“The most impressive bit of counsel work I’ve seen; she came up with the most amazing legal arguments.”
Chambers UK (2013) Crime

Practice: Crime, Business Crime and Regulatory

Regulatory

Alexandra represents regulators and professionals in tribunals, and has experience of Judicial Review proceedings arising from tribunal decisions. Her rigorous, detailed approach enables her to distill significant quantities of documents and identify central issues.

Before the General Medical Council (including its Fitness to Practise Panel), General Dental Council and Nursing and Midwifery Council she undertakes cases relating to general and complex misconduct, and thus has experience of calling and cross-examining medical expert witnesses. She advises on charges as well as issues of disclosure.  

Before the Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal and the Accountancy and Actuarial Discipline Board, Alexandra undertakes matters which require her to master relevant technical information.  She has led defending partners in a firm. 

She has extensive experience of successfully representing police officers before the Police Disciplinary Tribunal and Police Appeals Tribunal.  In August 2013 Alexandra completed one of the first appeals to the police Appeals Tribunal under the Unsatisfactory Performance and Attendance Regulations. She has presented seminars on Judicial Review and other issues arising from police conduct hearings.

Alex Felix has experience in representing interested parties at inquests. She has particular expertise in representing professionals during the process.

Sport regulation is another specialist area. In 2013 she advised on an appeal to Sport Resolution in relation to doping and on a referee’s licence withdrawal by the British Board of Boxing Control.  

Alexandra assisted Timothy Dutton QC in his inquiry into Sport England World Class Payment Bureau and has assisted a sport regulator in the drafting of its appeal procedures.

Business Crime

Alexandra brings her meticulous approach to matters ranging from multi-handed mortgage and benefit frauds to allegations of high-value fraudulent trading, money laundering and Companies Act offences.  She prosecutes and defends as a junior alone and as a leading junior.  She has successfully defended in a number of cases including that of a police officer who faced money laundering allegations in excess of £1 million. 

Alexandra is instructed in cases involving complex international trust structures and asset tracing.  She is adept at handling expert accountancy evidence and presenting complex financial matters in a comprehensible way. 

She is highly experienced in confiscation, asset recovery and restraint proceedings under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Crime

Alexandra prosecutes and defends all aspects of general crime, including blackmail, s18 offences, serious violence, murder, sexual offences against adults and children, large scale drugs supply and importation, high value robbery and firearms offences. 

She has significant experience in crimes requiring specialist knowledge and handling of expert witnesses. 

Alexandra has a respected practice in immigration law, with special expertise in facilitation of entry to the UK in respect of young children. In 2013 she was instructed in a series of cases concerning British nationals seeking to circumvent immigration laws by bringing so-called ‘miracle birth’ babies to the UK (e.g. R v Johnson and Ayedun).

She has defended in a high profile corruption case and has particular experience of representing police officers in criminal trials.

Additional Information

Alexandra has published widely in the field of Sport Law. Alexandra was an academic before she called to the Bar with a particular interest in Sport Law.
