"Alexandra Green is a stand out lawyer. She knows the FCA Handbook inside and out, and always takes a pragmatic approach. She presents extremely well to the business, acting more like a partner to the business rather than a legal advisor removed from the day to day realities. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her."
