James Dimos, a partner at Frost Brown Todd in Indianapolis, will join the American Bar Association (ABA) as deputy executive director on 31 August.

In his new role, the intellectual property litigator will serve as second in charge of ABA staff and represent the executive director as needed.

"Jim has an extraordinary background for this very senior leadership position on the American Bar Association staff. He's been a bar leader at every level, including president of the Indiana State Bar and service on our Board of Governors," said executive director Jack Rives.

"He's a perfect liaison to state and local bar associations and his years as a practicing attorney will also be invaluable."

Dimos will be responsible for several functional areas, including ensuring effective communications with ABA sections, divisions and forums. This will involve obtaining and understanding the views of these ABA groups on pending issues.

"Jim is a talented lawyer and a wonderful partner, with passion for the legal profession," said John Crockett, chair of Frost Brown Todd. "We will miss him here at Frost Brown Todd, but are excited for him and proud of his selection to serve in senior leadership of the ABA."

Dimos served on the ABA Board of Governors from 2010 to 2013 and as president of the Indiana State Bar Association in 2013-14.

"I am excited by the opportunity to devote all of my energies to the American Bar Association and its members," he said.

Dimos is admitted to the United States Supreme Court, the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, Seventh Circuit and Federal Circuit and the US Court of Federal Claims.
