Complex Commercial Contract Litigation
John did an excellent job of absorbing the facts related to our IT services client contract litigation and formulating a defense plan. He gave our management team well summarized periodic updates on our probability of outcomes. John was extremely well prepared for hearings and our Mediation. John's still is to be firm in defense of his client but reasonable and respectful to the opposing side and Mediator. In the end we reached a favorable settlement of our case well within our expectations.

Great Corporate Counsel
Our company switched to Ulmer in 2016 and we could not be more pleased with them. Very happy to have John Hands as my point of contact. John and his team are top notch! He always gets me to the correct person for each job, and is very respectful of my time and our budget.

Litigation Attorney | Jan 23
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have worked with and against John in litigation matters for over 20 years. He has always demonstrated the rare ability to exhibit professionalism, graciousness and courtesy while simultaneously representing his client passionately and aggressively. John is savvy, smart, creative and practical. These are all truly remarkable qualities to consistently exhibit in a workplace that is competitive, stressful and often combative. I am proud John is a member of the Greater Cincinnati legal community, regardless of whether he is acting as co-counsel or opposing counsel. I unequivocally give John my highest endorsement."
