Deals Yearbook 2022: Murray Cox, Weil – partner since 2016

Why did you decide to become an M&A lawyer? Was there anyone in particular who inspired you early on in your career?
I did my training contract at a firm in South Africa where I had a lot of exposure early on in my career to different kinds of work. I saw then that doing M&A would involve meeting lots of interesting people and learning about different kinds of businesses. William Underhill at Slaughter and May is still a huge inspiration.
