Ted Crysler: Navigating the Legal Tech Landscape 


In an era where technology permeates every facet of our lives, the legal landscape has had to evolve to keep pace with the rapid advancements in the tech sector. Enter the realm of technology law, a dynamic field where legal professionals grapple with the intricate intersection of law and innovation. ProcureHub is proud to introduce Ted Crysler from Ted Crysler Professional Corporation. Ted has over 25 years of experience, and his journey in this field has been shaped by diverse experiences, from working in large firms to spearheading legal aspects for a telecommunications giant like Rogers Communications.

From data privacy and intellectual property to contracts governing cutting-edge technologies, technology lawyers are at the forefront of ensuring legal frameworks adapt to the ever-changing digital landscape. We recently asked Ted to tell us more about his entrepreneurial journey and do a deeper exploration into the nuances of technology law, where legal expertise meets the challenges and opportunities presented by the fast-paced world of technology. This article showcases some of the highlights and insights.  

Could you share some key milestones or significant experiences that have shaped your professional journey? 

“My foray into technology law began with a desire to practice international law. The initial stages of my career led me to a firm with a global focus, albeit heavily geared towards information technology. This marked the turning point that propelled me into the realm of IT law, where I discovered a profound enjoyment in the dynamic nature of the work and the diverse array of projects. Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of working closely with innovative entrepreneurs, navigating the legal intricacies of the tech sector.” 

What advice would you give to someone who is aspiring to pursue becoming an entrepreneur 

“For those aspiring to venture into entrepreneurship, I offer a crucial piece of advice: ensure it is the right fit for you. Entrepreneurship demands a willingness to embrace uncertainty and take on risks. If you seek a comfortable job with a reliable paycheque, entrepreneurship may not align with your expectations. Understanding your own attitude towards risk-taking and managing your time effectively are paramount in this journey of self-control and risk.” 

Can you share the most valuable lesson you learned as an entrepreneur? 

“One of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned as an entrepreneur is the importance of collaborating with like-minded individuals. Successful collaboration hinges on partnering with others who share an entrepreneurial spirit. Believing in yourself and effectively conveying your vision are essential, especially when constantly seeking new clients and selling your services.” 

What are some of the biggest challenges you have faced being an entrepreneur and how did you overcome them? 

“Undoubtedly, the entrepreneurial journey is not without challenges. Getting started is a significant hurdle, requiring meticulous planning and patience. Establishing a business involves a myriad of tasks, and methodically working through a checklist has proven to be an effective approach for me. Additionally, adapting to the unpredictability of work influx is crucial. The feast-or-famine scenario is a reality in entrepreneurship, necessitating resilience and effective time management. Clear communication with clients remains critical in managing expectations and ensuring a successful partnership.” 

To conclude, technology law is not a static entity but a living, breathing response to the ever-evolving world of technology. As we stand at the precipice of an era dominated by artificial intelligence, quantum computing, and the Internet of Things, the role of technology lawyers becomes increasingly critical. Having experienced individuals like Ted can help your journey through technology law by adaptation, collaboration and a steadfast commitment to fostering a legal framework that enables rather than hinders progress.
