Amanda McDermott

Lawyer

Both clients and colleagues of the profession are quick to recognise Amanda as a talented young lawyer who brings both personality and passion to her work. It is no surprise that Amanda has rapidly diversified her own independent client base well beyond the usual standard of her years.

Amanda’s practice includes a range of commercial litigation matters with a particular focus on shareholder actions and corporate disputes. Amanda understands that successful litigation requires skilful judgment and an appreciation of her clients’ businesses. She also works closely with clients providing front end commercial structuring advices.

Amanda prides herself in producing work of an excellent standard, remaining focussed achieving commercial outcomes at the earliest possible time and with the least expense to her clients.

Maintaining strong client relationships is paramount to Amanda.  She is skilled in effectively communicating with her clients and simplifying legal processes and procedural steps as required.

Since the date of her admission, Amanda has welcomed the opportunity to undertake appearance work and has appeared as an advocate across the state and federal Courts and Tribunals. Outside of her experience in private practice,  Amanda has enjoyed volunteering at a range of community legal centres and her earlier roles in in the criminal justice system.

When Amanda is not working, her favourite pastimes are traveling, scuba diving (and any other aqua related sport), hiking, spending time with her Kelpie, Hughie, and going to the footy to see Carlton play with her Dad and older brothers.
