Alex initially completed pupillage with a well-regarded London criminal  set, before becoming a member of a Legal 500 leading set in Kent practising civil law. Alex has been instructed at all levels in the country court and has growing experience in the High Court. Primarily, Alex considers himself to be a trial advocate, having been instructed in countless Fast Track trials, covering RTAs, occupier liability and public liability. It is his thorough case preparation which results in the best possible outcome for each client. 

Outside of traditional PI work, Alex has been instructed on a variety of chancery matters; including drafting statements of case, providing advices, and attendance at trial. 

Having previously qualified as a Chartered Accountant, with one of the Big 4, Alex has a keen eye for the figures and also recognises the commercial realities facing clients.
