ST. LOUIS - Ryan J. McCarty has joined Gallop, Johnson & Neuman, L.C. as an associate in the Business Litigation Department as the firm's business litigation services continue to expand.

He has defended numerous banking institutions facing claims brought under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Telephone Consumer Protection Act, Truth in Lending Act, and the related common law claims associated with these actions. McCarty also has significant experience in product liability suits, class actions, commercial transactions, landlord-tenant, and general commercial litigation.
Glenn Davis, chair of the litigation practice, remarked: "We welcome Ryan to our growing, sophisticated team of trial lawyers. Ryan is an experienced and energetic lawyer with great large firm experience we can offer as part of our commitment to value for our clients. In an era of reductions for many firms, we are selectively supplementing our value services platform with key additions like Ryan."

Its attorneys serve as national and regional counsel for U.S. and multi-national corporations in corporate, product liability, mass tort and other forms of litigation.
