Currently, Lorne is part of a dedicated team working on the Roundup class action, which seeks compensation for people who have developed cancer after using the herbicide. This case represents an important effort to hold one of the world’s biggest companies accountable on behalf of the affected individuals.
Other landmark class actions that Lorne has worked on include:
Lorne has also worked extensively on personal injury and social justice cases. He has represented clients who have suffered due to exposure to hazardous substances like asbestos and ionising radiation in courts and tribunals throughout Australia. Lorne has also advocated for the rights of asylum seekers who have experienced serious injuries while in immigration detention.
Lorne says: “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 entities.”
“Class actions serve as a means for everyday Australians to seek justice when they have been wronged on a large scale. They are an extension of our firm's mission to advocate for injured people."
He has a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) from the Australian National University and a Juris Doctor from Monash University.
