Derry joined Assegaf Hamzah & Partners in March 2012 as an intern and, thanks to his hard work and legal acumen, was made an associate shortly afterwards.

He is now a member of the firm’s M&A Practice Group. However, in line with the firm’s policy of exposing young lawyers to as much cross-specialization experience as possible, he also frequently works on capital markets and FDI matters.

During his time at Assegaf Hamzah, he has gained invaluable experience conducting legal research, due diligence exercises, and liaising with governmental and regulatory authorities.

He is currently busy on a number of upcoming IPOs and acquisitions. Besides project work, he also regularly provides legal opinions to clients operating in the mining, oil and gas, and telecommunications sectors.
