Damian Scattini is a Principal in Maurice Blackburn's Major Projects department, based in Brisbane.

Damian has more than twenty years experience working in commercial litigation, class actions and product liability, and he now focuses primarily on major litigation cases. Damian is heading the investigation into a potential class action in relation to the operation of the Wivenhoe Dam and the subsequent flooding in south east Queensland. He is also overseeing the equine influenza class action.

Damian joined Maurice Blackburn in 2011 after heading a practice area in another national law firm.

Damian is an active member of the Australian Lawyers Alliance and the American Association for Justice (AAJ). He has held positions on the Board of Governors of the AAJ and as chair of the Legal Practice Section of the Law Council of Australia.

Damian was born in rural Queensland and after spending several years with his family in California, he returned to Australia and boarding school in Toowoomba. Damian notes his experience in the US - where he mixed with children of many cultural, religious and economic backgrounds - as a major reason why he has such a strong interest in social justice.
