Instruct Alex



Alex has recently joined Chambers from a Chambers based in the South West of England. He maintains strong links with that area but has moved to London to develop a more cental practice to the UK and to further his interests in international work. 

Alex is both down to earth, approachable and client focused. He consistently receives excellent reviews from those instruct him as well as their clients. A tenacious advocate who represents his clients interests without hesitation or fear. 



Alex has a down to earth ability that enables him to put complex across as simple and give full clear, reasoned explanations for quick and easy understanding of complex issues. He is brilliant with lay clients and quickly inspires confidence in his approach and with his understanding of the subject at hand. As an advocate he is prepared and quick on his feet with a well-rounded understanding of his papers and brief, he is definitely an impressive advocate to watch in court.

Alex is routinely instructed in Family Court private law proceedings. He accepts an array of instructions including cases of a complex and contested nature in financial disputes (including FDR’s and Final Hearings), dispute resolution, interim care orders, contact proceedings, occupation orders, urgent injunctions, fact finding and final hearings.

Alex has strong experience with High Conflict Family Cases, Non-Molestation orders, Protection from Harassment applications and Domestic violence in general. He has a keen interest in cases with an international element including jurisdiction and cross border issues as well as child abduction matters.

Alex is always happy to discuss cases with professionals prior to instruction and has a good reputation for helping deal with issues before they become problematic through his collegiate approach to work.



Civil Litigation:

Alex has a broad civil law practice having specialised for many years in personal injury and clinical negligence as well as contract, public liability claims and international jurisdiction matters. His ability to offer pragmatic, understandable, solid advice while easily striking up a good rapport with his clients are key factors in his success in practice.

In his clinical negligence practice Alex has had particular success and experience with cases involving beauty therapy (botox fillers, hair dye and tanning) but will take instruction on clinical negligence matters generally (including obstetrics, orthopaedics and surgical).

Alex’s employer liability practice spans many years of representing claimants injured whilst at work across a broad range of working environments from nursing homes, hospitals, schools, light and heavy industry and in hospitality (hotels / public houses).

Alex is highly skilled at getting to the core claims quickly and clinically. His ability to rapidly increase the likelihood of success in civil claims has earned him an enviable reputation within his fields of work and a strong solicitor following.
