Nicholas Casto is a senior associate in Ice Miller's Litigation Group.

The primary focus of Nick’s practice is litigation between commercial entities. Nick helps manufacturers, distributors and retailers maximize their competitive advantages by aggressively enforcing their contractual rights. Nick represents clients in disputes involving their agreements with customers, partners, distributors, licensees, lessees and employees. He also frequently defends clients against other claims arising out of their commercial relationships, including fraud, breach of fiduciary duty and business torts. Additionally, Nick works with clients to protect their trade secrets, patents and other intellectual property associated with their businesses.

Nick has substantial experience in all stages of litigation and has helped secure important trial victories for clients whose commercial interests have been threatened when their contractual relationships deteriorated. For example, Nick was part of a team that achieved a defense verdict at trial for a client who was accused of breaching a joint venture agreement and helped successfully obtain a judgment in a jury trial for a commodity seller in a dispute over a long-term supply agreement.

In addition to his commercial background, Nick also has significant experience defending manufacturers in products liability lawsuits. He regularly works with clients to help them avoid judgments in cases involving recreational equipment, medical devices and food products. 

Nick graduated from the University of Michigan, with distinction, in 2009, with a B.A. in English. He received his J.D., cum laude, from the University of Michigan Law School in 2012. While in law school, Nick served as a contributing editor for the Michigan Journal of Law Reform and as a legal intern at the Ann Arbor City Attorney's Office. Prior to joining Ice Miller, Nick was a postgraduate fellow for the Circuit Court of Cook County in Chicago.
