Fourteen Thynne + Macartney lawyers have been recognised amongst the best in the country across 18 areas of law.
Maritime + Transport Partner Michael Fisher is Shipping & Maritime Lawyer of the Year. For three of the past four years, this category has been held by Thynne + Macartney partners. Michael was also recognised as Lawyer of the Year in 2021, and partner Matthew Hockaday was recognised in the 2022 edition.
Over 2022 Michael led the Maritime team in significant matters, including representing APL England after the ship lost containers overboard off the coast of Sydney in 2020.
Michael is also Transportation Lawyer of the Year in the 2024 edition and one of three lawyers in Queensland recognised as Lawyer of the Year in two categories.
Alex Ramsey is the Australian Agriculture & Rural Affairs Lawyer of the Year for 2024.
Thynne + Macartney’s Agribusiness team are market leaders in Queensland, New South Wales and the Northern Territory who act for over 1,200 family and corporate agriculture businesses.
In recent years, Alex has acted in some of Australia’s largest rural property transactions and advised on the day-to-day operations for businesses located in the most remote parts of Australia.
Alex’s involvement with the Queensland Law Society’s Water and Agribusiness Committee demonstrates his contribution to the legal profession and his colleagues, who have recognised him with this award.
