On 3 December 2020, as a session in our ReinventED Legal Business: The Case Studies series, Terri Mottershead, Executive Director, Centre for Legal Innovation (Australia, New Zealand and Asia-Pacific), spoke with Helen Mackay, Director, Juno Legal.
Juno is a hybrid law firm and on-demand legal services business. The team comprises 21 experienced in-house lawyers and two legal professionals who serve a range of large corporates, high growth companies and public sector clients across New Zealand and beyond.
Juno's services offerings are client-focused and comprise dedicated in-house legal support, managed legal services, legal advisory, legaltech consulting and bespoke solutions. Juno places its people at the centre of everything it does. Each Juno lawyer determines their own hours of work in consultation with clients, to have full control of their careers. Juno's flat structure and egalitarian approach promotes engagement and it has no unpaid overtime. Juno's remuneration approach promotes initiative and social contribution.
Team members develop practice areas that interest them and are rewarded for business development efforts. 1% of profits are donated to each lawyer’s charity of choice. It is a collegial and supportive environment where team members work collaboratively on client and internal projects and provide expertise and peer review across the firm. Juno constantly innovates within its own business and seeks to enhance its client and employee experience.
Recognition and acknowledgement of Juno’s success in building its vision has seen the firm awarded Employer of Choice <50 lawyers at the 2018 New Zealand Law Awards, Finalist in the same category in the 2019 and 2020 NZ Law Awards, one of New Zealand’s most innovative firms in 2018 and 2019 by NZ Lawyer and NZ Lawyer Employer of Choice 2020.
