Ulmer & Berne LLP announces that 38 of its attorneys have been selected to the 2017 Ohio Super Lawyers list. In addition, 17 of the firm’s attorneys have been selected to the 2017 Ohio Super Lawyers 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.
Ulmer attorneys Michael N. Ungar and Jeffrey F. Peck received special recognition. For the fifth consecutive year, Mr. Ungar is ranked among the Top 10 attorneys in Ohio and Top 5 in Cleveland. Mr. Peck is ranked among the Top 50 in Cincinnati.
Annual selections for the Ohio Super Lawyers list are made using a patented multi-phase 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 Ohio lawyers are chosen as Ohio Super Lawyers and no more than 2.5 percent are recognized as Rising Stars.
