Alex leverages more than 17 years of experience conducting complex and often multi-jurisdictional assignments in Eastern Europe and the CIS, with a focus on Ukraine, Russia, the Balkans and Kazakhstan. Having joined the firm initially in London, Alex ran Kroll’s Moscow office for 10 years.
Prior to joining Kroll, Alex worked in a public affairs consultancy and taught post-Soviet politics at the London School of Economics. In 2011, Alex left Kroll for one year to work in BP PLC’s Fraud and Misconduct Investigations team with a focus on the Caspian region.
Alex assists corporates, law firms, private equity houses, financial institutions and high-net-worth individuals to identify, understand and manage the risks involved in mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance transactions and new market entry, including political risks. He also supports clients’ management of disputes, internal fraud and corruption investigations and asset recoveries.
Alex’s more recent focus is helping regional ultra-high-net-worth individuals handle increasing compliance demands through our reputation audit offering, which includes origins of wealth analysis, compliance consulting and other remediation strategies.
