WASHINGTON D.C. – The firm’s Federal Relations Practice Group has added Ronnie Miller to its Washington, D.C., office. Miller, who previously served as the firm’s associate ethics counsel based in Indianapolis, will be expanding the firm’s political law and compliance practice.
In addition to federal compliance, Miller will work with clients on matters involving federal lobbying, election law, campaign finance, political action committees, and government ethics.
“The experience that Ron brings to our D.C. office helps clients navigate the complexities and intricacies of our ever-changing federal, state and local campaign finance, lobbying and ethics laws,” said Karen McGee, managing partner of the Washington, D.C., office. “He brings much value to anyone dealing with the workings of local or federal government entities and with elected officials.”
Miller served as associate ethics counsel for the firm for more than six years in its Indianapolis office, where he focused his practice on ethics and professional responsibility matters, in addition to federal compliance.
Prior to joining Barnes & Thornburg in 2011, Miller was deputy commissioner and general counsel for the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, where he also was the agency’s ethics and compliance officer and served as an administrative law judge. Additionally, his public service has included serving as director of trial court management for the Indiana Supreme Court.
