Prior Experience

During an initial period in practice at two international law firms, Barry’s work included international commercial arbitrations pursuant to institutional and ad hoc arbitration rules involving UK and international clients. Barry also gained experience of commercial litigation, including cases before the High Court of Justice of England and Wales. Barry worked with a range of clients from the private and public sectors, often in the technology and telecommunications industries.

Barry then spent almost a decade at LexisNexis® UK where he helped launch the Lexis®PSL Arbitration practical guidance product, and in due course became Head of Arbitration and Head of the Dispute Resolution Group. Barry led and contributed significantly to the maintenance and development of LexisNexis’s practical guidance offering on international commercial arbitration and investment treaty arbitration.
