Practice notes

Alex is an associate in our Litigation & Dispute Management group, specialising in commercial litigation. In addition and having successfully completed the Society for Computers and Law "Foundations of IT Law" programme, Alex is an active member of Eversheds Sutherland's technology, media and telecommunications sector.

Alex's recent experience includes:

  • acting as lead associate from the first instruction (responding to a freezing injunction application) to trial in the Commercial Court on an £80m dispute, defending against allegations of breach of contract, economic duress, conspiracy and intimidation;
  • advising a listed company in relation to its supposed breaches of a suite of SAP software licences due to its use of third party applications which, in turn, trigger functionality within SAP's software;
  • acting for a major online retailer through to a successful mediation with its marketing service provider, in relation to a dispute concerning the level of commission owed to the latter in respect of its retargeted websales; and
  • acting for leading independent communications provider through mediation and ultimately settlement of its dispute with its provider of financial management software (in which the client was accused of breaching its software licence, as a result of the way in which it provided disaster recovery services for a third party).

Whilst Alex maintains a broad litigation practice, he is also particularly experienced in defamation and in assisting clients with general reputation management issues, predominantly being defamation which has occurred online and in the media (including print and television).
