Tim Ryan has a wealth of experience across a spectrum of complex transactional legal matters, with an emphasis on real estate, energy-related facilities and services, finance, and emerging businesses. After graduating from Yale Law School in 2001, he joined the Dallas, Texas office of Vinson & Elkins as an associate, where his education as a transactional attorney was overseen by some of the most talented lawyers in the industry. He later served as in-house counsel for a national real estate investment fund sponsor, serving as primary counsel for multiple real estate private fund offerings, overseeing the firm’s registration as a securities investment adviser, and representing the firm in real estate joint ventures around the country.

Tim joined WARC as partner in 2011, reuniting with his former Vinson & Elkins colleagues to expand the firm’s geographic footprint into Louisiana. Tim has led the following recent transactions:

  • Louisiana counsel for $235MM acquisition of multiple pipeline systems throughout Louisiana
  • Lead tenant representation for $200MM natural gas fractionation facility in the Mississippi River industrial corridor
  • Lead counsel on an ongoing basis for land acquisitions and mitigation supply contract negotiations on behalf of Louisiana and Texas-based environmental mitigation sponsor
