She also counsels clients in connection with project procurement and contracts negotiation and drafting including design-build, design-bid-build, and public-private partnerships. She also works with clients during the course of the project, assisting with conflict and claim avoidance and mitigation. Alex also has experience in complex tort and commercial litigation.

The clients she most frequently represents include project owners, EPC contractors, general contractors, architects and designers. Government agencies, tech service providers, recreational resort operators and public-private partnerships have also looked to her for assistance.
