Alfred has been a core member of the international protection team since he joined in September 2020. He has worked on complex asylum, extradition, sanctions, immigration, civil litigation and INTERPOL matters. Alfred has assisted numerous clients in obtaining refugee status and is managing several politically sensitive asylum applications that engage potential extradition proceedings, INTERPOL requests, civil litigation and criminal/civil proceedings across a number of jurisdictions.

Alfred excels at managing complex cases with multiple fee earners and is particularly adept at assisting high-net-worth clients by offering round-the-clock updates on their matters. In working closely with and learning from partners Roger Gherson and Charles Burnett, Alfred has learnt first-hand how to run complex international protection cases, service clients and manage teams. He has built strong relationships with senior Counsel from top financial crime, litigation and immigration chambers.

Alfred is motivated by servicing his clients, running complex cases and assisting in building a versatile and hard-working team.
