Alex’s children law experience has seen him act on cases involving applications for leave to remove to the United States and working on cases involving risks of international child abduction and securing appropriate safeguards (including the biggest financial bond ever reported to permit international travel) in Switzerland, Monaco, France, Dubai and India. He has successfully pursued and obtained findings in proceedings involving the falsification of physical and sexual abuse allegations, coaching and parental alienation.
Alex is able to bring a wealth of experience to his clients to assist them in identifying their aims and objectives and devising a clear and strategic path to obtain them by providing pragmatic and coherent advice. He is adept at working with conciliatory and constructive methods of dispute resolution just as much as he is litigating proceedings when required.
Alex attended Manchester Metropolitan University and obtained a 2:1 in his degree with Law with French. Following the conclusion of his Legal Practice Course, he completed his training contract with a leading family law team in Manchester and qualified as a solicitor in 2015. Alex moved to London in 2016, was promoted to Senior Associate in 2019 and joined Payne Hicks Beach in 2021.
In his spare time, he enjoys travel, running, playing squash and spending time with his family and friends.
