Ryan is a problem-solving litigator who builds strategies around his clients’ goals and relentlessly and creatively pursues them. He primarily represents businesses in commercial real estate, land use, energy and construction disputes. His experience runs the gamut of real estate and construction—from helping clients obtain the permits needed to start a new development, to defending owners and contractors in construction disputes, to representing landowners after a property is developed. He also frequently represents private businesses in appeals, insurance disputes, and against state and local governments when his clients have been denied their right to due process and equal protection of the law.
Ryan has the experience to get results. Recognized for his courtroom experience, Ryan has won at trial and through successful motions, argued appeals, and has resolved difficult disputes through complex settlements and in mediation.
Clients know that Ryan has their best interests in mind not only in the courtroom, but also in managing their legal spending. Ryan is certified in Legal Project Management (LPM), and uses LPM tools such as Alternative Fee Arrangements and litigation budgets to make litigation costs more predictable and transparent.
