Shine Lawyers Melbourne


Class Actions

Lorne Franks is a Special Counsel in our Class Actions practice, based out of Melbourne. Lorne is a passionate lawyer, who is dedicated to social justice and making a positive impact. 

I became a lawyer because I wanted to use my skills and knowledge to make a positive impact. I am honoured to work on behalf of people who are suffering through no fault of their own, but due to the negligence or misconduct of powerful companies.” 

Before joining Shine, Lorne worked at a national compensation law firm where he played a key role in leading major cases to success, representing ordinary Australians injured by dangerous products, or who have suffered financial losses as shareholders and consumers. 

In addition to his class actions expertise, Lorne has practised as a solicitor in personal injury and tortious claims, with a focus on dust and industrial diseases. 

Lorne holds a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) from the Australian National University and a Juris Doctor from Monash University.
