He specialises in resolving complex and high-value contentious property matters.
He has successfully dealt with forfeiture disputes, injunctions, 1954 Act litigation, rights of light actions, professional negligence claims, dilapidations disputes, the recovery of large rent and service charge arrears, vacant possession strategies and telecommunications matters. Additionally, Alexander regularly delivers advice on cladding and other fire-safety issues impacting assets.
Alexander’s cases increasingly involve property-related insolvency matters. He acts for landlords and tenants impacted by administrations, CVAs, receiverships, liquidations, schemes of arrangements and other corporate and personal insolvency events.
In 2021, the Legal 500 UK identified Alexander as a key lawyer in WFW’s property litigation practice. The testimonials also described him as “a very impressive associate” who, as part of the team, provides “careful and thoughtful strategic and technical advice”. These positive testimonials continued in the 2022 edition, which said: “Alexander Mulroney is super – he grasps any problem very quickly and is able to get to the nub of the issue” before describing him as being “highly experienced and knowledgeable”.
