Ryan is a partner at Roper Greyell where he provides strategic advice and representation to public and private sector clients in all areas of labour, employment and human rights law.

He assists employers in managing employee and labour-related risk through advice and consultation on matters such as harassment, absenteeism, health and safety and the drafting and interpretation of workplace policies and employment contracts. He also helps clients navigate through various litigation processes, including at the courts, labour arbitrations, labour boards, human rights tribunals, WorkSafeBC, and other administrative tribunals. Ryan represents clients as lead spokesperson at the bargaining table and as counsel at interest arbitrations.

Before joining Roper Greyell, Ryan worked in a variety of industries, and was a BC forest firefighter, ski guide, tree feller and construction worker. Working in these diverse roles gave him a broad perspective of the many challenges that can arise in the workplace, and continues to provide Ryan with a foundation of practical, real world experience that guides his practice.

Away from the office, Ryan will often be found pursuing his love for adventure and the outdoors, particularly on his skis or mountain bike.
