Nick Merker and Lindsay Miller to Present on Autonomous Vehicles at IoT Summit

On Oct. 18, Ice Miller attorneys Nick Merker and Lindsay Miller will present "Rules of the Road: State and Local Government Considerations for Autonomous Vehicle Initiatives" at the Internet of Things (IoT) Summit Chicago. Nick and Lindsay will be joined by Robert Schill of HERE Technologies.

The IoT Summit Chicago, which is in its fifth year, will be from Oct. 18-19 at the Sheraton Grand Chicago. The summit will explore a number of IoT topics such as data ownership and security, investing in the IoT and IoT government policy.

In their presentation, Nick, Lindsay and Robert will examine policy and infrastructure considerations that will need to be made before self-driving vehicles become commonplace. They will specifically outline how this technology will impact decisions by state and local governments.

Ice Miller’s Internet of Things Industry Group focuses on staying ahead of the latest trends in IoT law. Read our state-by-state autonomous vehicle guide here, and read our latest IoT blog on self-driving vehicle legislation here.

Nick is a partner and co-chair of Ice Miller’s Data Security and Privacy (DSP) Practice. His experience is unique, as he is only one of a handful of DSP lawyers in the country who can say they’ve worked as a computer systems, network and security engineer for ten years before practicing law. Nick’s technology background gives him the unique ability to bridge the gap between lawyers and technologists, often translating between the two disparate disciplines to resolve legal issues.

Lindsay is an attorney with the Public Affairs and Government Law Groups. With nearly ten years of experience in technology initiatives, Lindsay has a reputation in the broadband and technology arena as a strong advocate with a successful track record in building relationships with public and private sector stakeholders.
