“The rare combination of experience in private practice and in the enforcement divisions of both the SEC and FINRA will make Russ a trusted counselor and invaluable resource for our clients,” said Wick Sollers of King & Spalding. “Russ is a nationally-recognized securities lawyer and thought leader with more than 25 years of regulatory, defense and senior management experience. We are delighted that our good friend is returning to the firm and are excited to work with him again.”

From 2004 to 2015, Ryan was a member of the firm’s Special Matters team, which he joined after nearly ten years in positions in the SEC’s Division of Enforcement.

“Returning to King & Spalding was a logical next step when I decided to return to private practice,” said Ryan. “King & Spalding has a well-earned reputation for sending lawyers into public service and welcoming them back and for being one of the leading government investigations practices in the world. I look forward to working with my former and new colleagues on sophisticated enforcement matters.”

Ryan received his J.D. from St. John’s University School of Law and his undergraduate degree from Boston College.
