Ryan has over 15 years experience counseling clients on the protection, licensing, and enforcement of intellectual property rights, with specific expertise in patent law. While focusing on patent, trademark, Internet and copyright prosecution, counseling and litigation, Ryan also has extensive experience counseling clients on licensing, marketing, distribution, technology and other commercial transactions regarding products and services protectable under international, federal, state or local intellectual property laws.
