Recognised for its expertise in Environment & Heritage for the first time in Doyle’s Guide to Leading Lawyers in 2021, Thynne + Macartney is the only new firm to be listed this year.
“We are delighted to have received recognition from Doyle’s again,” said Tim, “Particularly in the areas of Environment & Heritage. The team has successfully assisted clients on a number of high-profile matters over the last 12 months with the COVID-19 pandemic adding some complexities.”
In the recent Court of Appeal decision of Abeleda & Anor v Brisbane City Council & Anor  QCA 257, Tim and his team successfully defended an appeal against a Planning and Environment Court judgment which had approved a development application by the Brisbane City Council.
In the last year, the team welcomed Daniele Sibenaler as Special Counsel bringing with her more than 10 years’ experience as a town planner. Holly Vaughan also joined the team and Tony Calligeros was promoted to Associate.
Congratulations to Tim and his team on your well-deserved recognition.
