The merger between Evansville-based Bamberger Foreman Oswald & Hahn LLP and Kentucky-based Stoll Keenon Ogden PLLC was completed Tuesday, one month ahead of the expected closure date.
Bamberger, founded in 1959, and SKO announced the combining of their firms at the end of June. As part of the merger, Bamberger’s offices in Evansville and Indianapolis are now operating as Stoll Keenon Ogden and the Evansville attorneys will be relocating from the Hulman Building to join the SKO office in the Old National Bank headquarters.
“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. “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.”
Stoll Keenon Ogden traces its roots to 1897 and currently has 144 attorneys working in Louisville, Lexington and Frankfort, Kentucky, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as well as Evansville and Indianapolis. The merger with Bamberger more than doubles SKO’s number of attorneys licensed to practice law in the Hoosier state.
