Key Achievements

Tips For All Potential Clients

    1. Regulatory, tribunals and courts
      We deal extensively with administrative bodies including professional councils, HCCC, Medicare, the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, the Administrative Decisions Tribunal/VCAT/SACAT/QCAT and NCAT, the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), the Therapeutic Goods Association ("TGA") and the Australian Human Rights Commission.
    2. Biotech and health commercialisation
      We have assisted in commercialising some of Australia's greatest biotech achievements. The commercialisation of intellectual property in the areas of biotech and media is of particular note as it showcases some of our taxation, fund, structured finance and commercial expertise. Notable deals include the commercialisation of the HPV vaccine – Gardasill and the Advanced MRI systems.
    3. Seamless integration of diverse practice areas-strategy and outstanding results.
      Commercially focused evaluation of strategy is our key differentiator. We are able to achieve this because we bring expertise from diverse areas to focus on medicolegal and health matters. We are not just senior lawyers that have done regulatory work for 30 years and therefore have no understanding of commercial matters. Our senior legal team oversees and discusses every medicolegal and health matter the matter who your responsible lawyer is. We review our strategy at every stage to ensure that the financial and emotional costs are objectively considered by our clients and this leads to outstanding results in any legal matters that we undertake.

    Goldman’s dispute resolution/ litigation group has furnished legal advice and steerage throughout a hard and vicious court scenario. I discovered them to be experienced, responsive, knowledgeable, and honest. Jas is amazing on the overview and strategy. Ms Jen Cheal as the practice manager excels in knowledge, details and delivery; harnessing and enhancing the lawyers. Kim as client liaison is great to call when I need to speak with the legal eagles on weekends or nights when no one would answer my call! Thanks for the corny jokes Kim! (seriously). The senior team kept me informed and drove the litigation better than I expected and honestly, its no comparison to other firms I have used. I have used some very large and good firms (at 30% more cost +) but it always comes down to the people and their willingness. Not cheap here – but always reasonable and willing to review invoices and fees. Worth double with the drive and energy to win! Litigation is never a good thing and the last thing you need are jaded lawyers. Recommended and 5 star ! Thanks guys!
