For the past 20 years, Barry Cutler has focused his practice on providing clients with advice on compliance with consumer law requirements and defending companies that have been challenged by the FTC, a state attorney general, or a private party. Having been an Assistant United States Attorney and Director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection, Barry brings unique knowledge to his practice and has been engaged several times for his familiarity with consumer law, testifying in court as an expert witness on two occasions and providing deposition testimony on several others. He thinks broadly about his clients' long-term interests, addressing what course of action will maximize the ability to achieve their goals.
While at the FTC, Barry managed about 200 lawyers at headquarters and in 10 regional offices. He received the highest staff honor, the Distinguished Service Award. He also served as a U.S. Representative to the Consumer Policy Committee of the OECD in Paris.
