Ryan Spence

Senior Associate

Ryan Spence
Practice Group

A senior associate in our International Debt Capital Markets practice, Ryan primarily advises corporate trustees and agency services providers, guiding them through all stages of a transaction's life cycle.

Ryan spent six months on secondment to BNY Mellon's corporate trust legal team in London, an experience that contributed to his deep understanding of the issues that keep trustees awake at night.

Having spent time in our Singapore office as a trainee, Ryan returned to Singapore in 2014 and has carved out a niche in advising trustees on liability management issues and distressed debt situations. He has developed a reputation among clients as a trusted adviser, who employs a commercial and pragmatic approach to representing his clients.
