Steve Ryan

An experienced commercial property specialist and SA Law’s Managing Partner


Benefiting from over 30 years in commercial property law, I advise on all aspects of this challenging field. I work across all industries and sectors, with many niche areas of expertise such as healthcare.

My particular forte is guiding clients to commercial success in high value and complex property transactions. I have extensive experience of the opportunities and challenges that can arise during deals, particularly when multiple parties are involved. I also benefit from close contacts throughout the local and national property sector, which can bring extensive advantage to my clients.

As one of the founding partners of SA Law, it’s also worth bearing in mind that I’m a business owner too. That means I have first-hand insight into commercial imperatives and the need for practical and straightforward advice that demystifies the law for strategic leaders.
