BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

N.Y. Financial Services Department's Wrynn to join law firm


ALBANY, N.Y.—New York State Financial Services Department Deputy Superintendent James J. Wrynn will leave the department for a position as managing director of Goldberg Segalla L.L.P.'s New York office, the department announced Thursday.

Mr. Wrynn, who had served as superintendent of the New York State Department of Insurance prior to its 2011 merger with the New York State Banking Department, will serve as a senior partner in Goldberg Segalla's global insurance services practice, according to a DFS statement.

“Jim was instrumental in ensuring the successful launch of the Department of Financial Services when the former Insurance and Banking departments merged last year to create a single regulator,” Financial Services Superintendent Benjamin Lawsky said in the statement. “Jim's insight and experience were extraordinarily helpful in ensuring a smooth, efficient transition, and I am grateful for all of his efforts.”

Mr. Wrynn plans to leave his position at the DFS on March 2.

In his time with the Financial Services and Insurance departments, Mr. Wrynn worked on a wide range of consumer protection issues and initiatives, including health insurance reforms under new state and federal regulations, according to the DFS statement.

“Serving New Yorkers as part of the Department of Financial Services and earlier as superintendent of insurance was a truly great experience,” Mr. Wrynn said in the statement. “I appreciate the support that I received from (New York) Gov. (Andrew) Cuomo and Superintendent Lawsky. I am certain they will continue to provide the strong leadership needed to provide New Yorkers with effective consumer protection and encourage the growth of robust financial services industries.”
