Alex joined asb law in 2019 and is an Associate within the Corporate Finance team.
Alexander offers legal advice on a range of corporate finance areas including mergers and acquisitions, fundraising (debt finance and private equity investment), company restructuring, joint ventures, share options schemes and corporate lending.
He works with owners and management teams of businesses in a variety of sectors and of all sizes, from large market leaders, to smaller owner-managed business.
Before joining asb law he spent time at Thomson Snell & Passmore and Morrisons Solicitors. He completed his training at Clarkson Wright & Jakes Solicitors where he found an interest in corporate law due to the varied nature of work and diverse client base.
One of Alex’s recent work highlights was advising the shareholders of one of the UK's leading providers of mechanical and electrical engineering for the rail and transport sector on the sale of their shares to a private equity backed leading service provider to essential infrastructure markets in the UK and Ireland. He also advised the continuing senior management team on the terms of their future relationship with the buyer’s group after completion. He engaged with the sellers prior to going to market to help them navigate legal issues arising during negotiations and early due diligence. Getting a head start on due diligence and resolving issues early on meant they were able to complete the sale within a month of signing heads of terms.
Alexander holds a professional membership with the Kent Law Society and is a Kent Junior Lawyers Division Committee member.
Away from the office Alexander is a mentor for students at the University of Kent and enjoys football and music.
