About
Ryan’s legal career started on Wall Street, at the global law firm Morrison & Foerster, where he helped companies with their IPOs. He then joined the Silicon Valley powerhouse Orrick to focus on earlier-stage companies.

After two years as a non-lawyer at a technology startup, Ryan founded Ashbury Legal to apply the human-centered design skills he learned as an entrepreneur to the often-outdated practice of law.

"It is rare to find a law firm that has both the knowledge and the personality to suit the rapidly-evolving needs of a startup. Ashbury has worked with us on everything from the small and mundane through the acquisition of our company. I would recommend Ashbury Legal to any startup looking for a firm that gets it."
