Amadou Barry joined Miller Thomson as an articling student after having completed his professional training at the École du Barreau du Québec (Québec Bar School). He subsequently earned a Bachelor of Civil Law from Université de Montréal. Before undertaking his studies in Quebec, Amadou completed his law studies in France at the Université Paris 12. His studies were focused on business law with a specialization in contract law and guaranteed financing.
Following his studies in France, Amadou articled at several international law firms, particularly in the areas of business law and arbitration. He was therefore involved in various arbitration and international investment matters. He has also taken part in various forms of financing, including for projects in Africa (under the authority of the Organisation pour l’Harmonisation en Afrique du Droit des Affaires – OHADA) or with regard to transactions on the European market. Among other things, he was involved in the preparation of documents for securitization and syndicated financing transactions. Amadou’s Master thesis dealt with the consequences of the Greek debt crisis.
