The legal threats and demands from Baker McKenzie in relation to this site

Sadly, there has been a litany of threats and intimidation emanating from within the Law Society of NSW, which has seen letters threatening court action, an army colleague of the then president of the Law Society making a clandestine visit to my employer’s office with the directive that my employment be terminated, and even two detectives turning up on my front door due to my writing to the Legal Services Commissioner regarding his own concealing of criminality.

The latest act of intimidation is another letter from Baker & McKenzie, advising that the statements on this site are ‘false, malicious, and highly defamatory‘, and that they had been instructed to commence proceedings and seek urgent interlocutory orders.  As can be seen below, a letter was written to Baker McKenzie advising of their non-compliance with the Defamation Act 2005, and also advising of the corrupt nature of their clients.  Predictably, everyone has fallen silent.

See below the letters to Baker McKenzie in relation to the above.

Dear Mr Forbes
 
Re:  Law Society of NSW – covering up of criminal conduct
 
I refer to your letter of 12th July 2022 and my two E-mail responses to such of that same date.  Despite my request for clarity or proof of the assertions made, you have provided neither comment nor response.
 
For terms of reference let us firstly go to the crux of this matter.  On 23rd June 2010, Terence Goldberg of Turner Freeman Lawyers filed an Application for Assessment of Solicitor/Client Costs with the Supreme Court of NSW.  In his application to the Court, Mr Goldberg improperly and fraudulently states that he acted for the four plaintiffs together with the sixth defendant in Supreme Court proceedings as heard on 27th November 2009.  As you and your clients well know, Mr Goldberg acted for the four plaintiffs only in such.
 
Both you and your clients are further aware that Terence Goldberg having fraudulently obtained a judgment debt against the party who was not his client, and in concert with another, clandestinely created two entities in the guise of charities to siphon into all further monies as owned by that same party for whom he did not act (as well as placing other monies of an unknown origin into one of those entities).
 
Coming back to your letter of 12th July 2022, wherein you state you act for the Law Society of NSW.  In such letter, you claim that both your firm and your client are harassed by my writing to you, and it, in relation to the above.  You also claim that your client has legitimate concerns regarding my making public of the above.
 
However, and as is your way, you decline to provide any evidence of the said harassment and you decline to provide your client’s legitimate concerns.  Sadly, I am well used to these tactics.
 
As you are aware, I wrote to Ms Radhika Withana of counsel on 8th April 2019 regarding not only Mr Goldberg’s unlawful activities, but also the covering up of such by (both your client and) the Office of the Legal Services Commissioner.  I attach a copy of that letter*.
 
Now, as you know, such letter to Ms Withana is calm, detailed, and factual, however, some mere weeks later, John McKenzie, the Legal Services Commissioner, in an act of apparent retaliation and while also claiming to be ‘harassed’ by my writing to him, sent two police officers to my front door carrying the instruction that I was to cease writing regarding the above, or if I were not to do so criminal proceedings would be commenced against me.  Of course, no such criminal proceedings ensued.  (I have never been the subject of any criminal proceeding.)
 
You know, too, of the several threats as made against me by your firm that Supreme Court proceedings would be commenced against me with no further notice to myself, and you are aware also that your firm was unable to provide me with the basis of those said proceedings, or indeed of any particular whatsoever of the many claims as made against me.
 
In exactly the same vein, you and your firm are now unable to provide me with the ‘legitimate concerns’ as now supposedly held by your clients.  Quite simply, there are none to provide.  Barren threats and baseless assertions it seems are normal practice and are made with a simple backward wave of a hand, and with no consequence to speak of.
 
In previous correspondences, your firm has variously described the contents of letters to your clients as ‘false, misleading, defamatory, and highly defamatory’ and further that the making public thereof is intended to cause ‘grave and serious harm as well as causing significant distress and hurt to feelings’ yet you and your firm are unable to substantiate one single contention as made.  Baker McKenzie’s allegations have not been made in good faith and are without merit, with such straining or even leaping beyond the bounds of credibility.
 
Many years ago I learned that rising to meet an aggressor was futile and in the face of aggression a calm head was required.  As you know and despite the truculence shown by the many who are attempting to cover up the criminal activities of Terence Goldberg of Turner Freeman Lawyers, I have remained steadfastly calm at all times and have never once veered from the truth or the base of the matter.  Apart from the barrage of somewhat hysterical rhetoric and general noise from parties such as yourselves, not one single person has been able to identify or refer to one single untrue statement as made by myself, and yet you have the impudence to claim that I have entered into a ‘campaign of harassment’.
 
It is my understanding that E-mails to your firm and to the Law Society have now been blocked.  This is a manoeuvre used solely and deliberately to prevent the dissemination of information, and has been done so as I have written to others within your law firm and the Law Society of NSW regarding the cover up that is taking place; and as above have done so calmly and factually, and without embellishment of any kind.
 
Let us turn our minds for a moment to the letter you wrote to me in February 2017 as instructed by Ms Pauline Wright, then President of the Law Society of NSW, with you too threatening me with Supreme Court proceedings for my making public of Terence Goldberg’s criminal activities and the Law Society’s covering up of such.  Ms Wright is now a Local Court Magistrate.  My concern at these events borders on ineffable, such is the magnitude.  The gravity of such cannot be overstated.
 
You were personally made aware of Mr Goldberg’s criminal activities and of both Ms Wright’s and the Law Society’s covering up of such at that precise time and despite such you continue in your campaign of intimidation and calumny while attempting to protect both the wrongdoing and the wrongdoers.  Further, and quite naturally, such contemptible and venal conduct can not and will not go unopposed.  Integrity must enter into the narrative.
 
