About me

My name is Paul Ryan. I work in the Business and Commercial Services of Wisewould Mahony with a focus on liquor, gaming and hospitality law. I also practice in the sports law area.

I joined Wisewould Mahony after merging Ryan Commercial Lawyers with the firm on 1 July 2019.

My experience of Wisewould Mahony “from the outside” and my expectations regarding working there have been confirmed since joining the firm. Wisewould Mahony has a fantastic work environment with a down to earth approach to providing the best possible service to clients whilst at all times bearing in mind commercial imperatives.

I see the most important attributes of being a lawyer as being proactive, sympathetic to client needs and expectations and communicating clearly.

Outside work, I follow Carlton Football Club (the giant is awakening!) and St Kilda Cricket Club (where I am President) and support the Sacred Heart Mission in St Kilda.

I also spend as much time as possible with my wife, Rowena, and daughters, Julia and Georgia, and our dogs, Max and Paddy.

In my spare time, I endeavour to go for runs – if my body holds up….
