Respected public-sector lawyer joins Juno Legal

Juno Legal has grown again, welcoming a well-respected public-sector lawyer in Wellington.

Jeremy Ford has joined the firm from the Earthquake Commission, where he spent seven years as general counsel and chief legal adviser. At the commission, he established and headed a high-performing legal team and provided strategic advice to the board.

For six years, he was also senior solicitor at the Department of Building and Housing, which he joined after starting his career at Wynn Williams and at Trowers Hamlins in London.

“Jeremy’s technical skill set, leadership capability and affable, assured manner make him a sought after senior lawyer who has earned strong trust and confidence across the public sector. We are delighted to welcome him to the team and also congratulate him on his well-deserved nomination as ILANZ Public Sector In-House Lawyer of the Year,” said Helen Mackay, Juno director.

The NewLaw firm said that Ford’s experience in navigating complex situations, while upholding the public-sector code of conduct, positions him well to advise across a range of matters requiring significant expertise.

The appointment comes after Juno Legal expanded to the South Island, adding Jenny Ross in Dunedin. The firm also recently boosted its teams in Auckland and Wellington.
