Craig Pinkus

Craig Pinkus is an attorney and partner with Bose McKinney & Evans LLP of Indianapolis, concentrating in intellectual property and entertainment law. After graduating magna cum laude from Butler with a degree in philosophy, Pinkus acquired his law degree from Harvard University. His interest in music brought him in contact in his early teens with such future greats as Wes Montgomery and Freddie Hubbard. A friendship with Frank Zappa led Pinkus to representing start-up promoters, who evolved into the world's largest live entertainment company. A state champion debater in high school, he received a scholarship to come to Butler and participate on the forensics team that included future CCOM interim dean William Neher. Pinkus also served as student government president.
