Kyle Finnegan is an attorney in Ice Miller's Litigation and White Collar Defense & Investigations practice groups. His experience includes litigation on high-stakes matters in a variety of industries: private equity companies, health care companies, publicly traded utilities, and academic institutions. 

He has handled litigation over acquistion disputes, unfair competition, wrongful termination, legal malpractice, and civil fraud litigation in state and federal courts. He has significant experience developing litigation strategies, briefing and arguing motions, taking depositions, overseeing large-scale eDiscovery projects and managing local counsel in international and out-of-state commercial fraud matters. He also regularly counsels clients through responses to civil subpoenas, civil investigative demands (CID), and grand jury subpoenas.

Kyle’s practice also includes internal investigations into whistleblower complaints and allegations of bid-rigging schemes, breaches of fiduciary duties, and other unlawful conduct.    

Kyle’s pro bono practice illustrates the fierce advocacy he brings on behalf of his clients. He served as lead counsel in three actions for violations of Chicago’s housing discrimination ordinance filed with the Chicago Commission on Human Relations (CCHR). Each of these actions resulted in settlements for his clients in amounts more than twice the average award for housing discrimination claims in that venue. In October 2018, the Chicago Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights recognized Kyle with their "Young Lawyer of the Year" award for this work. More recently, he successfully obtained asylum for a political refugee in a contested hearing.  

Kyle formerly served as a clerk for the Honorable Elaine E. Bucklo of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.

He earned his juris doctor from Northwestern University, where he served on the Disability Law Society Board and worked on a multi-year evidence code reform project commissioned by the United Republic of Tanzania. Before law school, Kyle was a research coordinator for the National Industries for the Blind. There, he worked with visually-impaired job candidates and other stakeholders to develop employment programs for people with disabilities through the use of federal procurement contracts.
