The Commercial Division Committee acts as liaison between
the bar and the Commercial Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New
York. It promotes communication between the bench and the bar concerning
the Commercial Division, and has helped shape the development of the Commercial
Division since its inception in New York and Monroe Counties, and subsequent
expansion to other counties throughout the State. The Committee supports
the Section’s efforts to review and comment on new rules of practice in the
Commercial Division statewide, and in the various Commercial Division
venues. The Committee acts as a forum that assists the Commercial
Division in the fulfillment of its mission, and promptly addresses any issue
raised by the Commercial Division justices, Court administrators, the bar, or
the business community that affects practice in the Commercial Division.
The Committee accomplishes its mission by recruiting members of the bar from
across the State who practice in the Commercial Division, regularly meeting
with Commercial Division justices and communicating about important issues
relating to practice in the Commercial Division.
The Commercial Division Committee is co-chaired by Teresa M. Bennett, Menter, Rudin & Trivelpiece, P.C., Syracuse, Mark A. Berman, Ganfer & Shore LLP, New York City and Matthew R. Maron, The Trump Organization, New York City.
