About Alexander

I have a background in the law of divorce and financial settlements, having been this firm's head of family law for many years before concentrating on developing and managing other aspects of the firm.

My significant exposure within the divorce sphere to high net worth assets, businesses and pensions led me to develop expertise in advising clients as to what measures they should put in place to plan and protect for their future, which include:

  • Wills
  • Lasting Powers of Attorneys
  • General Powers of Attorneys
  • Advance Decisions
  • General Life-time planning

I can offer specialist advice in this regard and my background knowledge, assists greatly when protecting inheritance for the next generation from divorce and against other issues which may arise, such as bankruptcy and care home fees.

What clients say about Alexander:

"Thank you very much for all your hard work, help and advice. Without your belief and knowledge, I would not have been able to emotionally get through the last six months. To get this brilliant result is very much appreciated and I can now put this behind me. It has been a pleasure to work with you and your very polite and helpful staff. Thank you."

"I would like to thank you for all your hard work these past almost 2 years through what has been a very acrimonious divorce. You have been very supportive both professionally and on a personal level - a real asset to Awdry, Bailey and Douglas."

Examples of work:

  • Preparing complex Wills with a view to providing protection: for children from first marriages, against spendthrift beneficiaries, against the bankruptcy of beneficiaries, against care home fees.
  • Avoiding the costs of a Final Hearing by reaching a Divorce Settlement regarding a case with complex business structures to include overseas companies and assets.
  • Uncovering assets in overseas Jurisdictions and thereby increasing the financial settlement for my client.
  • Success at a Final Hearing for a parent who was bring thwarted in having a loving and meaningful relationship with their child by the other parent. The other parent then decided to Appeal the Judgement and I successfully defended it, on behalf of my client.

3 Things people don't know about you

I am a fan of Rugby and very much enjoy going to watch and support Devizes RFC, for whom I used to play.

Weather and time permitting, I also enjoy the occasional round of golf; it's a shame that my game doesn't live up to my expectations.

I am a family man and relish the opportunity of spending quality time with my wife, and two young daughters. It amazes me just how different they are as siblings, and it is fair to say, that they keep me on my toes.
