Kate Gough is a solicitor with Shine Lawyers’ Class Actions team. Kate and her colleagues in Class Actions represent groups of Australians who have been wronged by governments, business and other organisations.
Kate is one of the solicitors on the Johnson & Johnson class action, representing more than 1,350 women who have 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 practiced 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.
Kate graduated from James Cook University with a Bachelor of Laws (Hons), before relocating to Brisbane and receiving her Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice from the Queensland University of Technology in 2018.
“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.”
