The National Law Journal has released its list of the 350 largest U.S. law firms in 2012 and Indianapolis-based Ice Miller LLP tops one area – gains by percentage of lawyers.

According to the NLJ, Ice Miller went from 219 attorneys in 2011 to 301 in 2012 – a 37.4 percent change. Much of that increase could be attributed to Ice Miller merging with Schottenstein Zox and Dunn Co., LPA in late 2011, a deal that was finalized in January 2012.

Ice Miller ranks No. 143 on the list, up nearly 40 spots from the 2011 rank. It’s not the highest-ranked Indianapolis-based firm. That distinction goes to Barnes & Thornburg LLP, which went up five spots in the 2012 list to No. 87. Other firms with Indianapolis as their largest U.S. office include Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP at No. 188; Hall Render Killian Heath & Lyman P.C. at No. 238; and Krieg DeVault LLP at No. 320.

Ogletree Deakins Nash Smoak & Stewart, which has an Indianapolis office, saw a big leap in associate hiring in 2012. It had 221 associates in 2012 as compared to 177 in 2011, a nearly 25 percent increase. The firm’s website currently lists six associates in the Indianapolis office.

  1. Family court judges never fail to surprise me with their irrational thinking. First of all any man who abuses his wife is not fit to be a parent. A man who can't control his anger should not be allowed around his child unsupervised period. Just because he's never been convicted of abusing his child doesn't mean he won't and maybe he hasn't but a man that has such poor judgement and control is not fit to parent without oversight - only a moron would think otherwise. Secondly, why should the mother have to pay? He's the one who made the poor decisions to abuse and he should be the one to pay the price - monetarily and otherwise. Yes it's sad that the little girl may be deprived of her father, but really what kind of father is he - the one that abuses her mother the one that can't even step up and do what's necessary on his own instead the abused mother is to pay for him???? What is this Judge thinking? Another example of how this world rewards bad behavior and punishes those who do right. Way to go Judge - NOT.

  2. Right on. Legalize it. We can take billions away from the drug cartels and help reduce violence in central America and more unwanted illegal immigration all in one fell swoop. cut taxes on the savings from needless incarcerations. On and stop eroding our fourth amendment freedom or whatever's left of it.

  3. "...a switch from crop production to hog production "does not constitute a significant change."??? REALLY?!?! Any judge that cannot see a significant difference between a plant and an animal needs to find another line of work.

  4. Why do so many lawyers get away with lying in court, Jamie Yoak?

  5. Future generations will be amazed that we prosecuted people for possessing a harmless plant. The New York Times came out in favor of legalization in Saturday's edition of the newspaper.
