Experience
Ryan Kaatz brings over seven years of experience practicing intellectual property law, with a focus on intellectual property law as it relates to information technology. Ryan began his career at the National Arbitration Forum, the largest Internet domain name dispute resolution provider in the United States, eventually as the Manager of the Internet Domain Name Dispute Resolution Program.

Ryan then practiced in the Chicago office of Ladas & Parry LLP, an international intellectual property law firm with over 90 years of experience, featuring offices in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, London and Munich, as the head of the Digital Brands Practice Group, which focuses on online intellectual property matters such as Internet domain name disputes, online copyright disputes, metatag disputes, brand identities and fraud prevention.
