Thomas Janson joined Shine Lawyers in 2015, and is a Senior Solicitor and National Manager of the Transport Law Department. Operating out of Shine’s Sydney CBD branch, Thomas specialises in representing those injured in aviation and aeronautical matters, having practiced in this field since 2013.
As National Manager, Thomas has been instrumental in growing Shine’s Aviation Law Services and introducing their Maritime and Travel Law services. He also currently runs claims in personal injury law, and regulatory and insurance law.
Thomas’ legal career commened in 2011, after he completed a Bachelor of Laws at the University of Wollongong. Since then, he has provided legal advice and representation to a variety of clients across a wide range of legal arenas including intellectual property law, commercial law and consumer law.
Thomas’ tenacity and clout as a solicitor have proved incomparable in the litigation of cornerstone aviation matters. He was instrumental in representing families of the victims of the 2014 Malaysia Airline crashes, the Air Vanuatu Flight NF crash, and the Air Bagan Flight 11 crash. His litigious proficiency extends further to aviation criminal and regulatory actions, and non-aviation cases such as criminal convictions for drug possession and sexual offences.
No matter the claim at hand, Thomas will fight doggedly for the rights of his client, leaving no stone unturned to ensure they receive the compensation they are entitled to.
