Williams Parker, one of the oldest law firms in the Sarasota-Manatee area, is expanding its management committee with the addition of its attorney and partner Patrick Ryskamp, the firm announced in a statement.
Ryskamp will join attorneys Michael Wilson, the firm president, and John Moore, firm treasurer, on the management committee, the law firm says.
Ryskamp, now the member at-large on the committee, joined Williams Parker after graduating Stetson University College of Law. He was made partner in 2004, the firm says.
Ryskamp has focused on commercial and residential real estate, “representing developers and investors involved in the development of residential subdivisions and condominiums and commercial and industrial projects, including conversions, hotel, restaurant and apartment acquisitions, and a wide range of residential transactions,” the firm says.
Ryskamp replaces Rose-Anne Frano, who was on the committee for six years. She will now lead other firm initiatives, according to Williams Parker.
Founded in 1925, Williams Parker specializes in trusts and estates, real estate, corporate matters, mergers and acquisitions, taxes, employment, probate and civil litigation, health care, and intellectual property. The firm is a member of Ally Law, an international alliance of law firms with a membership of 70 firms that include more than 2,800 lawyers in 100 business centers throughout 45 countries, the firm says.