It has become increasingly obvious that what we have operating within the heart of the legal profession is a cabal intent on subjugating the rule of law.  Baker McKenzie is quite evidently part of that cabal.
 
The putrefaction within our legal system appears to run as wide as it does deep.
 
Yours faithfully

Re:  Law Society of NSW – covering up of criminal conduct
 
You have not responded to my letter of 19th July 2022.  Clearly, you have no intention of doing so.
 
As you are quite aware, Baker McKenzie wrote to me on 2nd December 2021 making the allegations that my ‘false, defamatory’, and indeed ‘highly defamatory’, statements gave rise to the imputations that your clients were partaking in corrupt conduct.  However, and as you are equally aware, all claims as made by myself were, and remain, true and factual.
 
Now, and of course, it would be apparent to a person with talents less than your own, that if my statements are true, then the imputations that arise are true also.  Despite documentation being provided to your firm evidencing the truth of all claims, your firm saw fit to write to me on three further occasions threatening me with Court action, and did so deliberately to cause fear and in attempts to cover up your clients’ conduct as well as other acts of wrongdoing.
 
However, and on 12th July 2022, you had the temerity to write to me further, and somewhat ironically, complaining that I had entered into a ‘campaign of harassment’ against your firm and your clients.  Your disingenuous conduct and that of your firm can only be described as amoral and only serves to destroy trust in an already eroded legal profession.
 
For reference, I attach a copy of Baker McKenzie’s letter of 2nd December 2021 and a copy of my aforementioned letter to you of 19th July 2022.
 
Yours faithfully

Dear Mr Tidball

Re:  Fraud and corruption

On 14th September 2009, four individuals retained Turner Freeman Lawyers to act for them and to seek advices in relation to financial irregularities having been discovered within an incorporated association, in which they were committee members.

Due to the discovery of the said financial irregularities and missing monies, a meeting of the members was called for and subsequently held on 10th September 2009, with the said four individuals losing their positions as committee members of the association.  That association was the Enmore Spiritualist Church Incorporated.

The four individuals commenced proceedings in the Supreme Court of NSW, naming five church members as defendants, and also naming the association itself as the sixth defendant.  The naming of the association as the sixth defendant would, of course, have had the effect of binding the church into any decision as made by the Court.  The four plaintiffs were seeking to declare as invalid the meeting that took place on 10th September 2009.

As above, the four plaintiffs were represented by Turner Freeman Lawyers, the first to fifth defendants were represented by Pigott Stinson Lawyers, and the sixth defendant, the Enmore Spiritualist Church Incorporated, was unrepresented.

The proceedings were heard in the Supreme Court of NSW on 27th November 2009, with one order only being made by the Court, ie “Each party is to pay their own costs”.  The Court declined to make any orders the plaintiffs had sought.

On 23rd June 2010, Terence Goldberg of Turner Freeman Lawyers filed with the Supreme Court of NSW an Application for Assessment of Solicitor/Client Costs, claiming in such that there had been five plaintiffs and five defendants (in the said proceedings) and also claiming that he had acted for the Enmore Spiritualist Church (the sixth defendant).  Terence Goldberg’s lie was clear and uncomplicated.  I attach a copy of the filed Application for Assessment of Solicitor/Client Costs.

Having made a complaint to the Office of the Legal Services Commissioner, the OLSC wrote to me on 27th April 2011 and stated that the matter had been referred to the Law Society of NSW for investigation.

On 7th September 2012, and after a 17 month long ‘investigation’, the Law Society dismissed all complaints against Terence Goldberg of Turner Freeman Lawyers, stating “The Court did not make any order prohibiting the lawyers in the proceedings from recovering their costs from their clients”.  As can be plainly seen, the sixth defendant was not Turner Freeman’s client.

The Law Society’s above statement was made despite all Court documents illustrating that Turner Freeman Lawyers did not act for the sixth defendant, and also with no documents stating anything to the contrary.

As you well know, Turner Freeman Lawyers, on the basis of the fraudulently filed Application for Assessment of Solicitor/Client Costs, obtained a judgment debt against the sixth defendant, and then entered into a conspiracy with the liquidator to fraudulently obtain all remaining funds as owned by it. 

The fraud involved is simplicity in itself.

Yet, despite the simplicity of the criminality involved, The Law Society and the Office of the Legal Services Commissioner refuse to explain their respective positions that Turner Freeman Lawyers acted for the sixth defendant in the said proceedings, and that the church was their client.  However, and, of course, that position is indeed unexplainable.

Both yourself and Pauline Wright wrote to me yesterday (separately) stating that the Law Society had dismissed my complaints as made to the OLSC in the first instance and that the OLSC had upheld such.

However, you both decline to state that that dismissal took place some eight years ago in 2012, and you both also fail to mention or comment on the further criminal activities entered into by Terence Goldberg of Turner Freeman Lawyers in the intervening period, with all of such taking place under your and Ms Wright’s watch, and with both of you having been made fully aware of such (also in the intervening period).

It is also pertinent to mention, and given the obviousness of the fraudulent activities that have taken place, a complaint was made to the NSW Police on 5th May 2015.  The NSW Police inform me that John McKenzie, the NSW Legal Services Commissioner, was interviewed by them in the latter part of 2015.

It therefore goes without saying that if Mr McKenzie had been truthful during that interview with the NSW Police, Terence Goldberg would have been charged with multiple counts of fraud.  No charges ensued.

It is obvious that in your respective positions of Chief Executive Officer and President of the Law Society, both yourself and Pauline Wright sought to cover up the wrongdoing and protect Terence Goldberg from the weight of the law, thereby assisting him in his criminal endeavours.

Coincidentally, both you and Ms Wright now hold identical positions at the Law Council of Australia.

Do you wish to provide comment?
