She regularly takes instruction at both the domestic and the international level and has been instructed in relation to several offshore disputes in the Caribbean, Channel Islands and Isle of Man. Her respected practice focuses predominantly on advisory work. 
"She's a superb barrister who is very proactive and really goes the extra mile. Lexa will roll her sleeves up, get embedded in the team and show incredible commitment to the case." "She is very bright but also very practical, and clients really love her because she is very clear in her advice and doesn't beat around the bush or dress things up in technical terms. She is switched on, very user-friendly and very good at managing expectations."
