Nicholas Merker, CIPT


Ice Miller

Partner, Data Security and Privacy Practice Co-chair

Nick Merker is a partner and chair of Ice Miller’s Data Security and Privacy Practice and Blockchain Practice. His experience is unique, as he is only one of a handful of DSP lawyers in the country who can say that they’ve worked as a computer systems, network and security engineer for 10 years before practicing law. Nick’s forte is being able to quickly judge a room at a client site and determining which hat to wear - lawyer, technologist, or some combination thereof. Nick’s technology background gives him the unique ability to bridge the gap between lawyers and technologists, often times translating between the two disparate disciplines to resolve legal issues. He strives to provide practical advice to clients that they can go implement immediately rather than generate long-winded academic answers to basic legal questions.
