Many law firm merger calls, little interest

04.03.2019 Written by The Indiana Lawyer

With nearly three dozen attorneys and a practice portfolio that spans health care, litigation, business and real estate, Katz Korin Cunningham in Indianapolis would seem to be a prime target for larger firms looking for merger opportunities.

Managing partner Michael Gabovitch confirmed KKC has been approached as mostly regional firms have inquired if the firm has any interest in combining offices or being acquired.

However, Gabovitch said, his answer is always the same — “unequivocally no.”

The firm, Gabovitch said, equates a merger with giving up some of its freedom.
