When working with Barry, clients learn to expect the unexpected. Barry draws on a thorough knowledge of the law and best practice and thrives on finding an unconventional solution when a conventional approach won’t work. An active part of Barry’s practice is acting as counsel in the film and television industry, one of the largest and strongest practices in the country, in which he represents U.S. and Canadian production companies. He also represents many clients in the construction industry and practices extensively in this major economic sector.
Barry practises exclusively in the areas of labour, employment, human rights and administrative law, representing clients before federal and provincial labour and administrative tribunals, arbitration boards and panels, in court and in collective bargaining and negotiations. His decades-long experience in the industry and knowledge of the environment and the people means he offers solid, effective advice.
Barry also represents clients in a number of sectors, including the transportation, technology and service industries. He is often consulted by trade groups, employer organizations and governmental agencies. In addition to his advocacy practice, Barry's representation of clients includes providing practical labour and employment business advice, and presenting seminars and training workshops.
