Sarah Dalziell-Clout

Juno Lawyer

LLB (Hons), BSC



I am an experienced commercial and corporate lawyer with extensive in-house experience across a wide range of industries including banking, IT and telecommunications and logistics. I also have leadership and strategic experience outside of the law from my more recent director-level role within high performance sport, managing a global high performance programme and team. I recognise acutely the importance of understanding the business context and working closely with stakeholders to achieve pragmatic results within legal boundaries. At a personal level, I place significant value on “team” while upholding strong values and professionalism in all that I do.

What Sarah Dalziell-Clout's clients say

  • NZ Post | Juno Legal

    Sarah was an exceptional fit for our team. She joined us to backfill the role of a member of the team who was working fulltime on a strategic project. We frequently had to remind ourselves that, sadly, Sarah wasn't a permanent member of the team. When her contract ended (after many extensions), I had colleagues across the business come to me aghast that I hadn't managed to keep her with us forever! Sarah brought a pragmatic, solutions-based approach to her work. Her experience advising on large, complex IT contracts was invaluable. Sarah's work was always of exceptional quality, delivered in a timely and easy-going manner. She is extremely astute and can spot those issues that need a broader conversation, and those which require a more low-key, risk-based response. She was "one of us" through the vicissitudes of Covid lockdowns and beyond.

    Sarah joined our team remotely and I really appreciate the work that she put in to support us at a very busy time. She worked well independently, in what was difficult circumstances to operate in. She was able to ease the pressure which was brilliant.
