Barrie joined the south west firm’s private equity team at the start of the year as an equity partner. He is based in the London office.
Barrie said: “I was attracted to Osborne Clarke not only by the quality of the people but particularly by its international reach and the strength and depth of its dedicated private equity team across its offices.
"The US connections afforded by its Silicon Valley office and US contacts are impressive and the quality and calibre of transactions and clients domestically and cross-border in Europe were compelling for me.”
Barrie’s job history includes a spell at private equity group 3i, a key client for Osborne Clarke. Last year the firm advised the buy-out house on its successful £555m bid for NCP the parking services company.
Osborne Clarke has also hired private equity associate Justine Jones from Lovells.
