Barrie was born in Lethbridge but grew up in Calgary, Alberta. Barrie attended the University of Alberta for his undergraduate and law degrees. Barrie moved back and joined the North & Company team in 1983 with his family. Working with North & Company Barrie has really enjoyed his career largely in part due to the great clients and co-workers here. Barrie primarily practices in business law, estate planning, and tax matters where he strives to make a positive impact on his clients’ lives. Throughout his career, Barrie has been involved with a variety of boards and organizations in southern Alberta such as the Alberta Law Society, the Legal Education Society, and the Surrogate Rules Committee. Now Barrie is focused on developing the next generation at the firm as he enters his grandparent years.

Outside of the firm, Barrie enjoys all kinds of sports and the arts. Barrie is very musical and continues to play guitar all over Southern Alberta with his band Steel Cut. Barrie has incorporated his hobbies well with the firm through past sponsorship of the Lethbridge Jazz Festival and Steel Cut's performance at the North & Company Street Wheelers weekend BBQ.

Barrie works from the Chancery Court office in downtown Lethbridge.
