Alex’s experience includes litigation matters in state and federal courts across the country.  He is currently handling disputes in Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, South Carolina, Tennessee, Ohio, Minnesota, and Kentucky, and has prior litigation experience in Oklahoma, Missouri, Louisiana, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. He is comfortable litigating beyond Mississippi and working with local counsel as necessary to achieve the client’s goals.

Alex’s practice is focused on two fields: (1) negotiation and litigation of complex insurance coverage matters, with significant experience handling construction disputes; and (2) products liability. He has handled all stages of the litigation and dispute resolution process from initial case consultation through appeal and works with his clients to define their goals early in the process. He recognizes that a client’s desire to win a dispute must be viewed in the context of other realities, including the cost of litigation, and he looks for creative opportunities for resolution throughout the matter.  At the same time, Alex’s trial experience allows him to negotiate with confidence that the case can be tried if necessary.

Alex started his practice with an insurance coverage firm and developed his skills in the context of complex first-party and third-party coverage disputes. He also worked on large loss subrogation matters from initial analysis through trial. That early experience only increased his interest in insurance coverage dispute resolution. With BABC, Alex continues to focus a large share of his practice on insurance coverage dispute resolution.

In addition to his coverage work, a significant portion of Alex’s work relates to his role on a dedicated team of firm attorneys that serve as regional counsel for Cooper Tire & Rubber Company. Alex manages injury and wrongful death litigation across the Eastern United States.

Alex serves as the Jackson Office’s representative on the Firm’s Board.
