Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

Ryan J. Levan is a complex commercial litigator with deep experience litigating high-stakes matters. He began his career as an associate in the New York office of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP. To date, Ryan has litigated dozens of cases in federal and state courts for Fortune 500 companies, multinationals, financial services firms, large private corporations, and control personnel. His practice focuses on M&A litigation, securities and commodities investigations, antitrust and securities class actions, and commercial real estate disputes.
Ryan also brings valuable business experience to bear in his representations, having previously founded and operated a start-up company—including through the COVID-19 Pandemic. Thus, in addition to his insights from years of high-stakes litigation, his firsthand knowledge of business, finance, accounting, and operations allows him to analyze complex matters through the eyes of the business owner and control personnel.

Ryan is deeply committed to pro bono work. He has represented New York-based charitable, religious, and scholastic organizations, and has assisted local businesses in navigating the existential challenges posed by COVID-19. Ryan has also helped secure legal immigration status for more than a dozen low-income women and children from Central America, for which he was recognized with Her Justice’s Commitment to Justice Award. Ryan serves on the board of the Camp Shohola Scholarship Fund, a non-profit dedicated to providing access to summer camp for boys from low-income families.

Ryan holds a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania, magna cum laude, and a J.D. from Columbia Law School, with honors. While at Columbia, he served as a summer law clerk to The Honorable Judge John R. Fisher of the D.C. Court of Appeals, was an articles editor for the Columbia Journal of Law & Social Problems and was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar.
