Ice Miller's Blake Schulz Recognized by Indiana Lawyer as Up and Coming Lawyer

Ice Miller LLP congratulates partner Blake Schulz for being honored by the Indiana Lawyer with the Leadership in Law Up and Coming Lawyer Award. The award recognizes Blake for his outstanding leadership skills and positive impact on his community. Each year, the Indiana Lawyer honors members of the legal profession who have made a significant impact in the community and achieved noteworthy success early in their careers with the Leadership in Law Up and Coming Lawyer Award.

“Blake demonstrates exceptional professionalism, leadership skills and work ethic,” said Steve Humke, chief managing partner of Ice Miller. “He embodies all the qualities we look for in our future leaders, and we are proud to recognize his accomplishment.”

Blake focuses his practice on transactional real estate where he represents clients in commercial, industrial and multi-family real estate projects through the acquisition, financing, development, leasing and disposition stages. He is experienced in all aspects of real estate transactions, including site selection, due diligence and contract negotiation and has represented clients at hearings, mediations and other dispute resolution proceedings.

In 2017, Blake served as primary counsel representing a real estate developer in the largest single asset acquisition of a multi-family apartment project in the history of the state of Indiana, with a purchase price in excess of $90 million.

Blake is an active leader in his community. He served on the board of directors for the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Grand Island, which provides community-based child mentoring in Grand Island, Neb. He also served on the board of directors for Third City Community Clinic, which provides health services to those living below the poverty level. Currently, Blake serves on the Young Professionals Advisory Board of the Children's Bureau, Inc.

Blake is also participating in the United Way's Leadership United Class of 2018. The class is a community leadership and board development program that utilizes a combination of classes and practical experiences to help individuals develop leadership skills, increase their knowledge of the community and acquire the skills needed to better serve and address the needs of their communities. As part of the program, Blake is assisting the Indianapolis Legal Aid Society's board of directors.

In the legal community, Blake is chairman of the Indianapolis Bar Association’s Real Estate and Land Use Section and has been on the executive committee for this Section since 2016.
