Michael P. Ryan Appointed to the New York State Bar Association’s Special Advisory Committee on Trusts and Estates Law

February 1, 2012

For decades, the Bennett Commission was synonymous with cutting edge scholarship in advanced issues of Trusts and Estates. Its work was continued by the Legislative Advisory Committee, chaired for twenty years by Judge C. Raymond Radigan. The Commission and the Committee were responsible for drafting the reports that later became the Surrogate’s Court Procedure Act and the Estates Powers and Trusts Law.

The Legislative Advisory Committee’s mandate from the New York State legislature is coming to an end but its work will be continued by a newly formed Special Advisory Committee organized by the New York State Bar Association. Cullen and Dykman LLP is proud to announce that Michael P. Ryan, of the firm’s Trusts and Estates Department, has been selected to join the Special Advisory Committee by Judge  Radigan, Chair of the current Legislative Advisory Committee, and Ilene S. Cooper, Chair of the Bar Association’s Trusts and Estates Section.
