For over 30 years, Lewis Kappes has developed close and trusted client relationships by providing quality legal representation in a variety of practice areas. Headquartered in downtown Indianapolis on the 25th floor of One America Tower, Lewis Kappes is in the heart of the business district and adjacent to federal and state courts. With a second office in Merrillville and attorneys licensed in multiple states, Lewis Kappes offers the depth and experience you would expect from a large law firm, with the responsiveness and attention you would receive from a smaller firm.
Lewis Kappes provides advocacy, planning, transactional and compliance advice, and representation in a wide range of practice areas. Our attorneys represent clients in all forums including state and federal administrative proceedings, state courts, federal district courts, and federal and state appellate courts. Several Lewis Kappes attorneys are mediators, arbitrators, and represent clients in alternative dispute resolution processes.
All attorneys at Lewis Kappes are encouraged to provide at least 50 hours of pro bono services per year, but frequently exceed this goal through a variety of projects and services for members of our community. The firm also seeks out projects that have a significant impact on the less fortunate through class action litigation, civil rights claims, and servicing amicus in appellate proceedings.
