I leverage the corporate and commercial experiences gained in both private practice and in-house legal roles within New Zealand and in the United Kingdom, to provide practical commercial legal advice. I partner my commercial legal experience with an understanding of software development and a strong interest in technologies - I believe there is considerable scope for technology to improve the delivery of in-house legal services. My experience researching and developing software, as well as my time within different in-house teams across a range of different businesses, has afforded me the opportunity to understand the pain points of in-house legal functions, automate processes and improve systems. My goal is to help as many in-house legal functions to focus on adding value to their respective business in a collaborative way.

What Mitch Julian's clients say
Mitch is a highly commercial, helpful and client focused lawyer. He helped introduce a new contract management system and had a strong understanding of legal technology which helped with our digital transformation and innovation roadmap.
General Counsel, Office Max
Mitch has been an incredible asset to both our legal team and the MediaWorks business. He began working for us on a merger transaction over 12 months ago and then we just kept finding reasons to keep him around. His commercial nous and problem solving abilities are true strengths. He is a pleasure to work with and would be a good fit for any commercial or legal team.
