Several law firms with Indiana ties have been recognized recently.

Six firms with offices in Indianapolis were included on The American Lawyer magazine's first Women in Law Firms study. Indiana-based firms included Ice Miller, which ranked No. 5 on the list with 26.9 percent women partners; Baker & Daniels at No. 111 with 19.4 percent women partners; and Barnes & Thornburg at No. 192 with 16.5 percent women partners. Ice Miller also reported the highest percentage of female equity partners among the 180 firms of the Am Law 200 that submitted data, which also listed the percentage of total women lawyers in each firm.

Other firms with Indianapolis offices that were ranked were Littler Mendelson at No. 1, with 29 percent women partners; Frost Brown Todd at No. 67 with 21.8 percent women partners; and Ogletree Deakins was ranked No. 68 with 19.6 percent women partners.

Barnes & Thornburg's Intellectual Property Department was ranked recently by two national publications. The firm ranked 11th in Trademark Insider based on the number of applications submitted to the United States Patent and Trademark Office in 2008. Of the full-service firms listed, Barnes & Thornburg ranked sixth. The practice also was ranked 14th in Intellectual Property Today for the number of trademarks issued in 2008; the firm was the 10th ranked full-service firm listed.

  1. Excellent initiative on the part of the AG. Thankfully someone takes action against predators taking advantage of people who have already been through the wringer. Well done!

  2. Conour will never turn these funds over to his defrauded clients. He tearfully told the court, and his daughters dutifully pledged in interviews, that his first priority is to repay every dime of the money he stole from his clients. Judge Young bought it, much to the chagrin of Conour’s victims. Why would Conour need the $2,262 anyway? Taxpayers are now supporting him, paying for his housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and clothing. If Conour puts the money anywhere but in the restitution fund, he’s proved, once again, what a con artist he continues to be and that he has never had any intention of repaying his clients. Judge Young will be proven wrong... again; Conour has no remorse and the Judge is one of the many conned.

  3. Pass Legislation to require guilty defendants to pay for the costs of lab work, etc as part of court costs...

  4. The fee increase would be livable except for the 11% increase in spending at the Disciplinary Commission. The Commission should be focused on true public harm rather than going on witch hunts against lawyers who dare to criticize judges.

  5. Marijuana is safer than alcohol. AT the time the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act was enacted all major pharmaceutical companies in the US sold marijuana products. 11 Presidents of the US have smoked marijuana. Smoking it does not increase the likelihood that you will get lung cancer. There are numerous reports of canabis oil killing many kinds of incurable cancer.
