The Queensland legal and cricketing community are mourning the loss of Damien Mullins S.C, a prominent barrister and chairman of Queensland Cricket.

Mullins died over the weekend of cancer at the age of just 49. A director of Queensland Cricket for 20 years - serving in his 10th year as chairman - Mullins also contributed significantly to the Queensland legal profession, particularly in the area of succession law.

Mullins was also a sportsman. According to The Australian, he was "an elegant right-handed batsman" and captained the Easts, a Queensland cricket club, to a second grade premiership.

He graduated from the University of Queensland in 1978, was admitted as a barrister in 1984 and senior counsel in 2002.

Caiite Brewere, chairman of the Queensland Branch of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners released a statement today (21 September), sending her condolences to the family and friends of Mullins. "The legal profession has lost an incredible mind at such a young age," she said. "We honour Damien's contribution to succession law - it is immeasurable."
