Ulmer & Berne announces that six of its attorneys have been selected to the 2016 Illinois Super Lawyers list.
Three attorneys were selected to the 2016 Illinois Super Lawyers list and three were included in the Illinois Super Lawyers Rising Stars list, a designation given to the legal industry’s best lawyers either 40 years old or younger, or lawyers who have been in practice for 10 years or less.
Annual selections for the Illinois Super Lawyers list 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. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. The objective of the research is to create a credible, comprehensive, and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. Only five percent of Illinois lawyers are chosen as Illinois Super Lawyers and 2.5 percent are selected by the research team as Rising Stars.
Ulmer & Berne attorneys receiving this honor for 2016 are:
