Data Protection Solicitor
Alex is a Data Protection Solicitor, who has spent his entire legal career with Simpson Millar since joining the firm in 2013.
He qualified as a Solicitor in April 2021, following successful completion of his training contract with Simpson Millar, in which he undertook seats in our Holiday Claims department, Serious Personal Injury, Dispute Resolution and Data Breach teams.
It was whilst working in the dispute resolution team that Alex built on his keen interest in privacy law including Data Breach Claims.
Alex has successfully got compensation for clients who have had their personal data breached and he continues to do so now for clients involved in the EasyJet Data breach.
Before starting his training contract in April 2019, Alex was managing both the Road Traffic and EL/PL portal teams as well handling his own case load of Road Traffic Accident Claims. He always looked for ways to resolve disputes for his clients, but if resolution wasn’t possible, he would take matters to Court.
Alex studied Law at Manchester Metropolitan University, before obtaining his Legal Practicing Certificate from the University of Law.
Interests outside of work
Alex is an avid sports fan in particular of football and the NFL, supporting Manchester United and the Philadelphia Eagles. He has also been running an NFL fantasy league with his friends for the past 10 years.
A keen traveller, he’s been able to chalk off Budapest, Geneva, Nice, Monte Carlo and Cyprus in recent years. He’s hoping to take an extended holiday to Australia in the near future.
He really enjoys going to see live music, and can play the drums, as well as solve a Rubik's Cube in under 90 seconds. In his downtime, you’ll find him either on the Xbox or binge-watching Netflix, except for Thursdays where he will be playing Tennis.
