Barry is a partner and has been practising in the insurance field since 1983. He has been listed and repeatedly recommended as a leading practitioner representing defendants in the personal injury field by Lexpert and has been recognized by Best Lawyers.
Over the years Barry has litigated claims in all areas of insurance, with extensive, wide-ranging experience in everything from defending sexual abuse, to life and disability, and institutional claims.
With considerable experience in the courts at all levels Barry has developed a reputation with insurers and lawyers for reasonable and practical resolution of litigation; however, there is no doubt that Barry will go to court to secure the reasonable result.
Barry has depth and experience that produces sound solutions to insurance coverage issues.
Barry prefers a collaborative approach with clients, applying his knowledge, experience and creativity to provide clients with cost-effective advice and strategies to resolve insurance issues in a timely manner.
Barry loves travel and when not travelling, running and bicycling (and cross-country skiing when we used to have snow). Reading is still a passion along with his children and growing brood of grandchildren. He continues his intermittent struggle to improve his golf game, and recently picked up tennis. His current favourite sport is badminton because it is about precision and planning, with the hard part being execution.
Most of all, Barry values courtesy, respect and a good sense of humour.
