Alexander works proactively with the founders of start-ups and helps them grow their businesses. In particular, he is able to share his expertise in data protection law; “e-commerce” law, intellectual property law and contract law. Alexander has a lot of experience in advising founders regarding implementing share options schemes and helping businesses prepare for (and then managing the process) further investment rounds. Alexander has a particular interest in the TMT sector – he works with a number of social networks; “app” based businesses, digital marketers and telecommunication companies. He is particularly proud that he is often approached by former entrepreneur clients asking him to work with them again as they embark on their post exit projects.
