As an experienced litigator, Alex has advised charities and social enterprises on various types of claim, including board disputes, breach of contract, negligence, infringement of intellectual property rights and debt recovery.  In addition, as an associate member of ACTAPS (the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists), Alex is also one of very few North East lawyers truly qualified to advise charities on contested legacies, inheritance disputes and ex gratia payments.

So when it comes to experience in dispute resolution, Alex has certainly covered some ground.

Speaking of covering ground, fitness enthusiast Alex has completed numerous half marathons, marathons and leads our running club – the Muckle Runners.  In what’s left of her spare time, Alex also enjoys cooking, eating out, walking her dog along Northumberland’s incredible coastline and travelling abroad as often as she can.
