Shepherd and Wedderburn hires telecoms specialist
Law firm Shepherd and Wedderburn has hired telecommunications specialist Gordon Moir from niche international practice Webb Henderson.
Moir becomes a partner in the commercial disputes, regulation and markets team, working out of the firm’s London and Edinburgh offices, and at the offices of overseas clients. He brings with him a team of three.
In 2011, Moir set up the London operation of Australasian firm Webb Henderson. Clients included BT, Sky, Nominet and AT&T.
Highly regarded in the telecoms sector, Moir has previously worked in private practice at McGrigors and Ashurst and in-house as general counsel at BT Retail, and also as BT group head of anti-trust and regulatory law.
Stephen Gibb, chief executive, says: “The recent legal and regulatory changes in the UK offer scope for using competition law to protect businesses as well as to open up new market opportunities. This combined with the increased investigatory powers of the CMA has pushed competition law up the risk management agenda for businesses. The outcome is a surge in demand for regulatory and competition advice. Gordon joins our London office at a time of growth and investment in our UK and International practice."
Moir says: “Having spent the last few years in a niche international telecoms regulatory firm, the attraction of joining Shepherd and Wedderburn is its full service offering, strong UK and international client base and the opportunity of working with an exceptional team of competition and regulation specialists."
