Eight associates of Stoll Keenon Ogden PLLC are now partners of the Louisville-based law firm.
The firm announced Kathryn Beck, Will Cartwright, Kaitlyn George, Chad Hardin, Lindsey Howard, Emily Mattingly, Amy Miles and Joel Nagle as its newest partners. All the promotions were for Louisville-based attorneys, aside from Cartwright, who works in the Evansville, Indiana, office and Nagle, who works in the Indianapolis office of the firm.
The promotions come across a variety of industry practice groups and reflect the firm’s push to advance women and other minorities in the legal industry. Earlier this year, Stoll Keenon Ogden additionally promoted two more female partners, Katie Langan of the Louisville office and Krista Lockyear, who joined the Evansville office as an equity partner of the firm.
In September, Stoll Keenon Ogden was one of 100 firms across the country recognized with a Mansfield 3.0 Certification in 2020. The Mansfield Rule, named after Arabella Mansfield, the first woman named to the United States bar in 1869, looks to give law firms a framework for increasing the amount of women and underrepresented groups in the legal industry.
