‘I chose to be part of such an integral field to not only protect and uphold the key fundamental principles that underpin it – fairness, justice and equality – but to play an active part in shaping and influencing the law and ensuring that it continues to adapt to the needs of all.’

Dermot O’Donnell brings years of domestic and international litigation experience to his role as senior solicitor on Shine Lawyers’ Brisbane class actions team. A desire to ensure that the rights of individuals are protected, regardless of the size of the organisation they face, is the driving force behind his role.

Dermot studied at the University of Queensland, obtaining two degrees – Commerce in 2003 and Law in 2005. He has been admitted to practice as a lawyer in Queensland, England and Wales and, before joining Shine, worked for the United Kingdom government with respect to immigration and taxation law.

Initially specialising in international corporate tax litigation, and now class actions, Dermot has always been drawn to the public sector. Bringing his international, cross-jurisdictional litigation experience to domestic compensation law, he is committed to upholding the fundamental principles of law, and reshaping them where necessary so that they work for the everyday Australian.

When Dermot isn’t in the office or courtroom, he is an aviation enthusiast. He is passionate about civil aviation and enjoys exploring new cities around Australia and the globe.
