In Memoriam: Kenneth E. Ahl

In Memoriam
Kenneth E. Ahl
April 29, 2023

It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of our colleague and friend Kenneth E. Ahl on April 29, 2023. Kenneth joined the Pelino & Lentz firm in 2007 and, when Pelino and Archer merged in 2009, joined Archer & Greiner as a partner in the Business Counseling Group in the firm’s Philadelphia office.

Kenneth was a highly respected and warmly admired attorney within the legal community, known for his brilliant legal mind and his great integrity. He began his law career with positions at the Department of State and at the National Office of the Internal Revenue Service. In the words of Deborah Hays, Archer’s Chair, “While Ken shared his extensive corporate and tax legal knowledge and strategic guidance with his clients, he will be remembered most for the personal connections he made with each one.”

Within the legal industry and our regional community, Kenneth was a member of the Board of Directors of the Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia, serving as Vice Chair & Secretary, a member of the Philadelphia Tax Supper Group, as well as a member of the Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, and District of Columbia bar associations.

Kenneth earned his Master of Laws in Taxation at George Washington University, his law degree at University of Virginia, and his Bachelor of Arts degree at The American University.

Archer has lost a great friend and colleague. It was a pleasure to know and work with Kenneth and he will be missed by everyone at the firm.
