Warren Barnett

1964- 2016

Founding partner, Warren sadly passed away in 2016. His energy, enthusiasm and great character will be sorely missed by the team at Squires Barnett, clients and friends alike. Client and friend, Garry Goodwin said: “The enthusiasm and charisma that Warren would bring to projects, meetings or public consultations would almost without fail win over the hearts and minds of the most difficult land owner, agency or planner. Warren never failed to deliver”.
