More about Alex

Alex has built a solid track record of success in the areas of maritime/admiralty, logistics, transportation, labor and employment and corporate litigation. 

His primary focus is providing leadership in the areas of risk management, civil litigation, contract analysis, document drafting, and e-discovery in order to meet the client’s needs. He is recognized by his clients for his attention to detail and ability to actively listen and address their concerns with fresh, yet grounded approach to interpreting laws and working within the legal system to achieve their goals. 

Alex has extensive experience conducting on-site investigations, including marine casualties, cargo and personal injury claims, draft reports detailing applicable law, legal strategy, and possible outcomes. He has represented clients before government agencies, including EEOC, NLRB, U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency, and U.S. Coast Guard to minimize the impact of agency action on business operations and to mitigate potential liability.

Alex is admitted to practice in multiple jurisdictions including Texas, Puerto Rico, Pennsylvania, and multiple United States Federal Courts.

Alex is also fluent in Spanish.

We are working with clients across our international network to help them minimise the impact of COVID-19 on their business and to prepare for what's next. To find out more, visit our dedicated Covid-19 hub.


The Houston office, which opened on 3 January 2017, established the firm's first office in the USA when HFW merged with leading Texas-based energy and marine firm Legge, Farrow, Kimmitt, McGrath & Brown LLP, a firm with whom we have been successfully collaborating for several years.

This is a significant strategic development for the firm, underlining the fact that Houston is an important geographical market for HFW and its clients, being a key touchpoint for several of the firm's chosen sectors, including energy, marine and insurance in particular.
