Bruce Konzelman brings to KGG a wealth of experience in transactional practice, with an emphasis on commercial and residential real estate and corporate acquisitions. He has orchestrated many multi-million-dollar real estate transactions, including several acquisitions of hotels. But he is just as devoted to clients with smaller business and real estate interests. He is equally experienced in estate planning and estate administration. Bruce provides legal guidance and services to many businesses regarding a broad variety of issues, including entity formation, asset purchases, mergers, and tax consequences of transactions.
Born and raised in Kankakee County, Bruce grew up on a farm in Momence. He remains the owner of a Kankakee County grain farm and spends most of his weekends on his farm. His experience in operating a farm provides him with a level of understanding the farming business that other attorneys cannot provide. He is pleased to provide legal services to many farmers, consistent with KGG’s own roots in serving local farmers.
Bruce served in the United States Navy following college. After law school, he embarked upon his legal career as an attorney for the First National Bank of Chicago. He went into private practice in Rock Island, Illinois, but stayed there only a few years before settling in Will County. He joined an established law firm in Joliet, where he became a partner and continued to practice for many years until joining KGG.
Bruce is happily married and the proud father of four adult children and nine grandchildren. When he isn’t working hard for his clients, he enjoys golf, horticulture, and watching football. He has been a Bears season ticket holder for 40 years.
