March 25, 2022 – Ulmer & Berne LLP has once again earned its position as Benchmark Litigation’s 2022 “Ohio Firm of the Year” in recognition of its formidable litigation practice, strategic counsel, and innovative client advocacy. Ulmer received the award at Benchmark’s U.S. East Coast Awards Ceremony on March 24 in New York City where the nation’s leading litigators and their firms were celebrated for their work over the last 12 months.
Paul J. (PJ) Cosgrove, Partner and Group Leader of Ulmer’s Product Liability Practice Group, was in attendance to receive the award before a distinguished crowd of litigators from across the country. The 2022 “Ohio Firm of the Year” award marks the sixth year in a row and the seventh time Ulmer’s creative approach to complex litigation has earned the firm this distinct honor.
Michael Rafalowich, Managing Editor of Benchmark, noted in his editorial about the firm that Ulmer is sought after for its “wide array of litigation services throughout Ohio.” From its offices in Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati, along with others in the Midwest and along the East Coast, Ulmer maintains a deep bench of litigators with unmatched trial experience who address sophisticated litigation matters across the state. Clients interviewed by Benchmark agreed, with one noting, “I utilize Ulmer for any regulatory or litigation needs in the State of Ohio.”

Ungar, Partner and Chair of Ulmer’s Litigation Department, was ranked in the “Top 100 Trial Lawyers in America,” and Frances Floriano Goins, Partner and Co-Group Leader of Ulmer’s Financial Services & Securities Litigation and Cybersecurity & Privacy Practice Groups, was ranked in the “Top 250 Women in Litigation,” both national standings the pair has earned for eight consecutive years.
