Attorney C. Ryan Maloney has joined Jimerson Birr as a Partner. He is Florida Bar Board Certified in Construction Law, has practiced law for over 15 years, and has a professional focus on construction and business litigation. His joining Jimerson Birr adds to the firm’s depth of board-certified lawyers, a distinction considered by The Florida Bar to be the highest level of expertise on matters related to specific areas of practice.
Mr. Maloney formerly was a litigation partner at Foley & Lardner, LLP, where he served as Vice Chair of the construction practice group, and as the Jacksonville office litigation department chair. Mr. Maloney brings extensive experience with construction litigation and counseling for owners, contractors, subcontractors and design professionals, as well as trial experience in all types of business disputes. His “high stakes litigation” experience is second to none. He has previously represented the receiver of a national electrical contractor in arbitration concerning the $1.3 billion dollar Utah Data Center constructed by the Army Corps of Engineers for the National Security Agency. He has also represented a Fortune 50 health insurer in the successful defense of multiple bid protests relating to an award of a more than $1 billion contract to provide Medicaid managed care services to the State of Iowa in the state’s largest ever procurement.
“Ryan is an established construction law attorney who knows his way around the courtroom,” said Managing Partner Charles Jimerson. “He knows how to argue for the win. That puts him in good company, because our law firm is packed with board-certified litigators who have a substantial amount of trial experience. Jimerson Birr attorneys deliver results by having deep knowledge of the law affecting the industries we serve, by being the most prepared lawyers in the room, by clearly understanding how to achieve what a client envisions as success, and by fighting relentlessly to make it happen. Ryan has a great reputation as a strong legal mind and I am honored he has chosen to join our firm.”
"Jimerson Birr is renowned in Jacksonville and North Florida for outstanding legal practice in business litigation and construction law," commented Mr. Maloney. "A Florida-based practice is important to me, so this successful and growing firm is the perfect match for expanding my practice. The best part is I have the opportunity to obtain results for clients with many attorneys who I already admire and respect. I’ve fought against the lawyers for many years, and now it is time to fight alongside them.”
Mr. Maloney received his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Florida Levin College of Law, where he graduated magna cum laude and was elected to the Order of the Coif. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in sociology and English literature from Florida State University, where he graduated cum laude. While in law school, Mr. Maloney served as an articles executive for the Journal of Law and Public Policy. Mr. Maloney is from Vero Beach and was admitted to the Florida Bar in 2003.
