercial real estate development, technology start-ups, and manufacturing.
