Alex Wessely's Profile Picture
Alex is a solicitor working with Martyn Day in the international department.
 
Alex first started working for Leigh Day in 2012, when he joined as a paralegal working on the “Mau Mau” litigation. He spent about nine months in Kenya interviewing veterans of the Mau Mau Uprising, before leaving in September 2013 to complete his legal qualifications.
 
Alex re-joined Leigh Day in 2015 as a trainee, and completed his first seat in clinical negligence. He assisted Anne Winyard and Claire Fazan on cases which mainly involved birth injuries and brain and spinal injuries. Alex then spent his second seat in the international department, where he worked on cases on behalf of claimants in Kenya and Sierra Leone.
 
Alex qualified into the international department in September 2017. He currently is assisting Martyn Day on a case on behalf of Sierra Leonean nationals who allege that they suffered human rights abuses in 2010 and 2012. 
 
Before Leigh Day, Alex studied social anthropology at Cambridge University, with a special interest in studying doctors suffering from addiction or mental health problems.
