Alex Jeffery

Head of Litigation

Alex is a solicitor and head of the Disputes and Litigation team having joined Bright Solicitors in November 2020.

Prior to joining Bright Solicitors, Alex worked in a top ten offshore law firm in the Channel Islands before returning to his home city of Plymouth.

Alex has experience in a wide range of litigation matters but now predominately advises clients in connection with contentious property matters. This includes matters arising from disputed rights of way, boundary issues together with commercial property matters. In particular, Alex regularly advises both landlords and tenants in connection with dilapidations, breach of covenant, forfeiture and break notice matters.

In addition to contentious property matters, Alex also regularly acts for clients in connection with professional negligence and contract disputes together with partnership and Company issues.

Alex firmly believes in a client focussed approach. He tries to resolve disputes, where appropriate, by means of alternative dispute resolution but where resolution is not found, he supports clients through the entire court process.

“Alex Jeffery has been truly kind to do a thorough research and gave us the much needed initial advice and reassurance. Alex also advised us on how to approach the neighbour and how to ensure that our conversations are constructive and non-confrontational. This was an extremely sensitive situation and it got intense at times. If it weren’t for Alex, we would have made many mistakes that could have ruined the relationship with the neighbour and would have complicated the boundary issues. Thank you Alex!”

“We asked Bright Solicitors to act for us to challenge an unfair court order that had been against us without our knowledge and thanks to their efforts this was successfully set aside. Further complex issues connected with this arose and we were supported in this by the Head of Litigation Alex Jeffery. We found Alex to be extremely knowledgable, he gave sound advice that was always in our best interests and was always available and responsive to any questions or issues that arose. This was very reassuring at a difficult and emotionally draining time.”
