WARNING: Individuals have posed as recruiters for a number of well-known law firms in the U.S. and claim to offer work-from-home positions that do not exist. The imposter recruiters require payment of an application fee and/or ask the candidate to supply credit card or bank account information to obtain a job with the firm they claim to represent. Although Ice Miller is not aware of any such fraudulent job offers being made under our name, we want to caution you about this activity. We will never ask applicants for any kind of payment to apply for employment.
