Bryan represents companies that have attracted the attention of State Attorneys General (AG), the Federal Trade Commission, and other government investigators, collaborating both with his clients and with investigators to reach creative solutions to novel challenges. He has particular experience in navigating ground-breaking, multi-state investigations in new and/or disrupted industries. Bryan also has significant experience handling complex civil litigation brought by government investigators and private plaintiffs.

Bryan’s clients range from established Fortune 100 companies, to disruptors, to companies on the rise in the finance, technology, and telecommunications, nutrition/dietary supplements, hospitality, direct selling, gaming (including fantasy sports and gambling), sectors, among others.

At the outset of a representation, Bryan works with the client to gain a full understanding of its business and gathers all relevant facts. He then melds those facts with the points of interest for the AG to develop a strategy designed to educate the AG’s office on the client’s business, explain how that business aligns with the existing regulatory framework, and/or advocate for adjustments to the regulatory framework to advance his client’s interests.

He regularly assists clients involved in visible and high-stakes matters and advises them in inquiries and investigations initiated by State AGs in virtually every state addressing a host of issues including consumer protection, data privacy and security (including data breach notification laws), labor and employment, antitrust, environmental (including hazardous waste disposal), and gaming. Drawing on this broad range of experience, Bryan is able to efficiently and effectively manage investigations in a variety of industries. Bryan’s goal is to minimize his clients’ costs and risk exposure, and to reach resolution on the most favorable terms possible. Where settlement is required, Bryan aims for final agreements that are clear, narrowly tailored, and non-punitive.

In addition to advising major, high profile companies in investigations, litigation, and other forms of negotiations, Bryan has extensive experience advising clients on proactive compliance with statutes and regulations. Bryan has worked with a number of companies in the direct selling, telecommunications, gaming, and clean energy sectors to proactively review their business practices to conform with standards designed to comply with state consumer protection or mini-FTC Acts. Given the growing prevalence of compliance obligations accompanying orders and settlements, Bryan also assists clients after a resolution has been reached. He guides them through the stipulated compliance requirements and helps implement remedial measures that ensure future business practices meet the demands of state and federal authorities.

Bryan donates his time to the Washington Legal Committee for the Homeless and to KIND (Kids in Need of Defense). He began his career as a law clerk for Magistrate Judge Jillyn K. Schulze of the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, and as a law student Bryan studied comparative business law at the Central University of Finance and Economics in Beijing, China.
