Barry qualified in 2008 and has been with the firm since 2011. He arrived with a wealth of experience in employment law, especially having worked in-house for major legal expenses insurance provider, DAS. There, he provided employment law advice across the whole spectrum of employment law issues to commercial and individual clients.
He puts his wide range of experience to good use providing commercial advice, day to day, on all employment issues including discrimination, unfair dismissal, breach of contract, TUPE, whistleblowing and redundancy. He also advises on drafting contracts, policies and procedures.
Barry is an experienced advocate in the Employment Tribunal and indeed Beverley offered him a job on the spot after he had been her opponent on a case in Manchester in 2010. Little did she know at the time that he had actually won the case, although she says this simply reinforced her decision!
Barry was promoted to Director on 1 September 2017.
Away from work Barry is a keen golfer with a handicap of 4, he enjoys raising money for his favourite charities; Free Kicks Foundation and Kidney Research UK. He is also an avid football fan and can often be found on the terraces of London Road watching his favourite team Peterborough United.
