The San Diego Daily Transcript has named Latham partner Jake Ryan among its 50 Influential Business Leaders in San Diego for 2019 in recognition of his thriving litigation practice and career accomplishments.

His published profile noted how Ryan’s experience as a US Navy pilot and federal prosecutor helped develop skills he currently applies in his practice – which focuses on intellectual property litigation, white collar criminal defense and government investigations, and other complex business litigation. He was also recognized for helping to build Latham’s litigation capabilities through his current role as Global Co-Chair of the firm’s Complex Commercial Litigation Practice and his previous service as local Chair of the Litigation & Trial Department in San Diego.

Ryan’s recent practice highlights cited by the Daily Transcript include his representation of innovative local life sciences companies in complex litigation involving antitrust, breach of contract, and patent licensing claims.

"The best thing about working at Latham is working with incredibly smart people, both at the firm and with our clients,” Ryan said. “I've had the opportunity to work with biotech companies and the most brilliant scientists you'd ever want to meet, who are making incredible discoveries and getting valuable drugs to market."
