Overview

Alex has a broad practice in the fields of business and property law, crime and regulation. He has experience of a wide range of fields, including commercial claims, complex landlord and tenant disputes, criminal prosecution and defence, and regulatory matters. Where necessary, he can advise on the public law aspects of claims.

His busy practice spans the Crown and County Courts, and the High Court, as well as specialist tribunals such as the First Tier Tribunal. Alex likes to advise early on in a case, to work with his solicitors and clients to ensure the case is ready from the start. That said, his ability to think on his feet means he can pick up a brief at short notice and put matters back on track.
