The Business Law Fellows Program is highly selective, requiring an extensive application process.

She is committed to advancing lawyers of color and serves on Ice Miller’s Racial Justice Task Force. Additionally, she was appointed by the Lawyer’s Trust Fund of Illinois to co-chair a Working Group on Diversity & Inclusion, and she serves on the Emerging Leaders Council of the Legal Services Corporation (LSC) and the Law Firm Anti-Racism Alliance’s Access to Justice Working Group.

As a partner in Ice Miller’s Data Security & Privacy, Information Technology (IT) & Software Disputes and Benefit Disputes practices, Reena represents buyers and providers of IT services embroiled in issues ranging from billing and performance disputes arising from Master Services Agreements and Service Level Agreements, to copyright and licensing disputes pursuant to Software Licensing and SaaS agreements. She also leads the Firm’s pro bono efforts in Illinois.

A Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT) and Certified Information Privacy Professional – US (CIPP/US), Reena advises on data privacy and security, with a focus on data breach, cybersecurity and InfoSec issues.
