Ryan, a Partner in the Washington, DC office of Buckley Sandler, advises consumer financial services companies on a variety of regulatory, licensing, compliance, and transactional matters, including federal and state compliance requirements, Secure and Fair Enforcement Act compliance, Federal Housing Administration compliance, and the risks associated with the False Claims Act and Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act
