Alex Pritchard-Jones

Viewing: Business and Property for Alex Pritchard-Jones

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 clients from individuals and businesses to large corporations. As well as experience of high value cases in the High Court and the County Court, he 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 much 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. He also runs, with the Barcelona Marathon being his most recent achievement.
