Latest case results and new instructions for Lewis Nedas crime, fraud and tax investigation solicitors

  1. court representation defence londonJeffrey Lewis is advising a Company Director in the UK who is currently being investigated by the NCA for bribery and corruption allegations linked with the public sector in a caribbean country;

  2. Jeffrey is also advising two large long established buy to let (private sector) residential landlords, who are being separately investigated by various local authorities for multiple breaches of HMO licences. The local authorities concerned are also contemplating recovery proceedings under POCA 2002 (The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002). This is a relatively new approach by the local authorities to recover substantial sums (rent etc.) earned by those who have breached their HMO licences. The powers under POCA 2002 are both draconian and extensive, as they allow the prosecuting authority to go back 6 years before the commission of the offences and recover monies gained by the landlords of the property concerned. We are seeing more of these proceedings against private sector landlords, and have specialist lawyers that can assist you if you face these issues;
