Ice Miller Names Jaren Hagler a 2019 LCLD Pathfinder

Ice Miller LLP has chosen Jaren Hagler, an attorney in the Firm’s Tax Group, to be a member of the 2019 class of Pathfinders, a program designed by the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) to train high-performing, early-career attorneys in critical career development strategies including leadership and the building of professional networks.

“This is a great honor for Jaren,” said Steve Humke, chief managing partner of Ice Miller. “It is evidence that he has been identified as having the potential to assume a leadership role, not only at our Firm, but in the legal profession as a whole.”

According to LCLD President Robert J. Grey, Jr., the LCLD Pathfinder Program offers participants “intensive in-person training, online experiential learning and opportunities to network with peers and esteemed LCLD Fellows in small group gatherings. We believe it’s a program that can help catapult a person’s career forward.”

As an attorney in the Firm’s Tax Group, Jaren’s primary concentration is in corporate and partnership tax matters, in which he advises on a variety of state and local income tax issues, including income tax, sales and use tax, and real and personal property tax. Jaren helps clients with regard to tax disputes with the IRS and state department of revenue offices, and property tax offices.

Jaren joins a select group of experienced Ice Miller attorneys from diverse backgrounds who have been recognized for their leadership potential in recent years. Partner Freedom Smith is a 2019 LCLD Fellow, partner Isaac Colunga was a 2018 LCLD Fellow, attorney Charles Bush was a 2018 LCLD Pathfinder and partner Stephen Reynolds was a member of the 2017 class of Fellows.

Founded in 2009, LCLD is a growing organization of more than 300 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners who are personally committed to creating a truly diverse legal profession. The LCLD Pathfinder Program is now in its fourth year as a full-scale program, having been piloted in 2015 among a select number of LCLD Member law firms and corporations. It is an initiative that has filled a gap in LCLD programming, targeting junior associates and the youngest members of corporate law departments. For information, visit
