LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 1, 2017) —Stoll Keenon Ogden PLLC (SKO) and Bamberger, Foreman, Oswald & Hahn, LLP (Bamberger) have closed the previously announced merger of the firms, effective today and one month ahead of schedule.
The merged firm is now operating as Stoll Keenon Ogden PLLC, comprising 144 attorneys with offices in Louisville, Lexington and Frankfort, Ky.; Indianapolis and Evansville, Ind.; and Pittsburgh, Pa. With the addition of Bamberger, SKO more than doubles its number of lawyers licensed to practice law in Indiana.
“Attorneys and staff on both sides have worked diligently to ensure we were able to conclude this in a short time, and they are to be commended,” said SKO Managing Director P. Douglas Barr, who will continue to serve as chair of the firm’s board of directors. “The entire firm is now fully engaged in looking toward the future with expanded legal services, deep bench strength in key practice areas, and a significantly enhanced presence across Indiana to offer our clients.”
Bamberger was founded in Evansville in 1959, establishing its Indianapolis office in 1998. Kentucky-based SKO traces its roots to 1897 and is currently celebrating its 120th anniversary.
