Contact Alex

I was admitted as a Solicitor in April 2004, having obtained an Honours Degree in Business and Finance Law from Brunel University, thereafter completing the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law, Chester.

I am Head of the firm’s Litigation Department, and a Partner at the Gadbrook Park Commercial Office, specialising in Commercial & Civil Litigation and Property/Land Disputes. I have a particular interest in difficult and complex cases, where alternative, novel or creative strategies are required.

I have been involved in a number of reported and leading cases, including (by way of example):-

  • Judicial Review against Local Authority in relation to building dilapidations/collapse.
  • “Relief from Sanctions” Appeal in substantial insurance claim.
  • Nuisance (negligence) action concerning fuel contamination at residential properties.
  • Leading Court of Appeal decision relating to prescriptive rights of way (reported in The Times).
  • Successful Defence of misfeasance claim brought by liquidators against former Directors of failed businesses.

My practice areas are indicative of my broad and extensive experience in many areas of Commercial Litigation and Property Disputes – including contractual disputes, cases against insurers, insolvency litigation, disputes relating to Estates and Inheritance and a particular focus on matters relating to land, property and boundaries. I have a firm and thorough grasp of many of the Commercial intricacies of any case.

I am recognised by the Legal 500 Directory for taking a “meticulous and highly commercial team…always well prepared….and demonstrating an intricate knowledge of the law…”. I have also received a personal endorsement – “bright, resourceful and always ready to fight the clients’ corner”.

I am Chairman of the Tattenhall Cricket Club and I hope (one day!) to score an elusive century. I am also keen, but barely average golfer – and I will maintain my destiny to become manager of Aston Villa FC.

What our clients say about Alex

I would like to thank you for all your work on helping us with this issue....its been a tough one for us as you know. I so wish now you had been with us from the start as I believe we would have reached this point a lot sooner. We appreciate the significant financial saving we made.

HB & Family, Farmer

We are delighted with your excellent service. You grasped our unusual situation very quickly, you picked up on the implications, without us having to spell them all out, and your repeated assertions during our first exchanges… were so very reassuring. Our company needed your expertise. You delivered. Money well spent.

Convoi Exceptionnel

Alex Sandland and Catherine Gregson are both excellent litigators. Not only do they strenuously support their clients and the claims brought by them or against them, they also make every effort to ensure that all avenues of settlement are explored. They maintain an incomparable professionalism in an area of law that is notoriously litigious, whilst ensuring the costs incurred remain entirely proportionate to the issues addressed
