Barry L. Davis

Mediator & Arbitrator at Upchurch Watson White & Max


Barry’s experience at being a results-oriented mediator comes from decades of having litigated and serving as lead trial counsel to both plaintiffs and defendants in hundreds of high-profile personal injury and wrongful death matters, complex construction and commercial disputes, insurance coverage and bad faith cases, and negligent security lawsuits. He recently devised and negotiated a very creative $103.5M settlement involving more than 40 parties and insurers in the mass tort FIU Bridge Collapse litigation, where he served as lead counsel for the bridge designer.

Barry has been a Florida Bar Board Certified Civil Trial lawyer since 1989, was elected by his peers as a Super Lawyer and holds a Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent rating. He began his own law firm with a few partners more than 25 years ago and served as its managing partner while it grew to 30 lawyers. It was eventually acquired by an international law firm where he continued to serve as managing partner. For more than 20 years, Barry was also outside general counsel and on the Board of Directors of a major multinational construction company. As an adjunct professor of law for several years, Barry taught classes in settlement negotiation and products liability.
