Associate Solicitor
» Back To Department

Ryan Postlethwaite is an Associate Solicitor, specialising in Occupier’s and Public Liability. Ryan joined the firm’s New Client Team in August 2013 and was quickly promoted to the role of Litigation Executive in November 2013, before being offered a training contract in September 2014. Working with Partner Sarah Mawdsley, Ryan deals with a wide variety of claims regarding accidents on private and public property.

When asked about his role at Express Solicitors, Ryan said: “I would say the best thing about my job is knowing that I make a difference. My clients have often suffered debilitating injuries through no fault of their own, and being able to help them to claim the compensation they deserve is extremely rewarding. I have an extremely empathetic approach with my clients and I try hard to understand and engage with them. In my mind, I take myself out of the office and into the shoes of my clients to try to understand how I could best help them in their individual circumstances.”

Prior to joining Express Solicitors, Ryan gained a BSc degree in Pharmacology and an MSc in Biomedical and Forensic Science, as well as an LLB in Law, all from the University of Manchester. He finished his LPC from BPP University in July 2013 where he received a distinction.

Out of the office, Ryan’s main passion is cycling, both on the road and mountains. He regularly takes part in ‘Sportive’ events which involves cycling over 100 miles in one day, with his longest totalling 135 miles. Fittingly, Ryan’s favourite quote comes from Albert Einstein who said: “Life is like riding a bicycle. In order to keep your balance, you must keep moving.”

Ryan’s other hobby also lies in the world of sport, as he works for the UK anti-doping agency who are responsible for conducting drug tests on athletes. In 2012, Ryan worked at the London 2012 Olympic Stadium and was involved with the testing procedures, and has also been selected to be on the anti-doping team for the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
