Ice Miller to Hire Industry Veterans to Enlarge Public Finance Practice

Ice Miller LLP is substantially enlarging its Public Finance Practice by hiring seven former Bank of New York Mellon (BNYM) employees to expand its existing arbitrage rebate compliance services. Ice Miller’s arbitrage rebate compliance practice dates back to 1986, making it one of the oldest in the country. The rebate compliance experience of the new team members, who will officially join the Firm on June 30, 2021, dates back to 1987.

When asked why the group chose Ice Miller, Samantha Duke commented, “We chose Ice Miller for its team approach and reputation for quality, and the fact that we will now have the option to be able to provide our clients with a legal opinion along with the calculations.”

Professionals Samantha Duke, Kristen Kalinowski, Sally Johnson, Kevin Crump, Caroline Lee, Ambereen Alequresh and Donna VanSlambrook have more than 140 years of combined experience serving clients in the arbitrage rebate area. The individuals most recently worked in the arbitrage rebate compliance area for BNYM and will continue to be based out of Memphis, Tennessee; North Carolina and California.

“The depth of experience and knowledge held by these new team members will allow the Firm to meaningfully expand our rebate work,” said Tyler Kalachnik, vice-chair of Ice Miller’s Public Finance Practice.

Ice Miller rendered its first bond counsel opinion in 1911 and is ranked Number 1 in Indiana in volume and number of transactions as bond counsel and Number 1 in number of transactions among bond counsel firms with offices in Indiana, Ohio and Illinois in 2020 according to The Bond Buyer. It has also consistently been ranked in the top ten in the Midwest as bond counsel over the last decade. The Firm has offices in Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, New York, Pennsylvania and Washington D.C.
