About Alexandra

I take pride in providing my clients with stability, clarity and direction during one of the most difficult times in their lives. My passion for family law is fuelled by my personal experience with parental divorce – it taught me to strike the right balance between being empathetic and strategic.

Alexandra joined Russell-Cooke in May 2023 upon qualification as a solicitor, having undertaken her training with a leading family law firm.
Prior to her training contract, Alexandra worked as a paralegal in the private client department of a leading London tier 1 firm, where she assisted on a complex multi-jurisdictional family dispute involving ultra-high-net-worth individuals.

Alexandra's international background, coupled with her language skills, allows her to empathise with clients’ diverse cultural perspectives and needs. She advises clients on all aspects of family law. This includes divorce and separation, financial settlements, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements & cohabitation disputes. She also advises on matters involving children and family law act injunctions.

Alexandra regularly works with the senior members of the team to advise on more complex matters, including those that involve complex cross-border asset structures.

Alexandra works hard to resolve matters in the most constructive and amicable manner. However, if the court route is required, she will be a strong advocate to ensure that her client’s interests are represented.
