Ryan has taken an unorthodox career path to advising entrepreneurs on corporate/commercial matters. Before joining Harper Grey, Ryan co-founded a legaltech startup and was a founder and general counsel of the General Partner of a private equity fund which focused on succession planning acquisitions. He draws on these unique experiences in order to provide practical advice at all stages of the business life cycle.
Ryan understands the risks faced by entrepreneurs and investors alike, from startups to mature businesses, and strives to empower clients as they progress through their roadmap (and the numerous pivots along the way). He cares about understanding his clients’ business models and their unique problems.
Whether you are raising funds to hire your first development team, planning to disrupt your industry, or seeking an exit in the coming years, Ryan looks forward to understanding what makes your business tick and how he can help.
Ryan completed his law degree at the University of Alberta and was called to the Alberta Bar in 2017 and the British Columbia Bar in 2020.
