Hi, I’m Douglas Barnes, a lawyer with a technology background. Almost as frightening as a programmer with a screwdriver, but not quite.
I’m now a partner at Cyr Barnes LLP, after nine years of practicing at three very large, prestigious firms: Sullivan and Cromwell, Milbank Tweed and Gibson Dunn, all of which were founded in the 19th century. They are excellent firms, but ultimately that path was never going to be a great fit for me. It was, however, a great anthropological adventure (and great practical training).
