Laterals

We understand switching firms is a difficult process, so we work hard to ensure a smooth transition.

In order to continue providing best-in-class counsel, legal and business advice, we are always looking to add new talent to our team. Ice Miller provides lateral attorneys the opportunity to expand upon their successes and continue the development of their already established practices. Throughout our Firm, you will find a supportive environment that values and rewards growth, inclusion and teamwork. We assist our attorneys in balancing the demands of work and life, encourage community involvement and provide consistent training and support. We also offer the benefit of an experienced team of attorneys who will add value to your practice.
