Ryan represents investors, asset managers, structuring agents, initial purchasers, placement agents, issuers, lenders, hedge providers, borrowers, private equity firms and other financial institutions in a variety of structured and asset backed financings.

Ryan focuses primarily on the esoteric ABS market, including significant transactions in each of the following asset classes: music royalties; digital infrastructure; whole business and other operating asset securitizations; tax liens; PACE bonds; timeshare ABS; agricultural loans; solar loans (including C&I solar); media and film royalty revenues; oil & gas royalties/receivables; payment processing; and wireless spectrum.

Other financing asset classes in which Ryan has recently been active include wireless towers, data centers, alarm and home security receivables, non-performing mortgage loans, fix-and-flip commercial mortgage loans, and venture-capital loans.

Ryan has also devoted significant energy to potential litigation and restructurings related to structured products (e.g., CMBS, CLOs) and adverse market developments in commercial real estate finance, including with respect to complex hedging and derivatives positions such as CMBX.

Ryan has served as an Adjunct Professor at Cornell Law School, where he co-taught and authored a seminar on Secured Transactions.
