Barrie Goldsmith

Barrie Goldsmith was admitted as a Lawyer in England in 1975. Following his migration to Australia in 1982, he worked until 1984 for Blake Dawson Waldron (now part of Ashurst), one of Australia’s largest law firms.

Since 1984, Barrie and his firm have specialised in all areas of commercial litigation, in commercial and business law and in international law. The firm’s defamation practice continued to grow, and grow significantly, resulting in the establishment of a specialist firm

The firm works side by side with Goldsmiths Lawyers, which continues to specialise in commercial litigation, company and business law and international law. The firm has offices in Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
