Alex Hughes's practice emphasizes complex commercial litigation, internal investigations, and white collar criminal defense. His criminal practice has a strong transnational focus. He has represented individuals and entities in government investigations and prosecutions involving export-control regulations, money laundering, manslaughter, federal environmental laws, and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). On the civil side, he has represented plaintiffs and defendants in disputes ranging from 7 to 10 figures in value.

During that time he was on the trial team for a client acquitted after a jury trial in federal court, represented a client who was presidentially pardoned, conducted investigations in foreign countries and across the United States, and conducted discovery and motions practice in class actions and other nationwide litigation.
