In the midst of an increase in the number of law firm mergers and acquisitions across the nation this year, two Indianapolis-area firms have announced that they have joined forces.
In the first merger involving an Indiana firm in 2017, Evansville-based Bamberger Foreman Oswald & Hahn LLP will provide a stronger foothold in the Hoosier state to a Kentucky regional law practice and, in return, will gain a deeper bench of expertise to serve its clients.
Since it was founded in 1959, the law firm of Bamberger Foreman Oswald & Hahn LLP has always had an office in the Hulman Building on Fourth Street in Evansville, but by the end of the summer, the mainstay in the local legal community will have a new name and a new location.
The two law firms will join forces Sept. 1 and have a total of 144 attorneys with offices in Louisville, Lexington and Frankfort, Kentucky, as well as Indianapolis and Evansville, Indiana, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
