Barry Goldman brings a broad base of experience to law. Before going to law school, he was an entrepreneur and small business owner. In 1985, married with a young daughter, he took the plunge and returned to university to study law. Upon his call to the bar in 1990, he spent one year at the Federal Department of Justice doing drug prosecutions before going into private practice. Over the next 21 years, Barry built a busy and rewarding practice. He joined Shibley Righton LLP in 2008, and today his practice focuses primarily on employment law and civil litigation.

Barry’s employment law practice includes litigating employment terminations for both employees and employers, preparation and review of employment contracts and severance packages, preparation of workplace policies and procedures manuals, and counselling clients on such matters as wrongful dismissal, leaves of absence, harassment, discrimination, and workplace health and safety concerns.

His civil litigation practice includes plaintiffs’ personal injury matters resulting from motor vehicle accidents, many of which involve catastrophic injuries, as well as fire and property losses, professional negligence and product liability claims. Barry also has expertise with partnership disputes, contractual conflicts, and collections matters.

A native of Fredericton, N. B., Barry received his law degree at the University of Windsor and prior to that received his B. Com. at Dalhousie University. He is a member of the Law Society of Upper Canada, the Canadian Bar Association, and the Advocates Society. He is married with two grown children.
