Ryan P. Phair

Ryan is Co-chair of the firm’s Antitrust and Consumer Protection practice. He is an experienced trial lawyer and appellate advocate whose practice focuses on complex civil, criminal and international litigation; internal, congressional and grand jury investigations; and public policy, strategic counseling, and crisis communications.

Ryan has represented corporate and individual clients, both as plaintiffs and defendants, in a broad spectrum of complex litigation at the trial and appellate levels, including antitrust, securities, RICO, ERISA, fraud, public nuisance, and other types of class and individual actions. On behalf of plaintiffs, Ryan has successfully recovered over $1 billion for his clients, making him one of a few select lawyers to have ever achieved this feat. On behalf of defendants, Ryan has an equally remarkable track record of success spanning dozens of complex cases, investigations, and enforcement actions.

Outside of the litigation context, Ryan has represented and advised clients regarding interactions with numerous executive departments, congressional committees, and international organizations on a wide variety of issues, including the regulation of government-sponsored entities; the operation of financial markets during times of economic turmoil; and the war in Iraq and other national security matters.

Ryan is also a key member of the firm’s interdisciplinary Retail Industry Practice Group and works extensively with myriad retailers, often on a daily basis as national coordinating counsel, to address litigation risks and related issues, including antitrust and competition; data privacy and security; product labeling and liability; advertising, marketing, and pricing practices; and statutory and consumer class actions.
