LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Two well-respected law firms have joined as one. Kentucky and Indiana-based Stoll Keenon Ogden PLLC (“SKO”) has merged with Indianapolis-based Katz Korin Cunningham, effective July 1, 2022.
Pre-merger, SKO had 145 lawyers in offices in Louisville, Lexington and Frankfort, Kentucky and Indianapolis and Evansville, Ind. With the addition of Katz Korin Cunningham, SKO has more than 180 attorneys and approximately 130 professional staff. With this move, SKO increases its presence in Indianapolis from 7 lawyers to 45 and, in combination with its substantial and growing number of lawyers in Evansville (20), has a total of 65 Indiana-based lawyers and 118 Kentucky-based lawyers. P. Douglas Barr (Lexington/Louisville) remains as the Managing Director of SKO.
The increased presence in the Indianapolis market reflects SKO’s dedication to adding excellent legal services capabilities to serve an increasing regional client base in more than 40 practice areas in a range of industries. SKO serves hundreds of clients in its geographic footprint and represents clients in nearly every state and other countries.
“In a rapidly changing world and business environment, we believe our success has been the product of being nimble enough to anticipate and adapt to change while remaining doggedly determined to hold on to SKO’s primary values – the pursuit of professional excellence and outstanding service to our clients and our communities. We are our clients’ trusted advisors and our clients’ needs have never stopped at state borders,” said Barr, managing director of the merged firm. “The abundant economic connections between Indianapolis, southwest Indiana and Kentucky have meant it has long been part of our strategic plan to grow in Indianapolis. We could not have been luckier to find a partner like Katz Korin Cunningham that shares our values and goals. Katz Korin Cunningham has experienced and highly skilled attorneys who
