Veteran local attorney Andrew P. Seiwert will rejoin Indianapolis city staff July 22 as corporation counsel, succeeding Samantha Karn as she takes a position with the University of Indianapolis.

Currently an associate for Indianapolis-based firm Feiwell & Hannoy, Seiwert served as associate corporation counsel for the city in 1988-1990 and 1993-2004.

The corporation counsel is a mayoral appointee who serves as chief attorney for the city and Marion County.

“Andy brings a solid background and understanding of city legal issues from his previous work in the Office of Corporation Counsel,” Mayor Greg Ballard said in a press release. “His many years of experience in city legal and the private sector make him an outstanding choice to lead the city’s team of top notch lawyers.”

Karn is joining UIndy as vice president and general counsel. Karn joined the Office of Corporation Counsel in February 2008 as chief deputy. She was promoted to corporation counsel in November 2009. 

Prior to joining the city, Karn worked as a litigation associate at Mallor Clendening Grodner & Bohrer LLP and Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

  1. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  2. If you only knew....

  3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

  4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

  5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
