In his insurance-coverage practice, Bryan has broad experience helping business policyholders secure the benefits, protection, and dollars their insurance policies are meant to provide.

Before joining Maslon, Bryan served as judicial clerk to both the Honorable David Hansen at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and the Honorable David Minge of the Minnesota Court of Appeals, and he was the chair of the litigation group of a large private law firm.
