Gary Goldman
Partner, Brisbane
For more than 25 years, I have advised listed and major unlisted entities on all aspects of business – especially merger and acquisition transactions and capital raising. My experience in corporate and capital market matters spans numerous sectors including agribusiness, energy (including renewable energy), infrastructure, retail, and retirement and aged care.

Clients seek my support on their most important transactions due to my ability to combine technical accuracy with a highly commercial approach. They also appreciate my responsiveness and ability to act as a trusted counsellor.

For several years, I chaired the Brisbane office community investment committee, which manages pro bono activities.
