Alexander Dolgorukow supports his clients, often industrial and engineering companies, in resolving commercial disputes. Alexander regularly acts in cases relating to construction, supply chains and in the context of compliance investigations. He has particular experience in representing clients in cross border disputes on questions of discovery and document production. 

Alexander recently re-joined Hogan Lovells after having held a position as Senior Legal Counsel for Dispute Resolution with a major international engineering and industrial company. Given his inhouse background, Alexander very well understands the specific needs and expectations of inhouse legal counsel and provides his legal advice accordingly. He is used to deal with complex technical and commercial situations. Having spent a great portion of his work inhouse with engineers and the business units involved in a dispute, he understands and speaks their language and can get on top of technical and commercial issues quickly, always keeping an eye on the costs involved – both in terms of legal fees and the time commitments required on the side of the client.

Alexander is an experienced negotiator. In his inhouse function, he frequently advised and trained his colleagues from commercial departments on negotiation strategy, claims management and on making contract drafting and execution "litigation proof". 

While being technical and commercial minded, Alexander has a track record in academia. He has published and lectured on topics of international arbitration with a focus on document production and costs. He holds a PhD in the field of comparative commercial law. 

Having lived abroad in England and in Russia for considerable time, Alexander is particularly experienced in dealing and communicating with clients, opposing parties, arbitrators and witnesses from different cultural and legal backgrounds. Apart from his native language German, Alexander can conduct proceedings in English and has a good command of Russian.
