In a personal interview with Minnesota Lawyer, Steven Ryan discusses what was behind the decision to combine Briggs and Morgan with Taft. When asked what misconceptions people have about working as an attorney, Ryan commented, “I think there’s a misconception that the law is just a business and not a profession anymore. The attorneys I work with take ethical obligations seriously, they mentor those who are new to the profession and they give back to their communities.” To learn more about Ryan and his thoughts on working in the legal profession, read the article here.
Ryan is partner-in-charge in Taft’s Minneapolis office and previously served as the president and managing partner of Briggs and Morgan, P.A. until its combination with Taft on Jan. 1, 2020.

He also plays an instrumental role in managing the firm’s efforts to provide pro bono services to Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity.
