Ryan Manion focuses on all kinds of commercial litigation, including antitrust matters representing direct action plaintiffs, labor and employment issues, breach-of-contract cases, civil rights matters under § 1983, and other matters in both state and federal court. He also leads the firm’s appellate practice, having written appellate briefs to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and the Illinois Appellate Courts. Before joining L&G Law Group, Ryan served as a staff law clerk for the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, where he assisted all the judges of the court by writing orders and opinions in all kinds of cases, including federal criminal and postconviction matters, intellectual property cases, civil rights cases, and others.

Ryan’s experience working for federal judges and litigating cases in federal court distinguishes him from other attorneys. He has worked with judges to evaluate cases, and therefore is able to advise clients on all aspects of the litigation process as well as the nuances of statutory and regulatory schemes in multiple industries. Indeed, Ryan has helped counsel clients to develop new employment policies and how to submit substantive applications for business licenses in Illinois. He also has helped clients reach settlements in matters where litigation may not be in the client’s best interests.

Ryan received his J.D., magna cum laude, from the Indiana University Maurer School of Law, where he was a Notes & Comments Editor for the Indiana Law Journal. Ryan received his B.A. from the University of Richmond.
