Thynne + Macartney has highlighted career development opportunities at the firm through the promotion of one lawyer to senior associate and two to associate.

Ruth Wang (migration) got the nod to senior associate, while Emma Kime (banking and finance) and Pravneel Chaudhary (commercial and dispute resolution) ascended to the role of associate.

Wang tackles the commercial and personal legal concerns of international clients in Australia. She has a strong grasp of migration laws and policies, and assists on family law, foreign investment and litigation issues. Her fluency in Mandarin and understanding of Cantonese enables her to connect easily with her mainly Asian client base.

Kime has handled all aspects of banking, financial, project and property-related concerns, including traditional banking, the management of company issues, property management and letting rights. She has also taken on matters involving solar and wind farms, water, vegetation and general agribusiness, given her knowledge of agribusiness law. She is also a nationally accredited mediator.

Chaudhary has experience in all aspects of commercial litigation and insolvency. He has tackled restructuring and insolvency matters such as voidable transactions, debt recovery, insolvent trading and winding ups. His practice concentrates on construction sector recoveries and contract disputes.

The promotions took effect on 1 July.

“Thynne + Macartney is committed to helping our staff achieve the next step in their career. Promotions like these showcase the growing talent being fostered at the firm thanks to our learning and development program and the mentor relationship each lawyer has with their partner and with other senior lawyers of the firm,” Thynne + Macartney chairman of partners Marc Maskell said.

The firm pointed to its significant investment in training and development of lawyers and staff. Its careers pathway program “supports and fosters a successful career in line with the firm's core values and competencies for each role,” Thynne + Macartney said.

A September 2020 survey conducted by the firm, the 2020 Culture and Climate Survey, revealed that 91% of respondents considered the learning and development program to be helpful in their quest to meet their career goals.
