Profile
Ryan was called to the Bar in 2018. He joined Chambers after serving pupillage with Mr. Kenneth Lam, Mr. Arthur Luk S.C., Ms. Lisa Remedios, Mr. Tony Ko, and Mr. John McDonnell Q.C. (in London). Ryan is a Hardwicke Scholar at Lincoln’s Inn, and is also a Member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (MCIArb).

Prior to joining the bar, Ryan obtained his LLB (First Class Honours, ranking first in his final year) at the University of Manchester in 2015 and his MPhil in Criminology (First Class with Distinction) as a Manuel Lopez-Rey Scholar at the Faculty of Law, University of Cambridge in 2016. He then obtained his PCLL at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (with UGC Funding/Distinguished Scholarship) in 2017.

He completed the Diploma of International Commercial Arbitration taught by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators during his pupillage year. He served as marshal to HH Judge Waksman Q.C. of the English Crown Court (now of the Queen’s Bench Division of the English High Court) in 2013, the Hon. Kevin Zervos J (now a Justice of Appeal) of the High Court of Hong Kong in 2014, and to Deputy Judge Stephen Lloyd of the Chancery Division of the English High Court in 2018.

Ryan is developing a broad practice in all areas of law, including civil (particularly defamation and chancery), criminal (white-collar and serious crime), matrimonial, and public law (particularly constitutional arguments in crime), as well as in arbitration (particularly jurisdictional challenges and cross-border enforcement of arbitral awards). He has a particular interest in appellate work in all areas of law. In his first case, Ryan appeared as junior counsel before the Court of Final Appeal in a criminal matter.
