John Kautzman

A selection committee acting on behalf of the Indianapolis Bar Association and the Foundation has announced the selection of John F. Kautzman, Ruckelshaus Kautzman Blackwell Bemis Duncan & Merchant LLP as the recipient of IndyBar’s prestigious Luminary Award of Excellence. Kautzman will be honored at the 2022 IndyBar Recognition Breakfast on Nov. 22.

Formerly known as the Buchanan Award of Excellence, in bestowing its most prestigious award to Kautzman, the Indianapolis Bar Association and Indianapolis Bar Foundation are recognizing his leadership in the legal community and the community at large and his ability to inspire and positively impact others, bringing honor to the legal profession.

2021 was the first year the IndyBar presented the Luminary Award, but the selection committee has drawn inspiration from the former Buchanan Award of Excellence. First presented in 1990, the award was named for former Indianapolis Bar Association and Bar Foundation President Judge Paul H. Buchanan Jr. The award shall be given both to reward accomplishments and inspire others to service.•
