A 2004 McKinsey study showed that a significant proportion of M&A deals fail to achieve projected synergies, and further noted that “most of the shareholder value created is likely to go not to the buyer but to the seller. Indeed, on average, the buyer pays the seller all of the value generated by a merger.” If you’re the seller, that’s fantastic news; if you’re the buyer, not so much. As a business lawyer, my role in the transaction is to keep you on the right side of these sometimes-harsh truths.

Dealmaking is exciting! It’s fun! I get it, I’ve been there. But the best corporate attorneys have an unflinching focus not only on closing and getting the deal done, but also on the “why” of the deal, based on a deep understanding of your business. This is my goal – understand why the deal makes sense to your business and your industry, and then get it done.

Or perhaps your business is growing at breakneck pace and you need help with unfamiliar agreements – contracts you haven’t seen before; vendors you haven’t dealt with before; financial commitments with intimidatingly-large numbers; bureaucracy that has become unwieldy; or any of the other growing pains that small businesses experience as they grow into not-so-small businesses. I’ve seen them before, and I can help.

Perhaps you have a big investor lined up (or you are about to pitch a big investor) and need some insight into what to ask for, how to ask for it, how it will change your business, and how to protect yourself. You need a corporate attorney who has been on both sides of that conversation to steer the discussion; I’ve been there and I can help.

Or, perhaps it is time for you to “cash out” – you had your idea and you’ve put in the years of blood, sweat, and tears to make it a reality. Now you’re retiring or you’ve simply decided that that offer you were handed is too good to pass up. How can you make sure that the two hundred-page document you’re about to sign won’t allow the other party to take advantage of you? (it happens, and it happens frequently). In my years of practice as a corporate attorney, I’ve seen many such agreements, in a dozen-plus different industries. I can guide you through the potentially unfamiliar process.

Why Choose Ryan As Your Business Attorney


Excellent Track Record

If you are a startup navigating legal waters for the first time or a small business… If you are an established business looking for a high-quality corporate lawyer… If you are an individual seeking to protect yourself…

If this is “not your first rodeo” and you don’t need hand-holding, you just need a seasoned deal-closer… If your family business is looking for guidance on how to expand or break new ground…


Fee Transparency

Legal work can be expensive, and nobody likes a surprise bill. Having been in-house General Counsel, I have been in that boat, too. I can’t cover all your legal needs for free, but I can help you think about which expenses make sense and which expenses don’t… before we start the clock.

Unlike some of the larger and older law firms, I can also help with some unique and tailored alternative fee arrangements.


Personal Attention

My philosophy is simple. I believe that when you hire an attorney, that attorney should handle your issue.

Therefore, when you hire me, I will handle your issue. When you call my office, you will talk to me (unless I am meeting with another client). When you have questions, I will be the one answering them (if I can).
