Juno Legal

Juno Legal
Employer of Choice 2020

Juno Legal ensures its people can take control of their career and become part of a team that values their wellbeing.

To support Juno staff’s professional and personal development, the firm has co-designed a program that will assist them not just to become better legal professionals but also better people. Recent courses offered include Te Reo and ti kanga Maori, leadership, coaching, and courses covering pure legal skills.

Juno Legal’s model is based on full autonomy and flexibility, so although the firm has a completely flat structure, lawyers are encouraged and supported to move into more demanding and challenging client engagements that enable them to stretch and lead others.

Juno staff enjoy the benefits of being able to work flexibly. Each lawyer chooses their own hours and days of work in consultation with clients and determines their overall capacity across the year, allowing them to do other things that matter to them, including caring for their kids or elderly parents, volunteer and governance roles, or fulfilling their other passions like writing novels.

This flexible model is supported by Juno’s use of technology, such as Office 365 SharePoint for document storage and collaboration, Microsoft Teams for internal chat and online team meetings, and a range of other cloud-based solutions including Xero, ActiveCollab, MailChimp, HubSpot, and SurveyMonkey to run the firm. These also allow the firm to operate as a paperless, fully cloud-based modern firm.

Juno staff are remunerated in at least the upper quartile of the market based on equivalent roles in in-house legal practice and private practice. The firm’s remuneration structure promotes initiative and social contribution, with team members given the autonomy to develop practice areas that interest them and are rewarded for business development efforts with those clients they attract. One per cent of firm profits are donated to a charity or cause supported by each different lawyer or practice professional. Contribution across the team, meanwhile, is recognised in a number of monetary and non-monetary ways – from bonuses and incentive rewards through to people being sent Juno Gin and Whittakers chocolate.
