Rajah & Tann Singapore’s partner Thea Raman has been appointed as the first woman co-chair of an under-40 group, known as Young International Construction Practitioners (YConstruction). She is the first woman and fourth co-chair to be appointed, as YConstruction aims to expand its reach in Asia.

On her appointment as co-chair at YConstruction:

“Technology has changed the way lawyers and law firms operate. As a young practitioner who grew up with technology and social media, we are hoping YConstruction will create a helpful and attractive platform for young practitioners to come together socially and professionally. I believe my peers and I are in a unique position to shape the future of the construction industry for young practitioners today and I am excited to lead the charge in Asia, where construction arbitration has been and continues to be fast-expanding.”
