Ohio Super Lawyers Recognizes 69 Ulmer Attorneys in 2023 Lists

January 6, 2023 – Ulmer & Berne LLP is proud to announce its attorneys have earned multiple honors in the 2023 edition of Ohio Super Lawyers, a research-driven, peer-influenced rating service of outstanding lawyers who have demonstrated excellence in the practice of law.

Sixty-nine Ulmer attorneys were selected to the Ohio Super Lawyers and Ohio Super Lawyers Rising Stars lists. Of those named from Ulmer, 30 were selected to the “Rising Stars” list, a designation reserved for the industry’s best lawyers either 40 years old or under, or in practice for 10 years or less.

Ten Ulmer partners also earned special inclusion on Ohio Super Lawyers’ “Top Lists,” which recognize attorneys who received the highest scores during the publication’s rigorous review process and who have forged excellent reputations in the state as a whole and their respective metropolitan areas:

Among these “Top Lists,” Michael N. Ungar, Chair of Ulmer’s Litigation Department, earned the outstanding distinction of being named one of the five highest ranking attorneys in Cleveland.

Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented, multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive, and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.
