Peer review:

Unfortunately I often appear against Alex, he's a class act: highly persuausive, meticulous in his prepaparation and quite frankly the best in his field.

Private client review:

Excellent judgement. Excellent advice. Excellent advocacy. Excellent with clients. Always approachable. Even when he is under pressure, nothing is too much trouble for Alex. He is also great company to be with during those interminable waiting-to-get-into-court sessions.

Peer review:

Alex is our silk of choice for complex children cases. He has impeccable judgement and can extract the most persuasive points from an argument in the blink of an eye. He is well liked and respected by his peers, clients and the judiciary. Not only a convincing advocate and excellent on his feet but charming, kind and a delight to work with.

Alex is exceptional. Judges trust him, clients listen to him and he has a genuine desire to do the best for every family.

Peer review:

One of the very best in the business at what he does. Kind and empathetic with clients. Persuasive and charming in court. Well respected and liked by Judges and opponents. Great tactician - an all round top lawyer and a really decent man to boot.

Peer review:

I have worked with Alex for years and he remains one of the best advocates I have instructed. His manner with clients is excellent, providing strategic and sometimes unwelcome (but realistic) advice with a warmth of approach which means clients listen and trust him. He is an excellent advocate who is respected by the judiciary. I would highly recommend him for complex private law work, and complex care or abduction matters.

Private client review:

I have instructed Alex for many years on some hard fought and complex children cases, so I know him extremely well professionally and believe that I am well placed to provide a reference for him. It is well known within family law circles, and amongst the judiciary, that Alex is right at the pinnacle of the profession. He advocates his client’s case with a disarming charm and deftness but behind it there is a tenacity and a determination to get the best possible outcome for the client. He is excellent to work with and is willing to make time to guide and discuss strategy along the way. He also has a wonderful manner with clients from all walks of life. You know that by instructing Alex you are giving your client the best possible chance of achieving their objectives.

Peer review:

Alex is THE go to children barrister. He is straight-talking, gives fantastic pragmatic, yet strategic, advice. First class advocate. Readily available and extremely approachable.

03 Aug 2018

Peer review:

A calm, almost laconic exterior camouflages a razor sharp intellect, encyclopaedic knowledge of the law and an incisive manner. Alex is much loved by his clients and also by some of their spouses...until they experience his effective cross-examination technique.

Long running family case

Last year I concluded a long running family case which had started two years earlier. The parties were dual nationals and ultra -high net worth. The first problem was a relocation application which was successfully stopped so that their children remained in this country. We went through many hearings in the high court dealing with the child arrangements which needed detailed evidence. There were also parallel financial proceedings. Each of those hearings had a positive outcome for my client and an appeal was also resisted.
