Ice Miller Expands Public Affairs Footprint with New D.C. Hire and Consultant Alliance

Ice Miller LLP today announced the addition of attorney George Hornedo to its Public Affairs Group. In addition, Ice Miller LLP and Ice Miller Strategies LLC announced a strategic alliance with Pence Strategy Group to work on a broad range of issues relating to public and political affairs, strategic communications and business development.
“Our goal has always been to build a service-focused team of professionals who care about the needs of our clients and the values of our Firm,” said Lawren Mills, chair of Ice Miller’s Public Affairs Group. “We are especially privileged to grow our team by adding two Hoosier natives who are well positioned to engage at the intersection of the regulatory, legislative and executive branch politics facing business, nonprofit and government entities in 2021.”
Prior to joining Ice Miller, George served as a consultant for the Obama Foundation, where he focused on engaging mayors across the country to take the Reimagining Policing Pledge. He also coordinated with third-party partner organizations to create and market technical assistance opportunities.

During the 2020 election cycle, George served as national deputy political director and national delegate director on the Presidential campaign of current U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg. In these roles, he managed outreach to superdelegates, state legislators, local government officials and county chairs, in addition to leading ballot access efforts for the candidate in all 57 states and jurisdictions. George later joined the Biden-Harris coordinated campaign as a regional voter protection director for Texas.
“In addition to understanding problem solving and how to help our clients and team members achieve solutions, George brings extensive local, state and federal relationships and public policy experience to the Firm,” said Mills. “He is already an incredible asset to our team.” 
John Pence will utilize his experience as a trusted advisor to local, state and federal Republican leaders to provide strategic policy advice to Ice Miller clients. His national and international network of relationships will enable the Ice Miller's Public Affairs Group to engage public officials to support the policy and legal goals and needs of the Firm’s clients.
“John’s experience and network of relationships will be a valuable resource to our clients and our group,” said Mills. “His engagement with Spanish-speaking communities and grassroots networks will elevate the services we are able to offer our clients and our ability to deliver effective public affairs services. We are glad to have him as a strategic partner in our work.”
