The new partner has “a depth of experience across the full range of telecommunications infrastructure and supply work”
Webb Henderson has bolstered its partnership with the promotion of TMT specialist Jordan Cox.
Cox focuses on helping to develop next-generation telecommunications networks and global internet infrastructure such as broadband, satellite and subsea networks. He has worked with leading global companies in the telecommunications, internet and technology space.
A lawyer admitted in both New Zealand and Australia’s New South Wales, Cox has taken on clients in several jurisdictions, including Asia, Australia, the Middle East, Europe and the Pacific Islands. He has provided advice on issues involving restrictive trade practices in New Zealand and Australia’s telecommunications sector.
He has collaborated with the firm’s corporate and finance group in Auckland on matters involving competition law, such as M&A transactions requiring clearance from the NZ Commerce Commission. He has experience handling non-notified mergers as well.
Cox was recognised with an Excellence Award in the Young Private Practice Lawyer of the Year category at the recently concluded NZ Law Awards 2020. He also earned a spot in NZ Lawyer’s first-ever Rising Stars list this year.
“Jordan is a very talented TMT lawyer with a depth of experience across the full range of telecommunications infrastructure and supply work. He is an expert in supply contracts, regulatory frameworks and new infrastructure build arrangements,” said Angus Henderson, Webb Henderson founding partner and TMT head.
Cox has been with the firm since its 2009 launch, initially joining as a new solicitor whose “practising certificate was still in the mail” when the firm first got off the ground, Henderson said.
“His appointment to partnership now is a fantastic demonstration of the opportunities at Webb Henderson for our best young lawyers to develop their careers and move through to partnership,” Henderson said.
Cox ascends to the role on 1 January pending approval from the New Zealand Law Society. With his inclusion, Webb Henderson’s TMT partnership is now four strong.
