The Directors of Hamertons Lawyers are proud to announce the promotion of Michael O’Hagan to Director as of the 1 April 2022.
Michael’s appointment adds to the depth and breadth of the skillset amongst the leadership team and with Michael’s outstanding technical skills in the law, the community is in safe hands with him representing it.
Michael hails from recently Award-winning town of Paeroa in the Thames Valley and he remains a small town boy at heart. He graduated from Victoria University of Wellington in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Bachelor of Laws. He was admitted to the bar in December of that year.
Having started his career working as an in-house legal counsel for a District Council in the Waikato, Michael first joined Hamertons in 2013 and returned to the Eastern Bay three and a half years ago after spending several years with a Rotorua law firm.
Michael offers years of experience working in local government and regional law firms. His expertise covers property and commercial conveyancing, commercial structuring and financing, local government matters, and knowledge of a wide range of private client work.
Michael has been married to Amy for the past seven and a half years and they have two children – Aurelia and Ciaran. When he has any spare time, which isn’t often when you have two young children, his passions are a mix of the outdoors – football, duck shooting and camping, and the indoors - reading ,which he admits is mainly fiction and some histories and, wait for it – gaming (who’d have thought!)
Michael loves being a part of the local community and being involved in the Eastern Bay of Plenty and is happy to be home once again.
