Lucy Minter is a lawyer in our class actions department in Sydney working on the class actions against Cash Converters in Queensland and NSW, which allege that unfair credit fees were levied on vulnerable customers.
Lucy joined the firm in August 2013, and has worked on shareholder, product liability and other class actions, and also has a knowledge of corporate, commercial, tort and public law.
Lucy shares the firm’s commitment to justice, fairness and compassion, and is excited by the opportunity that class actions afford people who are unable to bring their claims alone.
“Access to justice was the primary reason the class actions regime came into existence and its application is constantly expanding to include new areas of the law," says Lucy.
“One of the most rewarding aspects of my work is assisting people to gain redress for injustices suffered at the hands of corporations and government.”
Before working at Maurice Blackburn, Lucy participated in internships at the Northern Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA) in the Northern Territory and the Public Interest Law Clearing House (PILCH). She holds a certificate 3 in construction carpentry and worked for five year on site, including running and working for housing NGOs in Australia, Nepal and Brazil.
