Ryan M. Dittmar



Ryan’s practice focuses on Mergers and Acquisitions and Corporate Governance. A graduate of Emory University School of Law, Ryan has extensive experience in M&A, especially in the dental industry. Ryan knows the intricacies of both asset and equity deals and has written on the subject of dental private equity transactions. Combining his legal experience with his MBA, Ryan understands the business issues in each transaction and, as a result, can supplement his legal knowledge with business advice.

Before joining Robinson Franzman, Ryan worked at a boutique dental M&A law firm as well as within the legal department of a national telecommunications company, where he assisted in a major network transaction and worked on deals with Amazon and Facebook. The experience gained in those positions allowed Ryan to appreciate the needs of a corporation both inside and out.

Ryan prides himself on connecting with his clients and being accessible. A former Division 1 baseball player, Ryan is collaborative and driven to get the deal done with maximum efficiency and value. In his spare time, he is an avid reader and loves spending time with his wife and their Parsons Russell Terrier named Payton!
