Alex Hall Taylor QC was called to the Bar in 1996 and completed pupillage in Lincoln’s Inn, going on to develop a successful commercial chancery practice at what is now Radcliffe Chambers.
Alex spent 17 years as a full-time practising member of 4 New Square where he was ranked as a leading junior by Legal 500, Chambers & Partners and Chambers Global in four complementary areas of practice: commercial chancery (particularly offshore), banking / financial services, civil fraud and professional liability. He was twice shortlisted for professional negligence junior of the year in the Chambers & Partners bar awards.
In 2018 Alex joined Maples and Calder as a litigation partner in their British Virgin Islands office, specialising in international commercial litigation and dispute resolution, including arbitration and mediation, insolvency and restructuring. After taking silk in 2020 Alex moved to head up Carey Olsen’s BVI litigation and dispute resolution practice. He no longer practises or accepts instructions in England & Wales and is not registered with the Bar Standards Board to do so. Alex has extensive case management, interlocutory, trial and appellate advocacy experience including before the Privy Council. His practice is almost exclusively contentious, involving advocacy, tactical advice and strategic expertise in high value, complex, document heavy and multi-jurisdiction commercial, financial, trusts, company and insolvency disputes. He is a CEDR accredited mediator.
Alex was elected as a door tenant of chambers in 2018.
