BACKGROUND

Ryan Fisher focuses his practice on commercial litigation and real estate.  He has been an integral part of trial teams for a large white collar jury trial, a complex commercial litigation matter involving real estate worth billions of dollars, and a class action that resulted in a defense jury verdict for KA’s client.  He is currently working on the defense of a high-dollar bad faith insurance case.

Ryan is a 2016 graduate of the University of California, Irvine School of Law.  As a member of the UC Irvine Appellate Litigation Clinic, he argued a case before the Ninth Circuit.  He was an editor of the flagship UC Irvine Law Review and was a founding board member and Staff Editor of the UC Irvine Journal of International, Transnational, and Comparative Law.  Ryan also volunteered in several pro bono programs, including the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Clinic, the Permanency Applications Project, and the Bankruptcy Project, and participated in the Experian/Jones Day Moot Court competition.  He received the Dean’s Award in Real Estate Transactions.

Ryan received his B.S. in Business Administration magna cum laude from the University of Nebraska in Omaha, Nebraska.  He was elected to Beta Gamma Sigma, an honorary society for the top 10% of business students.

While in law school, Ryan clerked for the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office, a boutique firm specializing in employment litigation and intellectual property disputes, and the UC Irvine Appellate Clinic, and completed various trial preparation projects for Keller Rackauckas LLP (now Keller/Anderle LLP).

Ryan actively works to give back to the local legal community.  He sits on the Constitutional Rights Foundation Orange County’s Associate Board of Directors and the Elder Law and Disability Rights (ELDR) Center’s Advisory Board.  He also spends his time with Seed Consulting Group, a volunteer organization that provides pro bono consulting services to local non-profits.
