In addition, for the fifth year in a row, Michael N. Ungar, Chair of Ulmer’s Litigation Department, has been named to the list of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in America. Benchmark’s editorial outlines how Ungar is beloved by his peers noting that one said, “If I had to choose one litigator who’s at the top, someone that would be my first choice to represent me in a tough case, Michael would be my first call.” The attorneys in the Top 100 Trial Lawyers list are carefully selected and considered to be the elite trial strategists in their respective fields. They are chosen based on a geographically diverse and intensive peer and client review driven study.
“Our Litigation Department strives every day to deliver the highest level of service to our clients, and the partners being honored by Benchmark are incredibly deserving of this recognition,” said Scott P. Kadish, Managing Partner. “Their hard work and consistent focus on providing exceptional counsel is reflective of our entire team, and we are very proud that the accomplishments of our Litigation Department and our attorneys are being recognized by such a respected organization.”
These new honors follow Ulmer’s firm-wide recognition as Benchmark’s 2018 Ohio “Firm of the Year.” Ulmer’s Litigation Department, which represents clients in courts and alternative dispute resolution forums throughout the nation, is an unprecedented three-time recipient of the award.
