Ryan Perdue joined Fernelius Simon PLLC in 2010. Previously, Ryan was a shareholder at a well-respected litigation boutique. He has extensive litigation experience practicing before state and federal courts and administrative tribunals and has helped his clients obtain a number of notable results, including:
- Successfully represented an international energy company in connection with an alleged release of toxic materials, resulting in a favorable defense verdict after a one-month trial.
- Successfully defended a multinational energy company in a five-week jury trial in federal court in which the plaintiffs sought a quarter of a billion dollars in damages, but were only awarded a few thousand.
- Successfully defended a wrongful-death lawsuit on behalf of an oilfield-equipment manufacturer arising out of an explosion at a fracing site in South Texas. The case settled prior to trial for a fraction of the client’s potential exposure.
- Represented a Fortune 500 petrochemical-terminal operator in multiple personal-injury lawsuits arising from transportation accidents.
- Defended an international wiring-device company in a products-liability lawsuit related to a catastrophic residential fire, resulting in a favorable settlement for the client.
- Successfully represented an international oil and gas company in connection with a refinery explosion, resulting in favorable settlements of multiple personal-injury claims.
- Represented a drilling company in connection with a construction-contract dispute involving directional drilling in South Texas; litigation and injunctive proceedings resulted in a quick settlement.
- Successfully represented a leading pipeline-transportation company in an arbitration dispute involving an alleged breach of contract.
Currently, Ryan’s practice focuses on personal-injury, catastrophic-incident and complex commercial litigation, as well as eDiscovery matters.
