Legacy.  Impact.  Influence.  Things that many seek to have but are difficult to achieve.  This is true across any profession, including the legal profession and that effect is magnified when you consider an international legal career.  Which is why its that much more impressive when someone is able to accomplish said impact, and that is the story of this week’s guest, Barry Appleton.  Barry has occupied a number of positions and roles throughout his career and shares his experience and perspective as counsel, arbitrator, mentor and educator in the field.  Check it out:
