Saxton & Stump welcomes back litigator Harlan Glasser as equity shareholder

LANCASTER, Pa., February 21, 2023 — Saxton & Stump is pleased to announce that attorney Harlan W. Glasser will rejoin Saxton & Stump on March 1, 2023 as a shareholder in the firm’s Labor and Employment Group, Investigations and Criminal Defense Group, and Healthcare Litigation Group. Glasser worked for the firm from 2015 to 2020 before accepting an appointment as an assistant U.S. attorney for the Middle District of Pennsylvania. He will work with clients to develop risk mitigation strategies and represent his client’s interests in complex litigation.

“We are more than happy to welcome Harlan back to the firm,” said Saxton & Stump CEO James W. Saxton. “We’ve always known him be to an outstanding and hard-working attorney and we’re happy that Harlan is returning to resume private practice with us as we continue to add stellar shareholders to our litigation groups.”

Before joining the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Glasser litigated cases in both federal and state courts across a variety of matter types ranging from employment and business litigation to large, medical professional liability cases. Glasser has defended clients at both the trial and appellate court levels. As an assistant U.S. attorney, he defended complex claims against the United States, its agencies and employees, led investigations and prosecuted enforcement proceedings against both individuals and corporations.  Now, he will bring his three years of representing the federal government’s interests to criminal and civil government investigations and labor and employment disputes for Saxton & Stump’s clients.

Glasser had extensive clerkship experience in both the federal and state trial courts before initially moving into private practice. He served as a senior judicial law clerk for the Hon. Sylvia H. Rambo of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania. Glasser also served as a law clerk for the Hon. Thomas A. Placey and the Hon. J. Wesley Oler, Jr., both of the Cumberland County Court of Common Pleas.

Glasser received his law degree at Penn State Dickinson Law, where he was inducted into the Woolsack Honor Society and served as the Managing Editor of the Penn State International Law Review and is a cum laude graduate of Goucher College.

Glasser joins an impressive group of litigators Saxton & Stump has added in the past year in areas such as Intellectual Property, Investigations and Criminal Defense, Trucking and Commercial Transportation, Healthcare and others. The firm continues to build its roster of trial attorneys as way to serve businesses and individuals by defending and pursuing their interests in court if necessary.
