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.
