" I understand my client's desired outcome then work within budget to achieve it "

Alex was admitted in Western Australia in 2005 and in England & Wales in 2009.

Alex has wide-ranging experience in Perth and the UK.  He worked directly under the Head of Corporate at Scotland’s largest law firm at the time for major institutions (mainly banks) on private equity, investment trust and joint venture deals before transferring to the London branch to work in Mergers & Acquisitions.

Since returning to Western Australia in 2009 he has focussed on general commercial work, including contract negotiations, acquisitions, corporate governance and startups.

Alex manages the practice at Fletcher Law.  He enjoys working at keeping the firm’s clients and staff satisfied and engaged, while learning various business skills (human resources, financial & risk management, marketing, IT).  A psychology degree has, to his surprise, been quite useful.

Harnessing an interest in sustainability, Alex also works on a sustainable transport tech startup called Freewheeler.  It is a digital transportation demand management system – a tracking app that rewards you for walking, cycling and taking public transport.

Outside of work he plays hockey, windsurfs, plays bass, reads books, chases a border collie, tackles weeds etc.
