Ice Miller and Michael McKenna Create Advocacy Joint Venture

Joint Venture with Former Senior White House Official Expands and Strengthens Firm’s Advocacy Capabilities

Ice Miller LLP is pleased to announce it is joining forces with Michael McKenna, President of MWR Strategies and a former senior White House official, to expand its advocacy, communications and policy capabilities.

This joint venture strengthens the Ice Miller federal advocacy team and enables the Firm to better serve those clients with issues across the federal enterprise. Ice Miller LLP is a full service law firm with over 340 legal professionals in seven offices, advising clients on all aspects of complex legal issues across more than 20 practice areas. Ice Miller’s diverse team of public affairs professionals across multiple offices looks forward to using Mike’s knowledge and experience to expand our capabilities.

Mike most recently worked in the White House as Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy Director of the Office of Legislative Affairs. He previously worked for the Reagan and Bush Administrations. He has consulted for a wide variety of political and corporate clients with respect to government relations, opinion research, marketing, message development and communications strategies.

“Mike has a deep and broad understanding of both policy and political processes. We know he can help our current and prospective clients thrive in the federal policy arena. He understands how Washington works, has deep relationships throughout the Administration and Congress and helps position us for continued growth in Washington and across the country,” said Lawren Mills, Ice Miller partner and chair of the Firm’s Public Affairs Group.

“I’m excited to pursue opportunities jointly with Ice Miller and look forward to serving the needs of their current and prospective clients in Washington and across their footprint,” added Mike.

Mike’s most recent assignment in the West Wing of the White House allowed him to advise the President and his team on critical policy and legislative matters and work closely with Congressional leadership and staff.

Mike’s experience in public opinion research and communications coupled with his policy depth provide great value to clients. Before going to the White House, Mike’s firm, MWR Strategies, served a variety of clients in the energy, environment, transportation and appropriations arenas and executed numerous policy advocacy, communications and opinion research campaigns. He has conducted research and advocated for a variety of corporate, political and association clients over the past three decades, and his work has appeared in a host of outlets including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, National Review, Fox News, MSNBC, CNN and C-SPAN. He has taught at both the University of Denver and the University of Kansas.
