Partner Profile: Warwick Ryan

Every week we ask a law firm partner a series of rapid-fire questions about their career. This week: Swaab Attorneys' Warwick Ryan.

Which firm are you with?

Swaab Attorneys.

When did you join that firm?

February 2010.

When were you made a partner of that firm?

February 2010.

Which firm were you at most recently prior to this?

Central Coast Business Lawyers.

What practice group are you with?

Employment law.

What has been the most significant change to your practice area during your career?

The proliferation of legislation in employment and workplace relations law (often duplicating existing laws) creating a forest of regulation.

What has been a major career highlight for you?

I really enjoy seeing small business clients growing steadily, and overcoming some of the legislative challenges they face, into larger and more successful enterprises.

What do you like about being a lawyer?

To me it’s being able to solve problems for my clients that enable them to move forward with their lives and continue to run successful businesses. I think it’s so important to be a part of the solution for your clients and giving all you’ve got to help them reach their desired outcomes.

What do you find challenging?

I find it challenging explaining to my clients, who are great business people, how challenging legislation can be and how it can potentially hinder their capacity to plan and govern their businesses.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

I enjoy spending time with family and friends and am a big sports fan, both participating and watching. Outside of the blokey stuff, I enjoy going to the theatre, history and philosophy.
