Juno Legal has welcomed two more experienced lawyers to the fold as clients increasingly use the firm’s on-demand legal services.

Sarah Dalziell-Clout and Melanie Naulls have joined the NewLaw firm in Wellington. They add to the firm’s already extensive team of lawyers with in-house experience. Helen Mackay, Juno Legal director, explained the firm’s edge especially in today’s business environment.

“The length and breadth of experience that Juno Lawyers have had across the legal profession and wider business community gives them a sophisticated understanding of risk-based decision-making, which in turn makes them better lawyers,” she said. “Many of our clients are seeking to leverage opportunities and solve complex problems at rapid pace and are increasingly turning to on-demand in-house legal services to meet their needs.”

Dalziell-Clout is an expert in TMT, banking, and commercial matters. She earned her LLB (Hons) and BSc from the University of Canterbury and commenced her private practice at MinterEllisonRuddWatts.

She then moved to London and worked in an in-house capacity at Lloyds Bank. She has also been a legal and contract management lawyer with Alcatel-Lucent. She joined Juno from Equestrian Sports New Zealand, where she was its “high performance director.”

Naulls earned her LLB (Hons) from Victoria University of Wellington before starting her legal career at Buddle Findlay. She then moved to leadership roles in utility and infrastructure companies in New Zealand, Australia, and the UK, including as senior legal adviser at Contact Energy and general counsel at John Holland.

She moves to Juno from the Southern District Health Board, where she was the sole legal counsel supporting the operational and organisational demands of two major hospitals. With more than two decades of experience, Naulls is an expert in the private and public sectors.
