KGR is pleased to announce six of its attorneys were selected for the 2022 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America, including one honoree named “Lawyer of the Year.”

Syd Steele was also chosen as Best Lawyers® 2022 “Lawyer of the Year” in Indianapolis, an award presented to only one individual in each geographical region and practice area. With deep sadness, Syd passed away unexpectedly in May at the age of 81. His family was thrilled to learn of his honor.
Syd was senior counsel and partner at KGR from 2003 until his death. He was a brilliant lawyer and a zealous advocate for his clients. But most of all, he was a fantastically good person – his clients and colleagues loved Syd and his adversaries regularly became friends.
“Till his last day, Syd was doing what he loved, practicing law with the same vigor as our younger attorneys with whom he mentored and collaborated,” said Jim Knauer, a life-long friend and colleague of Syd’s.
KGR is proud of each of our honorees, all of whom earned this recognition through devotion to our clients and the practice of law.
