I am driven by the desire to find practical solutions. In my quest, I get off the beaten path, create new ideas, new avenues. It’s my leitmotif.
Ms. Sophie Barry practices in civil and commercial litigation since 2004. Her former litigation practice extended to all aspects of litigation, including alternative dispute resolution methods. Since 2013, Sophie’s practice has focused on managing litigation and investigations for private and public organizations and providing legal opinions and strategic advice regarding dispute prevention.
In this role, Sophie manages, with her clients’ executives and external legal counsel, ongoing litigation files, assesses reserves for accounting purposes, identifies strategies, tools and relevant resources, in order to minimize financial and reputational risk for her clients, and prevent potential litigation. Her litigation and investigations management practice leads her to manage and optimize legal expense budgets and to collaborate on various presentations to boards of directors.
Sophie also worked in major and complex files, which have allowed her to develop sound experience in document management and review.
With her experience in construction law litigation, Sophie is also called upon mid-project to advise and guide contractors, owners and consultants to prevent litigious situations or settle them promptly during the construction project.
At Delegatus, Sophie manages litigation and investigations for major pan-Canadian public organizations.
Before joining Delegatus, Sophie worked within the Norton Rose Fulbright Canada litigation group (previously Ogilvy Renault).
