Alex has been described by her clients as a ‘very impressive’ advocate with a ‘robust’ approach to drafting. She accepts instructions in Chambers’ key practice areas on behalf of claimants and defendants alike, with particular experience and interest in personal injury law.
Alex regularly delivers seminars (and particularly in the midst or wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, webinars) on developments within civil law. Recent topics include employers’ liability, occupiers’ liability and procedural changes following the implementation and progress of the Damages Claims Portal.
Alex studied law at the University of Leeds. She graduated in 2013 with a first class degree in the top 5% of her year and was awarded the University Prize for Jurisprudence. She completed the BPTC in London and was awarded a Harmsworth Scholarship by the Middle Temple.
Prior to joining Ropewalk Chambers, Alex worked within litigation teams in law firms based in the UK and abroad, gained experience as a County Court advocate and undertook pro bono casework for the Free Representation Unit and Citizens Advice Bureau.
Prior to a career in law, Alex lived and worked in Shenyang, China as an English language teacher, obtaining a teaching qualification from Beijing University of International Business and Economics in 2009.
Away from the Bar, you will likely find Alex wakeboarding or attempting to walk her enormous Alaskan malamute dog. She also (for unknown reasons) enjoys completing gruelling fitness challenges, including most recently Tough Mudder, Rough Runner and a half marathon. Alex volunteers as a legal consultant on the Consultative Council of a national children’s charity.
