Mark Ulmer, an eminent domain attorney and Miami Shores, Fla., city councilman, has merged his practice with two other attorneys in the field — Wiley Hicks and Bob Schreiber. The new firm, Ulmer Hicks & Schreiber in Coral Gables, Fla., is handling a total of $100 million in property throughout South Florida. The merger took place July 1. “This gives us more flexibility and allows us to handle bigger cases in a more efficient way,” says Hicks. “We all know each other and get along well.” Ulmer represents many of the outdoor advertising companies in more than 30 states, as well as the city of Fort Lauderdale and Monroe County. He also represents the city of Fort Lauderdale in its case against the owners of the old Hyde Park Market site on Las Olas Boulevard downtown, which the city wants to turn into a park. Hicks, the son of Bill Hicks, founder of Colson Hicks Eidson in Coral Gables, and Schreiber, the former head of the Miami eminent domain department of the Florida Department of Transportation, have been in practice together since 1996. They represent nearly all the hotels, office buildings and airline kitchens near Miami International Airport that are being pushed aside to make way for a massive airport expansion project. Both were previously with the eminent domain firm Brigham Moore, as was Ulmer, who was managing partner there in Miami. Ulmer, formerly the mayor of Miami Shores, left that firm eight years ago to go into practice for himself. “I’ve known these guys for several years and respected their abilities and thought we could be more together than we were individually,” says Ulmer, who has been specializing in eminent domain for 18 years. The three lawyers’ practices are all recession-proof and booming, he says. “As long as there’s private property, there’s going to be some agency which will want to take it,” says Ulmer.
