FBFK Attorney Ryan Marrone Named to D Magazine’s 2024 “Best Lawyers Under 40” List for Third Consecutive Year

DALLAS (Jan. 10, 2024) – For the third consecutive year, Ryan Marrone, an experienced commercial litigator with FBFK, has been selected to D Magazine’s “Best Lawyers Under 40” list. The annual list showcases young attorneys “of the highest caliber” from across North Texas.

The 2024 “Best Lawyers Under 40” list was determined through a peer review and voting process evaluating thousands of submitted ballots, followed by a rigorous analysis by an independent panel of distinguished attorneys to compile the final list. Selected attorneys are featured in the January 2024 issue of D Magazine.

“Time and time again, Ryan has demonstrated the ability to take a strategic, long view of a client matter, while also responding efficiently and effectively to all of the short-term issues that arise with litigation,” said Rachael Smiley, Chair of FBFK’s Litigation Group. “He is a consummate problem-solver – the quintessential quality of a great litigator – and his clients consistently note their appreciation of what he is able to accomplish for them.”

Marrone was also selected as “One to Watch” by Best Lawyers in America® for Commercial Litigation (2023, 2024), to “Texas Rising Stars” list by Super Lawyers (2021, 2022, 2023) and currently serves as Chair of the Collin County Bar Association Young Lawyers Section and Chair of the FBFK Mentorship Program.

Marrone represents clients in complex disputes and regularly opposes Am Law 100 firms. He has experience with appeals, business partner disputes, contract disputes, patent litigation, trademark disputes, copyright disputes, trade secret disputes, employment litigation, insurance litigation, products liability, and bankruptcy (for creditors and landlords).
