ABOUT THIS COMPANY:Started small
As the saying goes, it's not how you start, it's how you finish. Just ask Ulmer & Berne LLP. The firm started small in 1908, when Jacob Ulmer and Joseph Berne founded a partnership in Cleveland. Ulmer & Berne went through several permutations, merging with small firms and changing names, but by 1953 it was still a 10-attorney shop. It wasn't until the late 1980s that the firm started to expand, opening a Columbus outpost. In 1998 Ulmer & Berne cracked the century mark with over 100 lawyers. The firm has since added offices in Cincinnati (2000) and Chicago (2001) en route to becoming the full service, 185-lawyer Midwest player that it is today.
