Margot Lyons

Juno Lawyer



I am an experienced commercial lawyer who has worked in in-house and private practice roles across the public and private sectors. Most recently I supported the commercial/corporate and regulatory legal teams at MBIE doing a wide range of commercial, regulatory and compliance work. In my earlier career, I focused primarily on commercial property work; advising clients across a broad range of industries including property developers and investors, banks, insurance companies, supermarkets, telcos, airports, regional authorities, and central and local government.

I am adaptable and able to tackle new situations and tasks with confidence. I enjoy stripping away ambiguity and legalese from documents and advice and presenting clients with solutions they can understand.
