Barry Sutton

Chartered Legal Executive and Senior Associate


Barry was appointed a senior associate of Stephensons in 2015 and heads up the credit hire team within the personal injury department.

Barry joined Stephensons in 2007 as a graduate clerk and joined the personal injury department in 2008 after initially working in the conveyancing department.

In 2009 Barry spotted an opportunity to carve out a more niche area which he could develop himself, which was credit hire work. He worked tirelessly, building up his knowledge in this complex area and at the same time building relationships with an existing work provider and bringing in new sources of credit hire work to the team.

Barry has a seat on the executive committee of the Credit Hire Organisation and juggles this excellently with the demands of his busy, complex caseload.

The quality of Barry's work is consistently high and he complies with the SLA's required, not only from an internal perspective, but also those agreed with the referrers of credit hire work.

Barry has single handedly built up this area, whilst building a reputation as a leader in this field of work. This has resulted in him being asked to speak on the credit hire panel at the annual MASS conference.
