‘Never underestimate the power of laughing — and smiling,’ says Alexander when asked to describe how she maintains her zest for family law. A particularly personable and level-headed expert in HNW financial cases, the head of the Forsters family team also handles children’s cases and advises unmarried couples on cohabitation issues and pre-nups. She’s had big wins since qualifying in 1996 — including 2014’s Thiry v Thiry — acting for the wife against the ‘extremely difficult’ husband who failed to engage with the court. She won great praise from the presiding judge and peers alike. ‘We had to prepare for every eventuality, but we couldn’t have done better,’ she says. ‘It went far beyond anything we thought we would get.’
