Alex Creswick

Senior Associate

Before qualifying into Dispute Resolution, the six seat rotation was invaluable for building great connections and friendships across all the departments in London and our international offices (I spent 8 months in Bangkok as a trainee). Those relationships have stood me in excellent stead, especially as DR works hand in hand with our transactional colleagues.

The firm’s collegiate approach is complemented by partners who take a real interest developing my career and have supported me to achieve my goals. I have always been interested in engineering and construction and getting involved in disputes in those sectors during my training contract meant on qualification I knew this was an area I wanted to specialise in. Through the support of the co-heads of dispute resolution in London, I have developed my knowledge, expertise and experience in that area. With renewable energy being a key sector of the firm, many disputes are in that area. One example is the case of PBS v Bester, a biomass power plant termination dispute. Not only were we successful, but this landmark decision, being the first time a fraud defence had been successfully deployed against adjudication enforcement, won us Legal Week’s Construction and Engineering Litigation Team of the Year 2019.
