Ice Miller Strategies Welcomes Martin Edwards III as Principal

Ice Miller Strategies is pleased to welcome principal Martin Edwards III. Martin represents clients and works closely with legislators to contribute to energy policy, cybersecurity and environmental legislation.

Prior to joining Ice Miller Strategies, Martin served as director and later vice president of legislative affairs for the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America for more than 20 years. As vice president, Martin acted as the primary natural gas pipeline contact on Capitol Hill for policymakers and Congressional committees. He achieved organizational objectives in such legislation as the Pipeline Safety Improvement Act of 2002, the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and the Protecting Our Infrastructure of Pipelines and Enhancing Safety Act of 2016.

“Martin has been building relationships and shaping legislation within the energy sector for decades,” said Clayton Heil, Ice Miller Strategies co-founder and principal. “Our clients are very fortunate to have him join our team.”

Prior to his work with INGAA, Martin was legislative director to Representative Ralph Hall of Texas, advising him on the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittees on Energy, Power and Telecommunications. Martin led overall legislative activity for Hall, developed amendments, wrote speeches, oversaw constituent communication and apprised industry trade leaders and media on relevant industry developments.

Named “Top Lobbyist” by The Hill 14 years in a row, Martin excels at setting goals and priorities for clients, organizing lobbying and political activities, ensuring compliance with federal guidelines and reporting results. In addition to shaping substantive legislation, Martin has successfully engaged White House staff in the development of executive orders directing new policy and worked with a diverse range of associations to support client initiatives.
