Ryan D. Marrone
Ryan’s work primarily consists of complex commercial litigation, which ranges from disputes with business partners, employees, landlords/tenants, insurance carriers, and suppliers to defending business clients from a sweeping range of contractual and tort allegations.
Ryan has experience working at both a plaintiffs’ firm and a defense firm, but he finds himself most comfortable diving into and understanding his commercial clients’ businesses and working to help them through the litigation process. He understands that his clients want to focus on pursuing their business goals. Thus, he prides himself on efficiently working with his clients to develop a deliberate and calculated strategy.
Ryan has experience as lead counsel on appellate, commercial, construction, contract, defamation, insurance, negligence, real estate, premises liability, products liability, professional liability, and subrogation cases. He has successfully represented insurance agents and brokers, real estate brokers, attorneys, car dealerships, contractors, subcontractors, property managers, homeowners’ associations, corporations, LLCs, retailers, suppliers, manufacturers, and insurance companies.
Ryan graduated from Michigan State University College of Law magna cum laude and is a devoted Spartan fan. While in law school, he clerked for the Department of Justice and worked on high-value complex environmental litigation. He earned his business degree from Saginaw Valley State University (in Michigan) summa cum laude. He is an avid hockey player and fan.
