Career

Alex heads up both the Banking and Finance Team and the Real Estate Finance Team.

Shortly after qualification, Alex moved to Amsterdam and worked there for six years as an English qualified solicitor, acting on English law transactions, predominantly for Dutch lenders and concentrating on leverage finance, acquisition finance and conventional lending. Alex moved to an English global law firm in 2007, and continued to work in Amsterdam, but focusing more on acting for borrowers, and dealing with a broader range of finance matters – including project finance, renewable energy finance (wind farms and solar panels) and trade finance – whilst continuing to act on conventional lending transactions and also for lenders. Alex returned to London in 2011, and in doing so broadened her experience to real estate finance, funds lending and Islamic finance.

Alex joined Birketts in September 2017. She works for both borrowers and lenders at Birketts and on a wide range of financing transactions. In particular, Alex acts on a lot of real estate finance transactions – both development and investment – and works closely with the property, planning and construction teams – as well as others, throughout Birketts.
