Ice Miller is pleased to announce that Deputy Managing Partner Rebecca Seamands and public affairs associate Lacey Berkshire have been selected as 2023 Leadership in Law honorees by The Indiana Lawyer. Seamands earned the Distinguished Barrister Award, while Berkshire was recognized as an Up and Coming Lawyer.

The annual Leadership in Law Awards honor members of the legal community who have shown a commitment to their profession, as well as to the clients and communities they serve. As 2023 honorees, Seamands and Berkshire will be recognized on Wednesday, May 31, at an event celebrating all Leadership in Law Awards winners.

Seamands has represented clients in all stages of litigation, including mediation, arbitration, trial, and appeal.
