Goldberg Named to LIBN’s 40 Under 40January 7, 2016 |
Rivkin Radler associate, Ryan Goldberg, has been named among Long Island Business News’ Rising Stars Under 40. The honor recognizes outstanding members of the business community who are under the age of 40 and have already begun to distinguish themselves professionally.
As a member of the Insurance Fraud Practice Group, Ryan has helped insurers achieve multi-million dollar judgments and settlements in fraud cases, and has helped develop case law that is used to combat insurance fraud.
Ryan has particular experience fighting fraud in the healthcare and automobile industries. He represents national and regional insurers in actions to recover payments to physicians, medical clinics, attorneys, public adjusters, and others as part of complex, large-scale insurance fraud and kickback schemes. Many of Ryan’s cases are cited as legal authority supporting the use of civil RICO to combat insurance fraud. He counsels automobile, property, and life insurers on claims-handling practices and investigation techniques, and works with them to develop fraud prevention, detection, and recovery plans.
Ryan is a member of the Board of Directors of Harbor Child Care, a not-for-profit day care organization, which serves approximately 1,000 children and families across its six centers in Nassau County. Since its founding more than 40 years ago, the organization’s mission is to provide a high level of child care and service, particularly to children in underprivileged communities. As a board member, current chair of the Governance and Nominating Committee, and having served as the co-chair of the fundraising and development committee, Ryan has organized, ran and participated in various events which have raised in excess of six-figures for the organization and has allowed the organization to provide numerous “scholarships” for children who otherwise would not be able to attend day care.
Ryan is a member of Rivkin Radler’s pro-bono team. He represents indigent clients in landlord-tenant proceedings in Nassau County in conjunction with Nassau/Suffolk Law Services and the Nassau County Bar Association. The team was named pro bono firm of the year by the Nassau Bar for their efforts on behalf of the poor.
