Mike Barker represents businesses and individuals in civil matters involving money damages and equitable relief in state and federal courts throughout the country. His trial practice focuses on complex commercial disputes, including intellectual property, contract, fiduciary, and business tort litigation. He has significant experience advising clients ranging from multinational corporations to individual consumers in a variety of industries that include software and technology, finance and accounting, product manufacturing and sales, health care research and services, and condominium and community property ownership.
Before joining the firm, Mr. Barker’s practice covered a broad spectrum of general liability theories, such as contract disagreements, construction defects and accidents, wrongful death and catastrophic personal injuries, product and premises liability, and consumer protection violations. He routinely advised clients concerning contract and tort liability exposure, and drove litigation strategy from pre-suit investigation through settlement and trial.
Mr. Barker prides himself in providing thoughtful, dedicated representation to his clients, while offering pragmatic legal solutions to achieve client goals both inside and outside of the courtroom. His aggressive approach to protecting client interests is informed by nearly fifteen years spent working his way up the ranks at Boston litigation firms, having earned his law degree at night while working full time to support antitrust litigation involving international pharmaceutical manufacturers in federal courts across the country.
