Specialist Criminal Defence for Individuals and Businesses - Our Approach
We pride ourselves on formulating bespoke defence strategies that protect our clients’ rights from unnecessary interference and publicity. From challenging allegations of road traffic offences to representation in complex financial or corporate crime cases, we ensure our clients are robustly defended.
We work closely with our clients to devise a defence strategy and conduct in-depth investigations to uncover all relevant material. We also test the veracity of any potential evidence, as well as how it was obtained, to ensure our clients’ rights are safeguarded. This allows us to tackle any attempts to restrict the rights and interests of our clients head-on.
A key priority is to ensure our clients are treated fairly by the authorities at every stage of an investigation. We also seek to safeguard our client’s interests, not only by challenging any application made by an investigating authority that is beyond their power, but also by preempting their course of action.
Taking detailed instructions from our clients not only allows us to approach their case tactically, but also to conduct any defence with the upmost discretion, mitigating, as best as possible, the chance of a case coming under the gaze of the public eye. At Lewis Nedas we are committed to defending our clients’ reputation and protecting their rights.
The complexity of the law and heavy evidential burdens on the prosecution means that allegations of criminal activity must be robustly investigated. By taking a proactive approach, our specialist Criminal Defence Team help private individuals as well as private or publicly listed companies protect their interests and reputations from allegations of criminality.
