The Australian businessman accused in the hit and run accident on the Sunset Strip that left a 21 year old woman dead has hired a top flight attorney to represent him.

Ryan Bowman is being held on $2 million bail, which was raised from an initial amount of $100,000. Sheriff’s spokesperson Steve Whitmore said that the increased bail is due to the seriousness of the alleged crime, and because his foreign citizenship makes him more of a flight risk.

According to The Age, an Australian newspaper, Bowman has hired Blair Berk, who has represented celebrities including Mel Gibson, Lindsay Lohan, Halle Berry and Reese Witherspoon.

He is scheduled to appear in Beverly Hills Court on Monday.

Bowman’s company, Zeal Entertainment, is a producer and developer of mobile content services with offices in Sydney, Paris, Singapore and Los Angeles. The company has partnerships with companies such as Vodafone and T-Mobile, and in 2008 partnered with Girls Gone Wild to develop an Australian magazine.
