Michael Case (pictured), Eric Baker and Stacey Katz (pictured), all attorneys with ties to the transportation industry, have joined Frost Brown Todd’s Indianapolis office as part of the firm’s transportation, distribution and logistics industry team. Each attorney has served long stints as in-house counsel to transportation companies and, as such, brings a strategic business perspective to his or her practice of law.

He advises transportation and insurance companies on such matters as corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, regulatory and licensing compliance, logistics services contracts, motor carrier services contracts, and independent contractor agreements. Case also has experience assisting with the formation and authorization of alternative risk-bearing entities, including domestic and offshore captives, risk-retention and self-insured retention programs, and workers’ compensation programs.

Baker served nearly two decades as general counsel in the transportation industry, where he advised companies during the strategic planning process, managed legal matters, drafted and reviewed employment policies and documents, and negotiated commercial contracts. Baker focuses on mergers and acquisitions, transportation and logistics regulatory and licensing compliance, commercial contracts and transactions, and general corporate and corporate governance matters, including substantial experience guiding clients in matters involving independent contractor agreements and employment law matters, international licensing and authorized representative agreements. He also supports the firm's clients in commercial litigation, personal injury and liability issues, as well as intellectual property and commercial real estate matters.

Katz, previously general counsel to a large transportation company, has experience advising on all aspects of intermodal transportation, including rail, real estate, corporate compliance and governance, employment, contract, and litigation matters. She assists clients with negotiating, drafting, and interpreting all manner of commercial agreements, while also handling a wide variety of regulatory, corporate, employment, contract, and litigation matters.
