CIE Legal has started the new financial year on a high, by promoting two lawyers to Senior Associate.
Farrel Braver, who started his career at CIE Legal as a paralegal, focuses on advising automotive companies on their commercial contracts, consumer law issues and consumer disputes. He is currently on secondment for CIE Legal with Honda Australia Motor Vehicles.
Cheng Ho commenced his legal career in a generalist role with a small practice and chose to join CIE Legal in 2018 for the opportunities it offers to continue that general advisory approach, particularly around commercial contracts and disputes work.
Commenting on the promotions, CIE Legal’s Managing Partner Peter George noted, “Farrel and Cheng have shown consistently high levels of service delivery and dedication to their clients and it is gratifying to reflect this in their promotion to Senior Associate. Both lawyers are committed to playing their part in progressing our business and the practice of law generally. Their lead roles in our customer experience programme led by CXINLAW are a great example of this. Farrel and Cheng’s promotions are a reflection of CIE Legal’s strong performance and confidence in the future, as major business clients continue to look beyond big law firms to help them capitalise on opportunities, manage their legal risk and prevent disputes.”
