Ulmer Congratulates 60 of Its Attorneys Named to the 2019 Ohio Super Lawyers List

Ulmer & Berne LLP is proud to announce 60 of its attorneys have been selected to the 2019 list of Ohio Super Lawyers. The list features the top attorneys in the state, chosen for their demonstrated excellence in the practice of law. Of those named from Ulmer, 17 were selected to the “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 the following Ulmer attorneys, evidencing the excellent reputations they have forged in the state as a whole and in their respective metropolitan areas:

Of particular note, Michael N. Ungar, Chair of Ulmer’s Litigation Department, was named as one of the Top 10 attorneys in Ohio and Top 5 attorneys in Cleveland for the seventh consecutive year.

“It is an incredible honor to have Ulmer attorneys selected as some of the highest ranking lawyers in the state,” said Scott P. Kadish, Managing Partner. “We are lucky to have such sophisticated and hard-working attorneys at Ulmer, and I am very proud of all 60 Ohio attorneys recognized by Super Lawyers.”

Each year, no more than 5 percent of lawyers in the state are selected to receive the Super Lawyers honor, and no more than 2.5 percent are selected to receive the Rising Stars honor.
