Geoffrey McDonald


Geoffrey was called to the bar in 1996.

Geoffrey McDonald has been admitted, since 1993, as both a barrister and accountant.

For 25 years he was an insolvency partner and ultimately the National Chairman of an Australian accounting firm.

Given that Geoffrey specialises in the areas of commercial, insolvency and bankruptcy law, the combination of “barrister and accountant” gives him an advantage in his practice of providing legal advice and when undertaking these intensive cases.

Through the company Helping Clients Pty Ltd, Geoffrey provides assistance to companies and individuals who are dealing with debts and defaults.
