Our history

Barry.Nilsson. was founded in 1963 by John Barry and operated as a general commercial and property law firm. In the early 1970s, John's brother David Barry was joined by Jack Nilsson to form Barry & Nilsson. The firm later grew to include the areas of Family Law and Insurance & Health Law, and changed to Barry.Nilsson. in 2010.

In 2014, Barry.Nilsson. expanded its East Coast footprint and established an Insurance & Health practice in Sydney, before establishing operations in Melbourne in 2015. In 2016, the firm celebrated its national expansion, with the addition of a Family Law practice in Melbourne, an expanded Sydney office and the launch of offices in Hobart and Adelaide. In September 2017 the firm completed its national expansion with the launch of its sixth and final office in Perth.
