Barry Dorking


LLB (First Class Hons), University of Otago

Barry specialises in employment law. Barry’s earlier experience in marketing and general management, together with serving as local president of Actors Equity New Zealand, has given him an understanding of employment issues from the perspectives of both employer and employee, and a practical approach to employment work which focuses on solutions which not only meet the complex legal requirements of this area of law but also work in practice.

Barry was teaching marketing management and industrial relations when he became interested in the law. Part-time papers turned into full-time study and Barry graduated with a First Class Honours degree in 1993. He joined Anderson Lloyd on graduation, tutored in contract law at the University of Otago for many years, and became an Anderson Lloyd Partner in 2001.

Barry is currently a member of the Trust Board of Otago Access Radio, and is the honorary solicitor for the Classic Motor Racing Club New Zealand.
