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. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
