Wendy Chen

Juno Lawyer

LLM (Hons), BCom / LLB (Hons), MInstD



When in-house, I bring my wide-ranging legal experience in industries including commercial, aviation, and funds management. Starting my own business, training in project management, working in non-legal roles such as digital teams ranging from start-up to large corporate has diversified my experience. Through this, I have learned to appreciate different viewpoints and communication styles, as well as commercial thinking and different approaches to innovation.

I believe in the power of collaboration and teamwork – that the effectiveness of a collective is more than the sum of its parts. Conscientious and known for my follow-through and execution, I quickly come up to speed in new situations.

What Wendy Chen's clients say

  • Media Works | Juno Legal

    Wendy joined our legal team as an interim Head of Legal, and did a great job of leading the team, advising the business and assisting with corporate M&A throughout that time. Wendy provided very client-focused advice, and got up to speed with our industry and its needs very quickly. Wendy is not only very organised and structured with her thinking, she also has a very calm head and lovely manner. It was a very enjoyable experience to work with Wendy, and I trusted her completely with the team and to lead them on all legal work across the business.
