Derek grew up in Waterloo, Ontario and was called to the Ontario Bar in 2017.  Derek received his B.A. with distinction from Wilfrid Laurier University and his J.D. from Queen's University - completing semesters abroad at the Graduate School of International Studies at Seoul National University and the Faculty of Law at the University of Hong Kong. At law school, he served as a volunteer editor for the Queen's Law Journal, and was the recipient of the Dr. Stanley Harwood McCuaig Scholarship for the highest academic achievement in Property Law as well as the Faculty of Law Dean's Council Diversity Award for substantial contribution to diversity issues.

 

Prior to joining Giffen Lawyers, Derek summered and articled at a mid-sized downtown Toronto firm where he assisted with commercial litigation, corporate, and real estate matters.  Derek's experience as an entrepreneur and part of a multidisciplinary consulting team gives him a unique perspective and insight to his developing commerical litigation practice.
