Practice groupLitigation

Alexander (Alex) Bowerman is an advocate for clients before, during, and after trial. He has experience with matters in state and federal courts throughout the country, including the United States Supreme Court, and advises clients facing complex civil litigation, high-stakes government investigations, and difficult business decisions alike.

Alex works with a diverse array of clients, including health plans, life sciences companies, technology firms, and major commercial insurers. Alex also maintains an active pro bono practice, which has led him to file briefs arguing crucial issues of constitutional law and criminal procedure.

Before joining Hogan Lovells, Alex served as a law clerk to the Honorable Cheryl A. Krause of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. While in law school, he worked as a summer associate in our San Francisco and Washington, D.C. offices, and twice worked as a law clerk for the United States Attorney's Office for the Northern District of California, first in the Civil Division, and later in the Economic Crimes Unit of the Criminal Division. Alex also participated in Stanford Law School's Criminal Prosecution Clinic, in which he prosecuted narcotics offenses and appeared in court under the supervision of the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office.

In addition, Alex was ferociously active in Stanford's advocacy skills programs. He competed in the Kirkwood Moot Court competition, and served as president of the law school's mock trial program, as well as a teaching assistant for its trial advocacy course. He was actively involved with mock trial as an undergraduate as well, serving as president of Cornell's mock trial program from 2006-2009, and has continuously volunteered with high school mock trial and moot court programs in New York and California.

Before law school, Alex worked as a business analyst with Deloitte Consulting's Strategy & Operations practice.
