Alexander Macpherson

Call 2000

"He's really good – the quality of his drafting is excellent. He's a very, very good advocate."
(Chambers & Partners 2020)


Alex has advised and litigated in a range of different areas, including sale of goods, fraudulent and negligent misrepresentation, agency agreements, guarantees and partnerships. He has experience of applying for injunctions in the County Court and the High Court.

Alex is regularly instructed by insurers and insureds to advise in coverage disputes arising out of insurance contracts. In 2018 he was instructed to advise the owner of a property which had suffered a catastrophic fire in relation to a £5m claim for an indemnity from the property’s insurers. Following directions being given by the TCC, the claim was compromised at a mediation.

Alex has developed a particular specialisation in franchising disputes, and has acted for both franchisors and franchisees in relation to such issues as termination, restrictive covenants, misrepresentation and interim injunctive relief. In recent years he has advised on and appeared in cases relating to franchise agreements in such diverse areas as snack-vending-machines, driving instruction, dog-training, pizza delivery, kitchen refurbishment and the operation of a gym.
