Our People


Alex Woods

Alex has over 20 years’ litigation experience. As well as his experience in the fields of crime, fraud, financial irregularity, personal injury and general litigation he has a strong grounding in business. He was a management trainee and in-house lawyer with a manufacturing company in Colchester when he first came across the problems small businesses face in disputes with better-funded opponents. As a director of a property company, The Hold Investment Company, with a portfolio of 15 commercial properties, he has gained a good understanding of the property sector. He has lived and worked in Southwark, London SE1 for the past 20 years and has good contacts amongst estate agents, developers, landlords and local businesses.


Alex Woods’ career history has given him an appetite for No Win No Fee litigation. His simply principle in litigation is to be thoroughly prepared before issuing proceedings and to have a realistic view of the likely value of the claim. Once he is confident that the case has merit and the client is determined he is prepared to fight all the way to trial.  He has structured his business to ensure it is sufficiently capitalised to do so as his experience is that law firms are often reluctant to run no win no fee because they do not know how to cashflow such cases.


Alex also has an interest in the film and television sector. He has won awards both in the UK and Canada, where he has a feature film commissioned as a producer and creator. He speaks French, enjoys squash and ski-ing and is also interested in philosophy, storytelling and meditation.


Alex also runs a YouTube channel on various aspects of the law.  He has appeared on television on the BBC programme, “Rip Off Britain!” as a financial mis-selling expert.


Richard Parsons

Richard has a strong background in general litigation as well as substantial experience of property following a 6 year period at a specialist property law firm in Norwich from 2008-2014. He also has experience of family law matters as well as financial mis-selling litigation and he single-handedly set up and managed a financial mis-selling insolvency unit at his previous law firm before joining Redwood Legal. He frequently represents small to medium business owners and has excellent experience of dispute resolution in this field.


Something of a globe-trotter, Richard counts his clients as far afield as China. He is also something of a self-confessed geek and enjoys computer programming in his spare time. He speaks English, French and basic Mandarin.
