Ryan C. Brown

Senior Attorney


A powerhouse litigator, Ryan C. Brown exhausts every avenue of the law to sensibly resolve commercial disputes for his clients. He represents clients in both litigation and alternative dispute resolution at the state and federal levels. His legal advocacy extends to domestic and international businesses in the energy, construction, distribution and manufacturing sectors.

Commercial Disputes

Ryan has resolved hundreds of cases, including individual suits, mass torts and nationwide class actions involving breach of contract and product liability claims. His practice aims to contain and effectively quell disputes while designing internal processes to address and defuse the triggers that precipitate litigation.

As lead counsel, Ryan has obtained favorable judgments for product manufacturing, transportation, construction, waste management and distribution clients for claims involving contract disputes, property loss and personal injuries, resulting in millions of dollars in savings.

In addition, Ryan has obtained defense verdicts and secured dismissals for a swath of other cases related to allegations of defamation/libel, toxic exposure, premises liability and property loss.

Regulatory Audits

Ryan understands the challenges of liaising with state and federal agencies, particularly when it comes to regulatory concerns. He delivers peace of mind to private and public companies by preparing responses to audit inquiries and shepherding clients through the regulatory oversight process.
