Tim Fletcher, Uber NZ

Tim Fletcher, Uber NZ

Company: Uber NZ
Job title: Legal counsel

Ending 2019 as a finalist at the NZ Law Awards for Young In-House Lawyer of the Year is just another affirmation of Tim Fletcher’s talent. His transition to sole counsel as head of legal at Uber NZ was a major step up and shift from his legal counsel role at Mercury NZ, where he was part of the team named Innovative Team of the Year at ILANZ awards 2018. At Uber, they are consistently at the forefront of technology and marketplaces, creating fascinating, unique and complex legal challenges. He now has broad responsibility for the provision of strategic legal and commercial support to all of Uber’s business lines in NZ (Rides, Eats and JUMP). He has built very strong relationships with a select number of firms in NZ to support this work. Some of his work highlights in the past 12 months include establishing Uber as a New Zealand company through a complex onshoring project; completing a comprehensive HSW review of Uber’s operations; being a primary advisor for Uber’s business product ‘Uber for Business’ across both Australia and New Zealand; and being trusted to spend three months in California to share lessons from New Zealand and manage the complex regulatory issues that are in play in Uber’s home jurisdiction.
