For the 17th consecutive year, Chambers USA recognizes Ulmer & Berne LLP as a leading law firm in “Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business.” In the 2019 edition, Chambers recognizes six of the firm’s practices and 15 of the firm’s partners and counsel, including a continued seven-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.
This 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. Clients reported to Chambers that Ulmer’s team is “customer service driven, relationship focused, high performing, and capable of setting the benchmark in several fields of practice.” Another client stated about Ulmer that “Compared with others we have used, they are exceptional – they are head and shoulders above the rest.”
“We’re truly honored to be recognized by our clients in this way,” said Scott P. Kadish, Managing Partner. “We’re incredibly proud of all of our attorneys recognized by Chambers, and of the numerous other hard-working attorneys at Ulmer deserving similar recognition who make it all possible.”
