A proud Hoosier, Veronica Schilb is motivated to help others, through her litigation practice and her interest in local and state government.
Veronica is naturally strategic. She helps analyze rules, regulations and proposed legislation, performs legal research and drafts tailored legal memoranda and related documents for clients.
Prior to joining Barnes & Thornburg full-time, Veronica served as a summer associate and law clerk with the firm. She was also a government relations intern with the Indiana University Office of Government Relations, an extern with the Office of the Indiana Governor, and an intern with the Office of the Vice President of the United States, serving in the counsel’s office.

In these roles, she was instrumental in developing and implementing a system to research, track and review bills and acts each legislative session, and in providing strategic guidance regarding legislative goals and lobbying efforts.
