Selman Breitman Bolsters Commercial Transactions Practice

Ryan Alexander Joins Selman Breitman as New Partner and Commercial Transactions Chair

Selman Breitman LLP welcomes Ryan Alexander of Apogee Law Group to its Los Angeles office as a new Partner and Chair of the firm’s Commercial Transactions practice.

With more than 14 years of experience, Ryan will lead the firm’s Commercial Transactions practice assisting clients of all sizes, in a number of industries ranging from automotive, construction, and finance to technology, throughout the business life cycle—from formation and fund-raising to operations and divestiture.

Ryan is adept at handling matters involving capitalization, governance, executive compensation, mergers, acquisitions, regulatory compliance, business restructuring, distribution, intellectual property licensing, and other general commercial transactions, as well as daily employment matters. His impressive score of successes for his clients include leading and completing hundreds of negotiations and transactions relating to securities offerings, financing, various commercial relationships, licensing, entertainment, and real estate.

Uniquely positioned to benefit his clients, Ryan has represented each side on a variety of transactions, making him highly adept at understanding the requirements, limitations, and objectives of each perspective. This makes him keenly aware of the best negotiation strategy in each situation, and allows him to think and act decisively for his clients’ best interests.

Managing Partner Neil Selman stated, "We are really excited to have Ryan join our firm. Being able to attract exceptional lawyers like Ryan is very important to us and we have the added benefit that Ryan will continue the expansion of our transactional and general commercial practices in line with our strategic goal of offering our clients a full array of legal services.”

Ryan earned his J.D. and LL.M. from The John Marshall Law School and his B.S. from Midwestern State University. He is admitted to practice law in California, Illinois, and Texas, and before the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office.
