Dermot can add value to corporate and commercial clients by providing quality, cost effective advice on a broad range of matters including acquisitions and sales of business and commercial property, trusts and companies, stamp duty and land tax issues, shareholder and partnership agreements, restructures, franchising, intellectual property (including trademarks and licence agreements), retail and commercial leasing.

After completing a Summer Clerkship with Heinz & Partners in 2013, Dermot returned for a permanent position, having enjoyed the friendly nature of the Firm and the Ballarat lifestyle.

Since returning, Dermot has entrenched himself in the local community, taking on official board positions that allow him to share his professional skills with community groups in the region he loves. 

When not meeting his client’s commercial law needs, Dermot runs marathons, plays local football and embraces his love of travel.
