Alex Purvis is a litigator and policyholder coverage lawyer with a unique background, including experience in product liability, construction, and complex commercial litigation. He started his career as a litigation associate handling large-scale insurance coverage and subrogation matters. After joining Bradley in 2005, Alex developed a reputation as a leading insurance coverage lawyer for commercial policyholders across the Southeast. 

Alex can fight for his clients when needed, but he prefers to work with his clients to seek resolution consistent with their big-picture goals, using his insurance, risk management, and trial experience as leverage over the course of a dispute. His courtroom experience includes matters in state and federal courts across the country, and he frequently handles matters pending in courts outside of his home state of Mississippi. Alex manages all stages of the dispute resolution process from initial case consultation through appeal, and he works with his clients to define their goals early. 

His favorite relationships with clients are partnerships, and Alex focuses on providing value to each matter that he handles. Alex is a Fellow in the American College of Coverage Counsel (ACCC).
