Capability
I’m passionate about the value that great lawyers create when they work inside and alongside their client organisations. I help companies and public sector entities get optimal value from their legal services, effectively manage risk and achieve high performance through their in-house legal team. With more than 20 years’ experience as an in-house lawyer in New Zealand and the UK (including seven years leading the professional association for in-house lawyers), I believe in the strategic firepower of business advice delivered by highly experienced in-house lawyers. My focus is to seamlessly connect Juno lawyers into organisations and improve the strategy, design and performance of in-house legal functions.
