Dermot Ross Finance and Corporate Law Auckland New Zealand

Dermot Ross

Welcome to Dermot Ross & Co

Dermot Ross Finance and Corporate Law | Auckland Commercial Lawyer


Our Law Practice

The practice was formed in April 2013 by Dermot Ross, a well-known highly regarded commercial lawyer who spent over 27 years as a partner in two of New Zealand’s leading commercial law firms, Buddle Findlay (from 1985 to 2000) and Chapman Tripp (from 2000 to 2013).  Dermot brings his considerable experience to bear for the benefit of the firm’s clients.

Our Unique Value Proposition

Our unique value proposition is to offer the quality of service of a senior partner of a major New Zealand law firm, but without a number of the features associated with a major law practice.  Thus Dermot Ross & Co can offer:

  • A lower hourly rate
  • Dealing with only one lawyer, with no junior lawyers involved on a transaction or client matter
  • A much reduced possibility of conflicts of interest
  • Much lower overheads in terms of plush premises and services 

Dermot offers a personal one‑on‑one experience with clients. You will deal with him and him alone and he will be fully accountable. At Dermot Ross & Co you will not be fobbed off to a junior lawyer.

Dermot has made informal arrangements with a number of law practices of differing sizes, allowing him to access other areas of expertise.  Those other lawyers will provide their services to Dermot Ross & Co, but the interface will always be between Dermot and the client.


Dermot’s aim is to provide a Rolls Royce service delivery for a more affordably priced model.
