Ryan is a British National from Gibraltar. Ryan first became inspired to pursue a career in law through his studies of English and American Literature (BA) at the University of Kent between 2015-2019, whereby he came across many different examples of the portrayal of lawyers through different literary texts such as the works of Charles Dickens.
Ryan gained his first experience of a career in law with Hassans International Law Firm in Gibraltar during a two week internship in 2020. Here, Ryan developed his skills of analysis, attention to detail, case preparation/development and advocacy, all of which have played a vital part in his current role.
Ryan pursued the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) from 2019 onwards. Due to the fast pace nature of the course, Ryan learnt the importance of effective time management and developing the ability to handle large workloads in a short period of time. Upon finishing his final exams, he successfully applied to Westkin Associates and has began working under senior associate Lizama Thahir as her legal assistant.
