Ice Miller Continues Public Affairs Growth; Welcomes Attorney Lacey Berkshire and Senior Director of Public Affairs Melissa Borom

Ice Miller LLP today announced the addition of attorney Lacey Berkshire and senior director of public affairs Melissa Borom to its growing Public Affairs Group.

“We are best able to serve our clients when we can provide them with a diverse perspective on issues and an extensive network of relationships to address their needs,” said Lawren Mills, chair of Ice Miller’s Public Affairs Group. “Lacey and Melissa both served as interns for our group early in their careers. I am thrilled they chose to come back to the Ice Miller family. The perspective and relationships they bring to our team are critical to our long-term growth as a Firm and will benefit our clients for years to come.”

Lacey’s practice is primarily state legislative and executive branch lobbying. Prior to joining Ice Miller, she served as director of health plans at the Insurance Institute of Indiana where she represented the interests of health insurance companies, pharmacy benefit managers and Medicaid managed care entities. Lacey previously served in legislative and advocacy roles for the Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys Council and the Indiana Credit Union League, respectively.

Melissa’s practice primarily focuses on developing public policy strategy and building client relationships with federal, state and local officials. Prior to joining Ice Miller, she led state and local government affairs for a global aviation company in Illinois, Indiana, Florida, Oklahoma and New York. Melissa previously served as an aide to U.S. Senator Richard “Dick” Durbin and assistant press secretary for U.S. House Representative Peter “Pete” Visclosky. Melissa developed tactical planning efforts to coordinate and implement appropriations policy and procedures for the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations.

Lacey and Melissa are the most recent additions to the Ice Miller Public Affairs Team. Earlier this month, John B. Gregg and Greg Stowers joined the Ice Miller LLP Indianapolis team. Last month, Ice Miller LLP announced the addition of George Hornedo to its D.C. office, and Ice Miller Strategies announced a strategic alliance with John Pence of Pence Strategy Group and the addition of principal Tim Day, who will work in both D.C. and Columbus, Ohio.
