Alexandra is a managing director in the Global Risk and Investigations Practice (GRIP) of FTI Consulting and is based in London. She has over a decade’s experience of managing complex investigative business intelligence, risk management and dispute resolution projects in Western Europe and across the wider EMEA region.
Alexandra co-leads the London GRIP team, where she advises a diverse client base, including corporates, international law firms and private equity on the risks and opportunities inherent in pre-transaction situations. Her leadership of enhanced due diligence investigations allow acquisitive clients to identify and then mitigate potential reputational, regulatory or political issues of concern.
In the post-event space, Alexandra has worked closely with GCs to develop litigation and arbitration support strategies as well as manage internal fraud or other anti-corruption investigations. She has led global asset tracing investigation teams deployed to identify, freeze and ultimately recover assets world-wide.
Alexandra’s focus on private client and UHNW individuals means that she is often called to advise on the use of specialist investigations in crisis situations, gathering information and intelligence to support her client’s interest.
Alexandra joined FTI Consulting in 2012 from a London-based competitor corporate investigations group. There, most of her work was orientated to help clients comply with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and U.K. Bribery Act (UKBA) regulations, as well as combat money-laundering, fraud or corruption.
Previously, Alexandra worked as a consultant at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington DC, the bi-partisan public policy research institution. There, she was involved with a special initiative on behalf of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security concerning the diplomatic service. She has also spent time in the counterterrorism department of the international NGO Human Rights Watch, in New York City.
Alexandra holds a B.A. in Theology from Oxford University (2005) and an M.A. in Intentional Security from the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University (2008).
