Alex's broad practice focusses heavily on public law and human rights, with an emphasis on social housing, planning and licensing, but also includes aspects of commercial and information law.
Alex advises, drafts and regularly appears in both the civil and criminal courts for central and local government and private clients. His work with senior members of Chambers has given him experience of appellate litigation at Court of Appeal and Supreme Court level.
Clients value Alex's analytical ability and forensic approach to the issues. He is often instructed to appear, unled, against far more experienced barristers. As one instructing solicitor has commented:
"Alex conducted a complex planning case with calmness, thoroughness and politeness. His closing submissions were excellent and unravelled some complex issues that enabled the court to understand the case much better. I have no doubt that his advocacy was a significant reason for our success. I shall be instructing Alex again and have already recommended him to others."
