Ice Miller Named in "50 Best Law Firms for Women" List by Working Mother & Flex-Time Lawyers
Indianapolis - Ice Miller LLP has been named among the 2014 "50 Best Law Firms for Women," by Working Mother and Flex-Time Lawyers. Ice Miller was recognized for the Firm's family friendly policies and business development and career development initiatives that are helping to retain women attorneys and advance them into the leadership pipeline.
Ice Miller has been a longtime leader in providing opportunities for women. The firm's women equity partners represent 24 percent of all equity partners and 46 percent of the associates are women. Thirty percent of the firm's practice group leaders are women and a woman serves on the firm's highest leadership rung as one of three Deputy Managing Partners. The firm will continue its efforts to support, mentor and promote women in leadership roles. This commitment is an ongoing embodiment of the deeply-held belief that diversity builds strength.
"We are committed to the success of our female lawyers, supporting them in a variety of ways, from strategic business development to promoting family friendly values," said Ice Miller Deputy Managing Partner Brenda Horn. "We are very proud of the professional and personal achievements of the women lawyers in the firm and are focused on continuing to foster a culture which makes it possible for our women lawyers to be leaders within the firm and in the communities in which we practice."
Working Mother and Flex-Time Lawyers founded the 50 Best Law Firms for Women initiative in 2007 to celebrate the law firms that are most successful in retaining and promoting women lawyers. Ice Miller was recognized in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2013 and now 2014. The goal is also to give law firms the benchmarking tools to enable them to improve the status of women in their firms in the future.

It is critical that this talent is allowed to succeed, and that the culture of the law industry adjusts to the work life needs of women. The Best Law Firms for Women are leading the way for all law firms to follow. ”
