Cullen and Dykman Welcomes Two New Attorneys into the Partnership From its Banking and Energy, Renewables, and Utilities Practices

January 1, 2022

Garden City and New York City - Cullen and Dykman LLP is pleased to welcome Wendy Forrest and Terrence Regan into its partnership effective January 1, 2022.

Wendy has over 20 years of experience as a banking and real estate attorney and has been with Cullen and Dykman for 11 years in its Garden City Banking practice.  She concentrates her practice on commercial financing, acquisitions, sales, leasing, and real estate development, and routinely counsels lenders in connection with secured and unsecured financings throughout the United States. Wendy’s representation of firm clients extends to large commercial lenders, developers, as well as landlords, and tenants. 

Terrence has served as an associate in the Wall Street Energy, Renewables, and Utilities practice since 2013. In his practice, Terrence advises and represents clients on matters related to energy and utility regulation, along with counseling his clients on broader general corporate matters. Terrence has handled major rate cases for electric and gas utility companies before the New York State Public Service Commission and the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, and he counsels those same utilities and retail supply companies in various industry proceedings before state regulatory commissions.

Christopher H. Palmer, Managing Partner of Cullen and Dykman, stated that “We are thrilled and honored to welcome both Wendy and Terrence into the partnership ranks at Cullen and Dykman. Wendy is a highly regarded attorney in the commercial lending field, as she has handled thousands of complex loans and credit facilities, as well as acquisitions and sales of commercial properties for her clients. Terrence’s acumen in the fields of energy and utility regulatory practice is well-renown in the industry; his adept handling of rate cases and various regulatory matters before state and local commissions has resulted in numerous positive results for his clients. Their addition to the firm’s partnership will no doubt boost the continued growth of their respective groups.”
