Barik Haider

Senior Dispute Resolution Solicitor

Get in touch

Barik is a dispute resolution solicitor with over 15 years’ experience in litigation and dispute resolution. Having qualified in 2005, he trained and progressed at large national firms and has also worked at smaller specialist litigation firms. Barik has acted for a variety of clients including large companies, SMEs and individuals and is often involved in complex high value disputes. He is a Recommended Lawyer in the Legal 500.

Barik's practice areas include:

  • professional negligence (primarily against solicitors, valuers and financial professionals)
  • contract disputes
  • banking/financial disputes
  • commercial fraud
  • consumer disputes

Barik is very client-focused and adept at boiling down complex cases to the key issues and explaining the relevant legal and factual points to clients in a straightforward manner.

I have always enjoyed being able to review a dispute to extract the relevant key legal issues and explain this to a client in a jargon free and clear way. Disputes can come with a lot of documents, information and background “white noise”, although they often pivot around very specific points that need to be addressed. I like to present these to the client and provide practical and legal options on how to deal with them.

Outside work, Barik spends lots of time with his wife and young son. He also enjoys playing tennis, swimming, boxing (watching only) and generally keeping fit. He's a keen reader, a cinephile, enjoys travelling and indulges in occasional writing and artwork when time allows.


TESTIMONIALS

What our clients say

The lawyers are friendly, approachable and knowledgeable, and their response times are excellent. We are quite an unusual business, and they were keen to understand the business and took the time to get to know us and ask all the right questions.

Professional service, expedited for our benefit
Ian Harvey Director, Harvey Facilities Management Limited
I was looking for intelligent, fast feedback on things I couldn’t do myself. Every step of the way, Harper James have fulfilled that promise – they’ve been so responsive. It’s run as a business, not as a law firm. Anyone who’s been near a law firm knows the difference. It’s a real pleasure.
