We are pleased to announce that Midwest Real Estate News magazine named the Firm eighth on its list of 2009 Top 25 Midwest Real Estate Law Firms – Best of the Best. Ulmer & Berne was once again ranked first in the state of Ohio.

Midwest Real Estate News is one of the region’s leaders in commercial real estate coverage. According to the publication, each year hundreds of surveys are submitted by law firms from across the Midwest (a 14-state region) to the magazine for consideration. Only those law firms that completed a high enough number of transactions and provided top-notch client service while doing so earned one of the coveted rankings.

In the 14-state region alone, Ulmer & Berne completed over 670 transactions with 90 of those transactions valued at above $5 million in 2008. Areas of transaction included commercial, industrial, shopping centers, land, office buildings and multifamily housing.
