Alexander Wright Biography :

Alexander Wright is a principal resident in the firm’s Towson office and is the chairman of the Alternative Dispute Resolution group and a member of the Litigation department. Mr. Wright also serves as Co-Chair of our firm's Diversity Committee. His practice focuses on arbitration, mediation and dispute resolution with a particular emphasis on matters involving medical malpractice, personal injury, construction, domestic, bankruptcy and labor and employment law. Mr. Wright is on various national panels as an arbitrator, including the National Association of Security Dealers, the American Arbitration Association, the New York Stock Exchange and the National Arbitration Forum. Prior to joining Miles & Stockbridge, Mr. Wright served for nearly 10 years as a Baltimore County Judge both in the District and Circuit Courts. While on the bench, Mr. Wright presided over a docket that included cases ranging from multimillion-dollar medical malpractice cases to death penalty cases. His career also has included appointments as assistant attorney general and as principal counsel to a number of state agencies of the State of Maryland, including the Department of Economic and Employment Development and the Office of Judicial Affairs. Earlier in his legal career, he served as an assistant attorney general in the State’s Department of Personnel, as an associate in private practice, and as an assistant public defender for Baltimore City. While in the attorney general’s office, Mr. Wright handled appellate cases on various topics including salary grades and workers’ compensation. He also supervised assistants handling unemployment appeals, including class action appeals. Mr. Wright has significant experience handling employee grievances, arbitration, and litigation of public sector employment cases. In addition, he has presided over varied employment cases involving restrictive covenants and employment-related torts. As part of a newly-instituted Multi-Disciplinary Risk Management and Avoidance Project, Mr. Wright was retained to make an assessment of an office unit for a major manufacturer. There were allegations of discrimination and reverse discrimination. The initial request was for a recommendation for a diversity trainer. The Alternative Dispute Resolution group was successful in convincing management that training that focused on accepting differences was not going to get to the core issues causing the conflict. After an assessment of the problem, the group determined that the problem was related more to organization and communication. Recommendations were made to change the organization chart, train employees, restructure the workplace and to take certain disciplinary actions. The unit has begun to work cohesively.
