He Understands
We needed a versatile attorney

“I have had the privilege of working with Barry on over 100 contracts. We needed a versatile attorney who understood product development, intellectual property rights, publishing and risk management. This was a very complex job that required flexibility and sound judgment. The cookie cutter approach would not have worked in this dynamic, ever changing environment. I would not hesitate to recommend Barry to any company involved in any aspect of the entertainment or games business.”
