Ice Miller LLP has been thrilled to be a partner with Equian LLC since its inception. Ice Miller initially represented the current management team in its purchase of the business from Intercontinental Corporation. A few years later, Ice Miller provided legal services to Equian LLC in connection with a joint venture with Health Data Services, a company based in Wisconsin with offices in Rockford, Ill. In 2007, the owners of Equian LLC elected to recapitalize the company and, with the counsel of Ice Miller, entered into a relationship with Great Point Partners, a private equity firm based in Greenwich, Conn., with over $900 million of equity capital under management. Since Great Point's investment in Equian LLC, Ice Miller has represented Equian LLC in the acquisition of five companies located in Florida, Alabama and Iowa which have allowed Equian LLC to expand the solutions it offers and the markets it serves. In addition, Ice Miller also represented Equian LLC in connection with the negotiation of its senior credit facility with a national bank. Throughout this time period, in addition to serving as counsel on transactional and financing matters, Ice Miller has also acted as Equian's outside general counsel and has provided advice on such matters as health care, labor and employment, employee benefits, and litigation.
As Equian LLC continues to grow and prosper, it will remain in need of a full-service law firm to provide the counsel that businesses require in the modern world. Ice Miller intends to stand alongside and serve Equian LLC every step of the way.
