"He's really good – the quality of his drafting is excellent. He's a very, very good advocate."

Alex is flexible as to his role in resolving disputes, and is prepared to provide succinct informal advice at short notice, as well as advising in a more traditional manner in writing or in conference. He is accustomed both to handling his own cases (often of substantial value) and to being part of a counsel team.
