Another Success for Lewis Nedas Law

Miles Herman represented a defendant charged with conspiracy to control prostitution and money laundering, having been one of the subjects of Operation Longmorn undertaken by specialist officers from the Metropolitan Police.

The defendant was due to stand trial in August of this year, however following representations made by the defence as well as the prosecution taking a belated view assisted by those representations that there was insufficient evidence to secure a conviction, the defendant was formally found not guilty on charges of controlling prostitution and money laundering.

Jeremy Ornstin, solicitor-advocate, was instructed throughout and provided able assistance in the approach to be adopted with the Crown.

Further Success for Team Lewis Nedas

At Southwark Crown Court Lewis Nedas secured yet another gold podium placing in Operation Forego.

Jeffrey Lewis and Keith Wood acted for the principle defendant in a multi-handed fraud and money laundering conspiracy. This was a truly enormous case. The investigation into our client commenced in 2008 following Operation Rize and continued until 2011 when he and ten others were arrested. The case initially focused on an alleged corrupt relationship with Council officials concerning a proposed redevelopment, but switched its focus to fraud. The evidence consisted of covert surveillance over the period, as well as expert prosecution financial analysis. The police had seized all the client’s records, amounting to some 60,000 pages. Lewis Nedas were, after much argument, given access to this material and were able to show by a painstaking analysis in the two months before trial that the prosecution analysis was simply not capable of belief, as we demonstrated that all the monies going into the various companies were legitimately derived. The main charges the client faced were dismissed by the judge at the close of the prosecution evidence, as we had been able to prove by our work that the Crown’s case was wholly discredited.

Keith was the litigator in the case, instructing Sam Stein QC and Jonathan Green, both Counsel from Dyers Chambers. Mr P De Nahlik from BTG Global Risks assisted with the financial investigation.
