Firm Details

While the Towne, Ryan & Partners, P.C. has only been in existence since December 2009, our experience and reputations in the community were long established prior thereto.  Between the two principals alone, the Firm has nearly 100 years of experience collectively and is able to offer clients skilled legal counsel in a broad range of legal fields covering transactional and litigation matters.

We provide legal services in the areas of: Administrative Law; Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation and Arbitration; Automobile Dealer Representation; Construction Law; Corporate, Commercial and Partnership Law; Criminal Law; Environmental Law; Equine and Gaming Law; Estate Planning, Hospitality and Campground Law; Administration and Litigation; Insurance Defense; Labor and Employment Law; Litigation; Municipal Law; Not-For-Profit Law; Personal Injury Law; Public Housing Law; Real Estate Law; and Vehicle and Traffic Law.

Our team is comprised of 16 attorneys, six paralegals and four additional support staff members.  The depth of our team is designed to bring our clients a full-service experience from customer service to legal services.  Each attorney offers personalized and skilled legal counsel in their designated areas of practice and as we find that legal issues often cross practice area boundaries, we are proud to have a dynamic team to offer our clients the most creative and practical solutions.

The Firm is well positioned to handle cases across a large geographic region.  We have four offices throughout the Capital District in Albany, Burnt Hills, Cobleskill and Saratoga Springs, as well as an additional office to the east in Bennington, Vt.  We have attorneys admitted to practice in New York as well as in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Vermont, and are therefore able to handle cases that cross into these jurisdictions.

At the Firm we pride ourselves on diversity.  Not only do we offer our clients legal counsel in a wide variety of practice areas, but we are also proud to be the largest New York State certified Women Business Enterprise (WBE) law firm in the Upstate New York.  As such, we are able to assist clients in meeting their M/WBE utilization goals while providing quality legal representation.

About Our Clients

Over the course of the last several decades, members of the Firm have worked with a variety of private and public agencies, including a number of towns, cities, villages, counties, school districts, community colleges, planning boards and community action groups in an advisory role.  Not only have we worked closely with such organizations and their respective governing bodies, but also with their various internal departments to assist in dealing with a host of issues in and out of state and federal courts and the Public Employment Relations Board (PERB).  We have strategized to avoid grievances, litigation and PERB filings through negotiations and proper training and various types of preventative strategies.
