TOP Canadian telecommunications lawyer Michael Ryan has joined the London office of international law firm Coudert Brothers.
Ryan, who worked as vice-president of law and general counsel at Toronto's Unitel Communications, started work in the firm's global telecommunications practice last month.
He will specialise in advising on telecommunications regulation, competition, privatisation and liberalisation issues, and communications-related corporate transactions.
Ryan was Unitel's chief counsel in the regulatory and court proceedings which led to major changes in telecommunications competition law in Canada. He also worked on the company's entry into the market as a carrier.
Ryan says he left the post to join Couderts because "I was attracted by the opportunity to apply my telecomms expertise to a broader range of issues".
