Local law firm gets new shine

RURAL law firm Shannon Donaldson Province Lawyers has announced it will join forces with national plaintiff litigation experts Shine Lawyers.

Trading as Shannon Donaldson - A Division of Shine Lawyers, the firm will remain committed to helping people in rural communities by continuing with the same work-types at their offices in Dalby, Roma and Toowoomba.

Shine Lawyers Managing Director Simon Morrison said the merge would allow for stronger representation of rural communities through the ability to advocate at a national level.

"Shannon Donaldson is a very well-respected firm and has won awards for its civil justice pursuits and business excellence," Mr Morrison said.

"Like Shine, they are a progressive and passionate bunch and they've become known for standing their ground when the going gets tough.

"Cultural alignment with an organisation is very important and Shannon Donaldson has the same country roots as Shine.

"We opened our first office in Toowoomba in 1976, so protecting the interests of local people and advocating for regional communities has always been of utmost importance to us."

Shannon Donaldson partner Peter Shannon said he looked forward to becoming part of the Shine team and had been impressed by Shine's 'local feel' while continuing to grow as a leading national law firm.

"From our first meeting with Shine it was apparent that we all shared the same set of values - tackling the tough issues and righting wrong for the benefit of those who have the odds stacked against them.

"It's these values which we think are embedded in both of our organisations and lived out by our staff every day," he said.

Co-Partner Adair Donaldson said he was looking forward to the additional client benefits that Shine's national resources would deliver.

"Shine Lawyers will provide an additional pool of resources and experience that we can draw upon to ensure current and future client matters are progressed as efficiently as possible with the same quality of care they've come to expect from us."
