Ryan Triplette

Founder, Canary Global Strategic

Ryan Triplette has spent the majority of her professional career seeking to understand the policy implications of some of the most complex issues - with a focus on intellectual property, security, and competition matters - facing businesses today.  She founded Canary Global Strategic after deciding to relocate to Europe, seeking to combine the expertise obtained working with early stage and mature companies with expanding relationships across the European professional community, to provide invaluable resource for business interests seeking to engage policymakers on a range of issues of international import.

Prior to founding Canary, Ryan was a Principal at the Franklin Square Group, a bipartisan boutique firm based in Washington, DC specializing in technology issues.  While at the Franklin Square Group, she advised some of the most innovative technology companies in the world as they entered new and generally regulatory heavy markets. 

Ryan also previously served as Director of Government Relations for the Intel Corporation. During her tenure at Intel, she handled the strategic legislative and political engagement of Republican offices and members in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. In this capacity, she served as an advocate on a wide range of issues including: competition policy, cybersecurity, immigration, intellectual property, privacy, tax, telecom, and trade. 

Before joining the private sector, Ryan served on the Senate Judiciary Committee for six years as Counsel and then Chief Intellectual Property Counsel for the Full Committee under the Republican Leadership of Senators Hatch (R-UT) and Specter (PA), respectively. While on the committee, she worked on intellectual property and civil law reform legislation, the Supreme Court nominations of Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Samuel Alito, and the passage of nearly a dozen bills into law. 

The culmination of these experiences contribute significantly to her in depth knowledge of how to effectively navigate the legislative and political processes.  

Ryan is a member of the Virginia State Bar and holds a J.D. from University of Richmond School of Law and B.A. in Philosophy and Communication Studies from Vanderbilt University. 

In her personal time, she sits on the board of several organizations devoted to mentoring individuals interested in the intersection of law and politics.
