Anthea Herron

Juno Legal has signed up its first Christchurch-based lawyer, according to the New Zealand Law Society.

Anthea Herron comes in with more than 25 years of experience in commercial law. She is an expert in commercial contract management, drafting and negotiation, M&A, governance, telecommunications, cybersecurity and broadcasting services.

She has served both in private and in-house roles, not just in New Zealand but overseas as well. She was the in-house counsel on secondment for DS Smith in London, and was recently the legal counsel for Kordia Limited.

Having handled the New Zealand business and the legal and regulatory issues relating to Kordia Limited’s various products and services, Herron has experience dealing with matters involving Internet of Things and critical network infrastructure solutions.

She has handled several industries throughout her career, and worked with companies like Orcon Internet, Stevenson Group and New Zealand Funds Management.

Prior to joining Juno Legal, Herron served at a number of notable firms, including Bell Gully, Allen & Overy in London and Corrs Chambers Westgarth in Sydney.

She is currently chair of the board of trustees at Medbury School in Christchurch.

Herron’s hiring is another step in Juno Legal’s initiative to strengthen its roster across New Zealand. In March, the firm welcomed in-house legal expert Sabina Bickelmann to the team in Auckland. Sarah Dalziell-Clout and Melanie Naulls also joined the Wellington office in February.

Recently, the firm was listed among NZ Lawyer’s Innovative Firms for 2020.
