Ice Miller Recognized on Inc. Magazine's List of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies

INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ --- Inc. magazine ranked Ice Miller LLP on its fourth annual Inc. 5000, a ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.  The list represents a comprehensive look at an important segment of the economy—America's independent-minded entrepreneurs.



"The leaders of the companies on this year's Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression," said Inc. president Bob LaPointe.  "The 2010 Inc. 5000 showcases a particularly hardy group of entrepreneurs."

"We are honored to be included on the Inc. 5000 list of America's Fastest Growing Companies," stated Byron Myers, chief managing partner at Ice Miller.  "Ice Miller navigated through the recession by staying focused on delivering legal service in an efficient and cost effective manner.  Our success is a direct result of the strong relationships we have built with our clients."

The 2010 Inc. 5000, unveiled on, serves as a unique illustration of the profound changes taking place in the U.S. economy.  Ice Miller's business category, Business Products & Services, is the top industry by number of companies on the list (640) and total revenue ($80.7 billion).

Despite the fact that most of this year's measuring period of 2006-2009 took place during the latest recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $321.6 billion, up more than 50 percent from last year.  The effects of the recession are seen, however, in the median three-year growth rate, which dropped to 96 percent from last year's 126 percent.  This year's Inc. 5000 employ a record 1.4 million people, up from one million on last year's list.
