December 2, 2009

The law firm of Miller Canfield announces that Michael H. Traison, a principal in the Chicago office, has been appointed to the board of governors of the State of Israel Bonds for the Midwest region.

At Miller Canfield, Traison focuses his practice on international law, commercial law, commercial litigation and debtor-creditor relations, with particular emphasis on the representation of unsecured creditors, committees, trustees and debtors under Chapter 11 and out-of-court workouts.  He is admitted to practice in Illinois, Michigan and New York.

He received his law degree, magna cum laude, from the Michigan State University College of Law where he was a member of the Law Review, and a M.Ed. and Ph.B. from Wayne State University.

In 1951, Development Corporation for Israel-DCI (better known as "Israel Bonds") was founded by David Ben-Gurion to unite Diaspora Jewry and Israel in an economic partnership to help build the reborn Jewish nation. That partnership has helped fuel virtually every sector of Israel’s economy, transforming Israel into an industrial leader that boasts agricultural independence, cutting-edge technological development, state of the art medical and scientific institutions, a modern infrastructure, and a highly skilled and educated workforce.
