Background

Alex Pritchard-Jones

Call: 2015

Alex Pritchard-Jones is an experienced practitioner in the fields of commercial dispute resolution, financial services, trusts and estates, and insolvency. Alex specialises in cases that require detailed legal argument and hard fought trials.

Alex has been instructed in emergency out of hours High Court injunction applications, as well as multi- track trials and associated applications necessary to win. Alex gives comprehensive advice at the start of a case and is a specialist at getting to grips with a case and drafting pleadings within tight timeframes. Alex’s experience working in the City of London before becoming a barrister means he has a good understanding of the needs of business clients working.

From 2016 to 2022, Alex also practised in crime and so has advocacy experience well beyond that often associated with his level of call.

Expertise

Business & Property

Alex graduated with a First Class Degree, after which he studied for a Masters at the University of Oxford. He has a broad business and property practice, advising individuals and businesses, as well as charities, landlords and executors. He has significant experience of high value cases in the High Court and the County Court, and advises in conferences or in writing, drafts statements of case, and provides strategic advice about the conduct of cases generally.

Before becoming a barrister, Alex gained experience in the financial world. He worked for JP Morgan Chase in the remediation project, based in Canary Wharf and the City of London. He worked closely with investment and merchant bankers, so understands the financial world. He also was at Lloyds Bank, dealing with Interest Rate Hedging Products, under a Financial Conduct Authority mandated review.

During Bar School Alex was a paralegal in a leading London criminal law firm, which meant he has represented individuals accused of criminal offences across London police stations. Much of this work was about criminal financial fraud cases, which has a useful application to his business and property practice.

Outside of the Bar, Alex is the Leader of Birmingham Central Read Easy, an organisation that teaches adults to learn to read.
