Peter Jolly, Chairman of Partners, explained that more than half of Thynne + Macartney’s partners have been recognised in the 2019 Edition of The Best Lawyers. The firm has six lawyers who hold specialist accreditation in their areas of expertise which is unique for a boutique firm in Queensland. The accredited practice areas are commercial, property, succession, and family law.
“Receiving this recognition demonstrates that Thynne + Macartney offers a significant depth of specialisation to our clients, and the best legal minds practising in Queensland ” said Mr Jolly.
Inclusion in the Best Lawyers Australia is based entirely on peer review which is designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical area and legal practice area.
Thynne + Macartney is celebrating 125 years practising in Queensland this year. It is a distinctive milestone for the firm which is Brisbane’s oldest law firm that is still trading under the original name over 125 years after they began.
