Company: Webb Henderson
Job title: Senior Associate
Jordan Cox is one of the few specialist telecommunications, media and technology (TMT) lawyers in New Zealand under 35. He has practised in the TMT sector since his admission in 2009; his deep understanding of global and national technology trends underpins his reputation for advising many of New Zealand’s (and the world’s) largest companies on the shifting intersection between law, regulation and technology. He leads the New Zealand TMT practice of Webb Henderson – a practice which is currently ranked as Band 3 by Chambers, Band 3 by Legal 500 and ‘Highly Recommended’ by Asialaw. His leadership of this team is supported by junior staff in New Zealand, as well as its integration with the firm’s sizeable Sydney TMT team from partner level down to juniors. Cox’s TMT practice centres on the development of next generation access networks. He is a longstanding advisor to Chorus on its once-in-a-generation rollout of a fibre network across New Zealand. Beyond his services at home, he also acts as a senior legal advisor to NBN and has contributed to the launch of its high-speed satellite broadband product, which uses two specially constructed satellites at a cost of A$2 billion.
