Alex Jakubowski

Civil and Commercial Mediator

   

Practice Overview

Alex became accredited by the ADR Group in 2006 and has mediated regularly since then.  

 

Alex has had a varied litigation career.  He has acted for private individuals, manufacturers, retailers, public sector, banks, building societies, sports clubs and insurers. 

 

He has particular experience of contractual disputes, breach of warranty, financial services disputes, professional negligence, agency disputes and IT disputes.  

 

Alex also has a good understanding of litigation funding, insurance, solicitors’ retainers and costs law.  Indeed, he has advised ATE insurers and funders on case assessments and their own documentation.  He therefore understands the effect that these factors can have on a negotiation.
