Alex is a second year trainee, due to qualify as a Solicitor at the end of March 2021. He has spent his entire career in the legal profession with Simpson Millar since joining the firm in 2013.
He started his training contract in April 2019 and has completed seats in our Holiday Claims department, helping with one of the group actions we are currently running against TUI.
He's also worked within our dispute resolution team where he has assisted on cases involving professional negligence and commercial litigation.
Whilst working in the dispute resolution team, 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 a 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 eight 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 rubix cube in under 90 seconds. In his down time you’ll find him either on the Xbox or binge-watching Netflix.
