June 2, 2022 – For the 20th consecutive year, Chambers USA recognizes Ulmer & Berne LLP as a leading law firm in “Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business.”
After a detailed assessment of the firm’s work and opinions from clients and external market sources, Chambers ranked five of Ulmer’s practices and 21 of its attorneys in the 2022 edition as among the top in Ohio, New York, across the country, and globally. This includes Ulmer’s Immigration, Intellectual Property, General Commercial Litigation, Real Estate, and Tax practices, which each received recognition for their demonstrated excellence in these sectors.
Four Ulmer attorneys also earned positions in Band 1, the highest possible recognition given by Chambers. This notable group includes Immigration Group Leader and Partner David W. Leopold for Immigration in Ohio, Counsel Anastasia Tonello for Immigration in New York, Partner Frederick N. Widen for Tax in Ohio, and Partner and Litigation Department Chair Michael N. Ungar for General Commercial Litigation in Ohio. This year marks Ungar’s 10th consecutive year receiving this outstanding honor, which was awarded to only seven commercial litigators in the state. Additionally, Leopold and Tonello earned individual nationwide and global rankings for their innovative immigration work.
Chambers’ ratings are significant because the evaluation of client feedback is a key element of the research process. Among the firm’s detailed client responses, clients reported to Chambers that Ulmer’s team is “highly competent and extremely effective,” “the best in terms of communication, transparency, and responsiveness,” and “delivers exceptional value on complicated projects.”
“Earning recognition from Chambers for our depth of expertise is a tremendous honor since we know client feedback is such an important component of its research,” said Scott P. Kadish, Managing Partner. “In every matter, we go above and beyond for our clients, and we are energized by their appreciation of our hardworking team and our collaborative approach to solving their most critical matters.”
