Partner Justin Steffen Joins Ice Miller

Ice Miller LLP is pleased to welcome partner Justin Steffen to the Firm’s Financial Services Practice Group where he will focus on issues found in emerging technologies, like FinTech, machine learning and artificial intelligence, blockchain and cryptocurrency.

Combining over a decade of experience litigating clients’ most important matters with in-depth, technical knowledge, Justin is positioned to help clients navigate the legal and regulatory issues raised by financial and emerging technologies. A recognized National Law Journal Cryptocurrency, Blockchain, and FinTech Trailblazer and cited authority on virtual currency, lending and FinTech issues, Justin advises clients on a range of issues pertaining to machine learning, the Internet of Things (IoT), mobile payments, blockchain and cryptocurrency.

“Justin’s knowledge, passion and experience representing FinTech and crypto clients have made him a leader in the emerging technology area,” said Steve Humke, chief managing partner of Ice Miller. “Artificial intelligence and blockchain are transforming financial services and other industries, and Justin’s addition will enable the Firm to not only better serve our existing clients, but also to grow our rapidly expanding Blockchain and Data Security and Privacy Practices.”
 
Justin is the founder and chair of the Chicago Bar Association’s Financial and Emerging Technologies Committee, an organizer of the Block(Legal) Tech Conference, a member of FinTEx’s Legal and Regulatory Committee and a frequent public speaker on the intersection of technology and law.
Ice Miller is growing and adapting to newly developing and intersecting fields like blockchain, FinTech and cryptocurrency. As former information technology professionals, system engineers, and analysts, our attorneys understand the technologies involved in these technologies and are able to effectively and efficiently advise clients on all aspects of the complex business, technological, legal and regulatory issues that relate to them.

As clients have more issues that require an understanding of the intersection of technology and law, Ice Miller is excited to welcome attorneys with unique technology backgrounds to the Firm. Justin joins recent new hire partner Guillermo Christensen and 2018 new partner Reena Bajowala in this area. This team bolsters the existing attorneys at the Firm who come from pre-law, technology backgrounds, like Nicholas Merker and Stephen Reynolds.
