Ulmer Congratulates 59 Attorneys Named to the 2018 Ohio Super Lawyers List

Ulmer & Berne LLP is proud to announce that 41 of its attorneys have been selected to the 2018 Ohio Super Lawyers list. In addition, 18 of the firm’s attorneys have been named to the 2018 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.

Special recognition was given to Michael N. Ungar, Partner and Chair of Ulmer’s Litigation Department. For the sixth consecutive year, Mr. Ungar is ranked among the Top 10 attorneys in Ohio and Top 5 in Cleveland. “Mike is very deserving of the recognition,” says Scott P. Kadish, Managing Partner of Ulmer. “We are lucky to have Mike leading our litigation department as he exemplifies the sophistication, hard work and service mentality found throughout our litigation department and across our firm, and I am very proud of all 59 Ulmer attorneys named to this list.”

Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections 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. The result is a credible, comprehensive, and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.

Only five percent of Ohio lawyers are chosen as Ohio Super Lawyers and no more than 2.5 percent in the state are recognized as Rising Stars. Ulmer attorneys receiving this honor for 2018 are:
