For over 16 years, Ryan has represented technology, media, and design clients. His intellectual property, litigation, and transactional expertise has helped clients market their creations and resolve complex litigation issues. Previously, Ryan was a litigator at Milberg LLP in New York City, a legal consultant to the American Enterprise Institute in Washington D.C., and an adjunct professor at schools like Brooklyn College and University of California, Santa Cruz, where he created and taught a seminar on the effects of intellectual property and anttirust law on entrepreneurship. When he isn't doing the foreging, he authors satirical crime thrillers (six soon to be seven), swims, hikes, and cooks like a wanna-be Italian chef. He currently splits his time between California and New York.
