As a partner with JSS Barristers, Ryan’s skills as a litigator are a valuable asset in complex commercial litigation files, as well as non-medical professional negligence and administrative law matters. He has successfully represented clients at all levels of courts in Alberta and in numerous arbitrations. 

Ryan routinely acts for large corporations in complex commercial disputes, such as energy and transportation companies and an international engineering services firm. He has acted in a variety of disputes ranging from breach of contract and debt claims to high-stakes injunctions.

In professional negligence claims, Ryan regularly acts as defence counsel in significant claims against lawyers, from time to time involving unique issues in relation to privilege. 

In administrative law, Ryan acts for the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Alberta in judicial reviews, and he also acts for individuals and companies seeking judicial review of administrative decisions.

Ryan graduated from law school at the University of Saskatchewan, on the dean’s list for academic excellence. In law school, he competed in the Gale Cup criminal-constitutional moot and he studied abroad for a semester at Bond University on the Gold Coast of Australia.
