Barry Buchman

Haynes and Boone LLP

Barry Buchman, a partner in the Insurance Recovery practice group, Barry represents policyholders in a wide variety of complex insurance coverage matters. He has handled disputes over general liability coverage for various toxic tort and environmental claims, including

  • “medical monitoring” claims and claims by governmental entities related to public health;
  • disputes over directors and officers (D&O) coverage for shareholder class actions and government investigations;
  • disputes over errors and omissions (E&O) coverage for consumer class actions;
  • disputes over coverage for sexual misconduct claims; and
  • disputes over coverage for “first-party” losses such as business interruption and losses on leased and financed assets.

Barry regularly publishes and speaks on insurance coverage issues, and he has been quoted in leading publications such as the Wall Street Journal, the National Law Journal, and Business Insurance.

Barry also handles matters involving highly-specialized insurance products. These products include corporate-owned life insurance (COLI), residual value insurance, and insurance products that are unique to automotive dealers.

Over the course of his 20-year career, Barry has successfully litigated significant and cutting-edge insurance coverage cases, both in federal and state trial and appellate courts and in the context of private arbitration.

These successes include the first pro-policyholder appellate decision on the issue of whether a policyholder can sue a reinsurer in tort for interfering with the policyholder-insurance company relationship. He also has negotiated and mediated numerous favorable settlements for his clients, sometimes without ever needing to file litigation. In total, Barry has helped to obtain over $1 billion in insurance assets for his clients.

In addition to his insurance coverage practice, Barry also represents businesses in complex commercial disputes, such as those involving allegations of commercial disparagement and other business torts.

Barry has developed a particular niche representing clients in the private equity and automotive spaces. His clients include one of the world’s leading private equity firms and one of the largest diversified automotive companies in the world.

Barry maintains an active pro bono practice; he has handled several federal civil rights cases on behalf of the disabled and he serves on the board of directors of the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs.
