Alex R. Thiersch’s entrepreneurial spirit has helped him create his own path in business and health care. While building his legal practice in business and employment law, Alex identified a specific need for legal compliance education in the aesthetic market. Alex founded the American Med Spa Association (AmSpa), a trade group that provides legal and business resources for medical spas and medical aesthetic practices throughout the United States. AmSpa is one of the fastest growing and most sought-after resources in the aesthetic industry. Its website, www.americanmedspa.org, receives over 20,000 visits a month.

Alex is a prolific speaker, lecturing throughout the world on aesthetic regulations and compliance issues. Alex crossed paths several times at medical conferences with Michael Byrd. It did not take long for the attorneys at ByrdAdatto (and Alex) to see a natural fit for Alex’s law practice with ByrdAdatto. Alex is now the managing partner for ByrdAdatto’s Chicago office.

Alex’s law practice focuses on representing plastic surgeons, medical spas, and aesthetic practices in business and compliance matters. He also contributes to a variety of industry and consumer publications and websites on medical spa legalities and medical spa best practices.

Alex enjoys spending time at his Chicago home with his wife and six pets (three dogs and three cats).
