Kate Gough is an Associate with Shine Lawyers’ Class Actions team. Kate and her colleagues fight to secure justice for thousands of Australians who have been wronged by governments, businesses, and other organisations.
"I am in a position of privilege and power, often unlike the clients I am representing, and have the ability to enact change and make a difference – even if it is just for a single person."
Kate is one of the solicitors who helped thousands of Australian women in a class action against Johnson & Johnson after they suffered due to faulty pelvic mesh.
"The Johnson & Johnson class action is about delivering justice for women who have had their quality of life irreparably compromised."
Before joining the Class Action Team, Kate practised in personal injury law, focusing on institutional sexual abuse. She has further experience across dust-related diseases, motor vehicle accident claims, workers’ compensation and medical negligence.
