Ryan joined Ellisons as a Partner in October 2023.
Ryan developed an early interest in Business Law and obtained a First-Class law degree, followed by a First-Class Masters in International Commercial Law in 2010. He went on to work for a top 50 UK Law Firm, provided in-house support to a global technology company and founded and managed his own specialist practice, Cracknell Law, from 2015 to 2023.
Ryan joined Ellisons in October 2023 as a Partner and leads the Firm on Commercial Contracts, Data Protection and Intellectual Property matters.
Ryan is passionate about using Legal Design to make contracts more transparent and accessible and he created the first legally binding comic book T&Cs. In his spare time, Ryan is a keen guitarist, enjoys dog-walking with his young family and is working towards his karate black belt.
Ryan Cracknell was recommended to me when it came to needing assistance with the trademarking process and getting a suite of documents drafted (such as website T&Cs, cookies notice, e-commence terms, etc.). Over the past months I have been in direct contact with Ryan and have been really impressed – he’s been friendly, knowledgeable, responsive and professional – 5* service. Fixed fees were reasonable and there were no hidden surprises.
Ryan Cracknell has been instrumental to the expansion of our business and helped us tailor our terms of business to protect both us and our customers.
Ryan delivers a fantastic cost-effective service which ensures that all of our Commercial Law requirements across the world are managed and he truly understands our business. Time and time again, with only the very necessary degree of input from business management, Ryan has driven negotiations through to conclusions, as opposed to just providing a long list of recommendations. The professional pragmatism exercised saves a significant amount of internal management time.
