Ryan Tinney

Ryan is a litigator that thrives when confronted with complex legal and factual disputes, and prides himself on providing innovative and practical solutions.

He has a keen interest in fraud law and construction matters, and is developing a diverse practice that includes all aspects of insurance and commercial litigation.

He has represented clients with matters before all levels of Court in Ontario, and has trial experience. In particular, Ryan has been involved in successfully securing a Mareva injunction in a fraud matter, the successful resistance of a misnomer motion in a multi-million dollar construction lawsuit, and successfully appealing a trial decision at the Divisional Court on behalf of an automobile insurer. Ryan also has experience representing clients in confidential mediations and arbitrations, both domestic and international.

Outside work, Ryan is a fervent supporter of his hometown Toronto sports teams (in particular the Raptors and Maple Leafs).  Even in the face of perennial disappointment, Ryan can be found cheering at the screen, or in the arena, with his friends and family for every game.

Prior to joining the firm in 2016, Ryan was a summer and articling student at a large national law firm in downtown Toronto, where he gained experience in both litigation and corporate law.
