Within the firm, partner Brian Bosma retired from his selfless (and remarkable!) 30 years of service in the Indiana General Assembly, 12 of which he served as Speaker of the House. We are thrilled to have him continue his service to KGR’s clients. Séamus Boyce joined KGR as we entered the summer, bringing his innovative education law practice and legislative services.
We added law clerk Molly Connor a short while later, working with Séamus to advocate for our education clients. Susie Stroud joined as the cheerful face and voice of KGR, starting as our receptionist in July. Even though she has opted to depart so she and her husband can travel in retirement, she’s left a lasting impact!
We bid bittersweet but fond farewells to valued team members. Senior Associate Mandy Stafford, who returned to KGR from an in-house counsel role, accepted a new in-house position out-of-state. Associate Portia Bailey-Barnard has assumed the position of Vice President of Indianapolis Economic Development with the Indy Chamber of Commerce.
As the year concluded and we turned into 2021, we added two new associates. Adam Doerr brought his five years of focused litigation experience to our business litigation team. Taylor Hunter joined us after four years of practice with one of the country’s largest law firms and adds additional focus to our expanding education team, including her experience with collective bargaining on behalf of education clients and litigating employment matters.
Meanwhile, Jay Kennedy and Lisa Hughes celebrated 40 years at KGR. What a milestone and reflection of dedication to KGR!
We remain extremely proud of our team as we begin 2021. On behalf of the firm, I wish each of you the very best this year and look forward to continuing to serve you.
