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;

  3. Our new Oxford Office is booming:

    a) Sean Reilly represented an individual facing firearms and extreme pornography offices, who was acquitted after robust submissions were made by his defence Advocate, James Reilly. Sean and James are also instructed in a new murder prosecution to be heard at Oxford Crown Court;

    b) Richard Demczak successfully represented a client who faced trial at Oxford Crown Court, concerning allegations that he conspired to rob a cannabis factory. He was acquitted by the jury;

    c) Richard also represents the following clients:

    - An individual suspected of hacking into the computers of multiple Oxford Colleges; 
    - An 11 yr old child accused of raping another 8 yr old child;
    - Two separate cases of historic rape allegations;

  4. Unan Choudhury successfully represented a young man accused of various serious offences in relation to acid attacks and possession of a noxious substance. He was tried in absence and very unusually acquitted of all charges, despite his failure to appear at trial;

  5. Siobhain Egan successfully represented a hospital doctor who faced an investigation spanning many months into various allegations of fraud - the investigation was dropped by the investigating authority after detailed submissions were made by Siobhain upon her clients behalf;

    Siobhain also:

    - Advised the Director of a FX trading desk working for an international bank investigated for dishonesty, the matter was resolved by way of a civil remedy and criminal proceedings were avoided;
