PROFILE

Ryan accepts briefs to appear and advise in public and administrative law, criminal and quasi-criminal law, and commercial law matters. Ryan has a particular interest in the intersection between public law and the criminal justice system. 

Prior to coming to the Bar, Ryan developed a strong advisory and litigation practice as a solicitor acting for predominantly Commonwealth and State Government departments and bodies.

Ryan commenced his career at Ashurst. He later worked as a Senior Solicitor in the Litigation and Dispute Resolution Branch of the Victorian Government Solicitor's Office and as a Senior Associate in private practice. He also served as a Researcher to the judges of the Victorian Court of Appeal.

As a solicitor, Ryan’s experience included advice and litigation in relation to:

  • statutory interpretation;
  • administrative decision-making processes and the review of administrative decisions;
  • privacy and the disclosure of sensitive information;
  • the operation of, and applications under, the Serious Offenders Act 2018 and the Crimes (Mental Impairment and Unfitness to be Tried) Act 1997; and 
  • regulatory prosecutions.

Ryan is also available to assist to develop legal policy and legislation. He was previously employed at the Victorian Department of Justice and Regulation, where he developed legislative reform and provided legal and policy advice to the Department and the Attorney-General.

Ryan holds a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Arts, both with first class honours, from Monash University. He graduated with the Supreme Court Exhibition Prize and a number of subject prizes and scholarships. He was on the Monash University Law Review editorial committee, and has published in Australian and international academic journals.
