Scott P. Kadish, Cincinnati-based partner and Chair of Ulmer & Berne’s Leasing and Retail Practice Groups, has been named to the Midwest Real Estate News Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame for 2015.

Each year, Midwest Real Estate News highlights a select group of real estate professionals who go well above and beyond the call of duty for their clients. Out of a pool of 500 nominees, fewer than 100 were selected for inclusion. Excellent communication, strategic vision, and a consistent dedication to meeting client goals and providing excellent service are some of the major factors the publication takes into account when determining whether a nominee will be included in the Hall of Fame.

Mr. Kadish has decades of experience representing landlords and tenants in the development and lease-up of shopping centers across the country. He also counsels clients on a wide variety of real estate and business transactions, as well as general business law issues.
