Ryan is an innovative attorney who leverages the latest legal technologies to achieve favorable and cost-conscious results for his clients.

Commercial litigation is burdensome on business; however, Ryan's clients move through the process with confidence because he takes the time to listen, define objectives, and provides regular and timely case updates to stakeholders. From basic email to encrypted international messages, Ryan also confidently manages complex eDiscovery and eRetention in both domestic and international litigation across multiple eDiscovery platforms.

When internal business owner disputes arise, he is well-versed in negotiating resolutions to complex, contentious, and often emotional conflicts, as well as advocating for his clients when those disputes end up in court.

Ryan also understands that intellectual property assets are the foundation of a company's value. Ryan protects his client's intellectual property and interests in both collaborative efforts, ranging from multi-state data aggregation for municipal self-insurers to revising end user licensing agreements, and in court when collaboration breaks down.

And, while ordinary litigators may be comfortable in court, administrative agencies play by a different set of rules that often catch litigators flat-footed.  Ryan's experience spans formal administrative hearings as well as working with regulators and clients to reach practical resolutions.

Before coming to Vermont, Ryan practiced in Manhattan at a large national law firm where he gained wide-ranging experience in complex commercial litigation in high-profile cases including private equity disputes, employee stock buybacks, class action defense, as well as prospective litigation strategy, and employment law for clients ranging from large corporations and holding companies to government agencies.
