Mr. Barry has also handled large loss fire litigation on both the admiralty side (e.g., New Orleans Chalmette Marina Fire for INA, a Cunard reefer ship fire for Castle & Cooke, a products liability claim in the S/S STONEWALL JACKSON fire) and on the non-maritime side (Orange Street Wharf Fire for CIGNA of Europe, S.A./ N.V.).
