Kyle Hupfer, chairman of the Indiana Republican Party and former Chief Administrative Officer, general counsel and private practitioner, has joined Taft Law as a partner. His practice will primarily focus on general corporate law and strategy, mergers and acquisitions, and government relations.
“I look forward to working with a broad spectrum of clients to help them solve their strategic and legal issues. My interactions with Taft have shown me their entrepreneurial approach to both the practice of law and their relationships with clients. This approach matches what I was looking for in a law firm for my own practice and the type of team that I want to join,” said Hupfer.
Hupfer has a unique perspective and experience to offer Taft clients and will serve as a trusted advisor to both business and government clients. He brings high level senior experience through his prior business executive roles including chief administrative officer and general counsel at IMMI and vice president and general counsel at Proliance Energy as well as through his private law and government experience.
Hupfer has a strong and impressive background in government and politics and will continue in his role as chairman of the Indiana Republican Party. He is also a member of the Republican National Committee and serves as chairman of the resolutions committee. Hupfer most recently served as Governor Holcomb’s campaign manager for his 2020 reelection and previously served as 5th District Republican chairman, the Director of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources for Governor Mitch Daniels, and Chairman of the Indiana State Fair Commission.
“Kyle is well known and highly respected in the Indiana business and political communities and his relationships and experience will provide great benefit to Taft’s clients. We are excited he has selected Taft for the next chapter in his career,” says Brad Schwer, Taft Indianapolis partner-in-charge.
Taft continues its strategic approach to recruiting exceptional legal talent who embody key traits that are crucial to providing strong legal services to clients. By way of example, Taft Indianapolis has strengthened its business, government, and litigation capabilities with the addition of three other attorneys since October. Since Jan. 1, 2020, Taft has hired 34 lateral attorneys, with an additional 15 first-year associates who will join Taft on Jan. 1, 2021.
Hupfer graduated from Manchester University with a B.S. in Business Administration, where he served as team captain of the school’s NCAA Division III Runner-Up basketball team, and he obtained his law degree at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law.
