Alex has been recognised in the Legal 500 UK for several years now as a ‘Rising Star UK’ in the field of commercial litigation in Newcastle.
An experienced litigator, Alex deals with a broad range of commercial disputes for corporate clients and individuals in relation to a variety of contentious issues including shareholder disputes, professional negligence, data protection, intellectual property and reputational issues and general commercial contracts. Alex has recently been involved with high court claims in relation to high-value breach of warranty claims, negligent investment advice and data protection.
Alex always works to support her clients in trying to avoid disputes if possible or to resolve disputes in a practical and cost-effective way.
Alex took on a complex and contentious international case for me and managed it with care and great attention to detail. Alex always provided me with clear advice and guidance which helped us navigate a difficult matter. I have no hesitation in recommending Alex for contentious probate work.
As one of very few North East lawyers truly qualified to advise on inheritance disputes, Alex has helped many business owners, senior executives, professionals and other wealthy individuals with contentious probate.
Alex has completed the Association of Contentious Trusts and Probate 3-year course and is one of only a few advisers in the region to have done so.
Of course, such matters are always sensitive, personal and potentially stressful, so it helps that Alex is also an experienced commercial litigation lawyer. From multi-million-pound high court claims to employment tribunals, Alex is at home handling disputes of all shapes and sizes with confidence, discretion and, if necessary, tenacity.
It also means she understands both business and personal needs, with the expertise and people skills to guide you through any inheritance issue.
