Barry is an experienced commercial and dispute resolution lawyer who manages our Commercial NDA Service. His clients at Mattersmith are principally in the global asset management and financial services sectors.
Before moving into non-contentious commercial law a few years ago, Barry’s experience derives from tenures at provincial, national and international law firms where across a variety of client sectors he practiced dispute resolution including IP infringements; breach of confidence claims; shareholder disputes; multi party/international contract disputes and asset recoveries; enforcement law; litigious restructuring and insolvency matters; and director disqualification.
Barry is known for his sound commercial acumen; understanding a client’s focus; meeting deadlines with speed and accuracy; and calmness in a client crisis. His many years of experience handling and resolving disputes in the High Court have given him a keen eye for assessing and gauging risk.
Barry is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Legal Executives and holds a post graduate diploma in Advanced Litigation from Nottingham Trent University.
