KKC Attorney John Higgins Recognized in Leadership in Law


John P. Higgins, a shareholder with Katz Korin Cunningham, has been recognized as an Up & Coming Lawyer Award honoree by The Indiana Lawyer in their 2020 Leadership in Law class. “It’s a tremendous honor to be recognized by The Indiana Lawyer as an Up and Coming Lawyer.” says John, “The award is given to a limited number of attorneys throughout the state who have been recognized by their peers. I am grateful to be counted among that group and thank my peers and The Indiana Lawyer for selecting me for this honor.”

John is a member of the Katz Korin Cunningham Business Litigation practice group and represents clients in all aspects of litigation with a focus on business disputes and construction related litigation as well as professional liability. Of John’s most recent recognition, Michael Gabovitch, Managing Partner, says “It’s always very gratifying when one of our attorneys receives public recognition for the skills and commitment to the practice of law that we have the good fortune of experiencing every day. John has earned universal respect and admiration from his colleagues here at Katz Korin Cunningham and the legal community at large and no one is more deserving of this recognition.”

Commitment to the law and his clients is an unwavering trait that John exhibits. John identifies his most meaningful case as his representation of a World War II veteran who was put under a guardianship. The veteran was diabetic and the guardian placed the veteran in hospice care against his will. Life-prolonging medications, including insulin, were withheld. John was able to convince the court to return the veteran’s medical care and dissolve the guardianship. The veteran survived and he and John have become close friends.

A regular presenter at continuing legal education seminars on attorney ethics, John is a member of the Indiana State Bar Association Legal Ethics Committee and the Indiana Board of Law Examiner's Committee on Character and Fitness.

In addition to being honored in Leadership in Law, John has been named a Super Lawyer® Rising Star in 2019 and 2020. Outside of the practice of law, he is an entrepreneur and founded a sports equipment design and manufacturing company. John has invented a number of products and has numerous patents ranging from electronic control mechanisms to wireless communication technologies.

Leadership in Law recognizes “30 men and women who represent the strength and the future of Indiana’s legal profession."
