More Acquittals for Lewis Nedas clients and their Specialist Criminal and Fraud Lawyers

  1. gavel 2Leila Abdul-Rasool represented an individual facing allegations of historical sex assault and trial in the Crown Court. As a result of Leila's determined approach to both the preparation of the case and requests for disclosure, the CPS decided to drop the prosecution a week before trial;

  2. Siobhain Egan represented a banker facing a police investigation for fraud. As a result of strong representations made to the police, the investigation was dropped;

  3. Penny Muir represented defendants in three separate trials over the last two months, and all three of her clients were acquitted:

    a) In the first matter, she represented a man who was a professional in the financial services industry and had no previous convictions. He was charged with a number of offences of possession with intent to supply drugs, and also possession of counterfeit currency. The case took well over a year to come to trial and during that time, our client was extremely anxious and stressed. Penny instructed the brilliant young barrister, Sam Trefgarne, of 23 Essex Street Chambers, to represent him, and our client was acquitted after less than an hour’s deliberation by the jury. We are proud to say that Sam worked for a year at Lewis Nedas Law before taking up his place as a trainee barrister at chambers. We predict a great future at the bar for him;

    b) Penny’s client in the second trial was charged with two matters of false imprisonment and two matters of assault. The circumstances were very serious, and involved a dispute about money. Penny instructed Douglas Page of Breams Buildings, who dealt well with a number of difficult legal and factual issues in the trial, including the use by the prosecution of our client’s previous convictions in the case against him, but again the jury took just over an hour to acquit him;

    c) Finally, Penny represented a lady of previous good character who was charged along with others in a fraud and money laundering trial which lasted two weeks. Penny instructed the excellent Charles Langley of 2 Bedford Row Chambers and again, our client was acquitted by the jury. She was naturally delighted and relieved as her health had suffered due to the stress of the proceedings.

  4. Siobhain Egan successfully represented a professional man, who holds a senior position in a very sensitive profession and faced an allegation that he had assaulted his wife. The CPS were aware that his wife, who had been under the influence of alcohol when she called the police, had withdrawn her allegation within hours of the original 999 call.
    Siobhain wrote to the CPS asking that they reconsider the decision to prosecute, stating that the couple wanted to reconcile (our clients bail conditions excluded him from the family home) and that if the case proceeded, the client would automatically lose his job and therefore his ability to support their children.The CPS refused and continued with the prosecution.
    Siobhain instructed the excellent David Nathan QC, who persuaded the very experienced Judge after arguing Abuse of Process, that it would be impossible for our client to have a fair trial and that the alleged victim had made it plain that the incident had never happened and that she would give evidence for her husband. By agreeing to do so she risked prosecution for wasting police time or perverting the course of justice.
    The Judge stopped the prosecution, acquitted our client and made an order for defence costs;

Siobhain Egan also represented a businessman who was tried in the Crown Court for allegations of sexual assault, and whose case was reported widely in the National press. Again David Nathan QC represented this defendant who was acquitted of all charges.The Judge made an order for defence costs;
