Barry Doherty


Return to Our People

Barry has practised in the field of corporate law for over 20 years, latterly as a Partner at Weightmans in Birmingham heading up their local corporate team. Prior to that he has held positions at Wragge & Co and Pinsents.  Barry provides a comprehensive range of legal services, with a particular focus on corporate transactional work, including mergers and acquisitions, and management buy-outs and buy-ins. As well as offering advice on general company law compliance and corporate governance, he also handles company formations, re-structuring, joint ventures, and shareholders agreements.

Barry has also been recognised in the Legal 500 as “practical and experienced, one to recommend”.

Examples of his work and activities are set out below:

  • Successfully led a transactional team  to create one of the first ever mergers of its type between two GP practices (two heart of Birmingham medical practices joined forces to form a ‘Super Partnership’ – in line with the policies of the Government at the time to improve efficiency at local level within the NHS).
  • Written several articles for publication in the Financial Times, Independent Retailer and other journals, as well as providing commentary to periodicals such as Midlands Insider and Midlands Business News. Provided insightful commentary on such matters as funding structures as well as governance matters, and has also offered pragmatic solutions to businesses that have been affected by the current economic downturn.
  • Developed a “portfolio product” for clients, essentially offering post completion support to both investors and investee clients, thereby providing a cost effective legal service to businesses following investment whilst at the same time maintaining relationships and ensuring an opportunity to continue acting for parties on a subsequent sale or other transaction.

"They really are top-notch."
