For the 18th consecutive year, Chambers USA recognizes Ulmer & Berne LLP as a leading law firm in “Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business.”
In the 2020 edition, Chambers recognizes five of the firm’s practices – Corporate M&A, Employee Benefits, Intellectual Property, Litigation: General Commercial, and Real Estate. Chambers also recognizes 14 of the firm’s partners, including a continued eight-year Band 1 ranking for Michael N. Ungar, Partner and Chair of Ulmer’s Litigation Department, which is the highest possible recognition given by Chambers.
Chambers’ widely read and respected guide to top firms and lawyers is the culmination of thousands of in-depth interviews, carried out by the largest research team of its kind. Chambers’ ratings are particularly meaningful because client feedback is a significant component of Chambers’ research.
Among the firm’s detailed client feedback, one client reported to Chambers that Ulmer is “the go-to firm for us because of their track record in the industry, and their reputation in the industry is amazing,” while another stated Ulmer’s “team is highly professional. It is well versed in many elements of the law – a full-service organization.”
“During these challenging times, it means a great deal that our clients recognize our commitment to doing everything we can to keep their businesses moving forward,” said Scott P. Kadish, Managing Partner. “We’re very proud of our hardworking attorneys who demonstrate their dedication to our clients every day.”
