Min Guo is a class actions Senior Associate in Maurice Blackburn’s Melbourne office.

Min has particular experience managing complex large-scale commercial litigation. He specialises in corporate governance, especially market manipulation and misleading and deceptive conduct, as well as cartels and negligence.

Min holds first-class honours in a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Engineering from the University of Adelaide. He joined Maurice Blackburn as a lawyer in 2010 and was promoted to Associate in 2013. Prior to this, he worked as a management consultant, advising ASX 200 businesses on commercial strategy and public policy reform.

“I’ve long had an interest in the convergence of law and business regulation. The class actions system is highly rewarding to practice in as it allows victims of mass wrongs to seek restitution on a more level playing field. It enables powerful, sophisticated parties to be held to account by those they have injured and who would not normally have a voice,” says Min.

“In addition to my legal experience, I have broad-ranging non-legal experience in management, economics, finance and information technology, from my previous careers as a management consultant and IT consultant. These skills help me quickly understand the strengths and weaknesses of my cases and let me provide my clients with relevant and timely strategic advice.”

Min is currently investigating a potential class action against QBE. He has previously held key roles in significant litigation including the Kilmore East-Kinglake Black Saturday class action and the Amcor/Visy anti-cartel class action.

Min is also acting in a pro bono social justice class action against the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection and the Commonwealth, on behalf of asylum seekers who have been injured by immigration detention on Christmas Island. As the son of refugee ‘boat people’ in the 1970s, this is a case Min holds close to his heart.
