Through his work in private practice, pharmaceutical companies and the European Medicines Agency (EMA), Alexander acquired extensive first-hand experience in dealing with highly sensitive and complex regulatory matters, access to documents and clinical data disclosure. Building upon this experience, he delivers practical, clear and effective advice to clients in relation to regulatory strategies and interactions with the regulators.

Alexander focuses on a broad range of issues relating the life-cycle of medicinal products and medical devices- product classification, clinical trials, marketing authorisation, CE marking, pharmacovigilance, post-marketing surveillance, marketing and promotion, interactions with health care professionals.

In addition, he has been directly involved in internal investigations, audits and regulatory due-diligence projects.

Before joining Hogan Lovells, Alexander served as Legal Adviser in EMA. He litigated successfully four access to documents cases in the General Court. Alexander was also heavily involved in complex and sensitive safety referrals procedures, including referrals that resulted in legal challenges.
