Indianapolis law firm Ice Miller is cutting about 2% of its total workforce, a reduction that won’t include any attorneys and that the firm denies is a result of the current economic climate.
The cuts affect 14 positions from various support areas
Over the last few months, we have been engaged in a thorough review of all aspects of our business operations in an effort to increase efficiencies and productivity to better serve our clients. As a result of that review, we determined that we could consolidate some of our internal processes which resulted in much more efficient staffing requirements.
