Public Affairs and Lobbying

Our public affairs practice was founded on lobbying and executive branch representation in Indiana. 

Through strategic growth, our footprint extends from Indiana and Ohio to Illinois and Washington, D.C. We bring together a motivated, talented group of professionals who know government inside and out.

Today's complex world demands a comprehensive public affairs approach to solving your issue, whether it is a lobbying matter or an issue involving multiple branches of government. We bring focused strategic thinking, communications savvy and a successful track record of effective grassroots and lobbying campaigns to the table.

Our diverse team of public affairs professionals are respected for their integrity, knowledge, experience and hard work. We come from both sides of the political aisle, and our members have worked inside government and political campaigns. We've taken the time to know elected officials and how they view various issues, so we can help you form the best plan.

When we make a commitment to represent you, we know we have the capacity and resources needed to achieve your goals. You get the attention and responsiveness you deserve from an assigned team of public affairs professionals backed by a deep bench and a full-service law firm.

Ice Miller brings lobbying, political acumen and broad legal experience in one regional firm to meet all your public affairs needs.
