Alex Potts QC has a wide-ranging commercial litigation and arbitration practice.
Alex is admitted as both a barrister and an attorney in Bermuda, and in England and Wales (where he was appointed as a Queen's Counsel in 2018, in recognition of his excellence as a leading advocate).
Alex has previously been admitted as a barrister and attorney of the Cayman Islands, but he does not currently practice Cayman Islands law save on an ad hoc admission basis.
With a particular focus on disputes, Alex handles matters in the fields of banking, financial services, investment funds, insurance, professional negligence, company law, contracts, trusts, white collar crime, asset recovery, and contentious insolvency; his practice also extends to matters of public, constitutional and administrative, regulatory, telecommunications, employment, planning, and environmental law.
Alex is available to accept instructions as an advocate, advisor, expert witness, arbitrator, or mediator.
Alex is also willing to provide second opinions and QC's opinions, and to conduct early neutral valuations in appropriate cases.
