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;

  1. gavelExcellent historic sexual allegation result for Lewis Nedas client and Tony Meisels; Tony represented an individual facing a long history of allegations of historic sexual assaults and rapes by family members, which were said to occur when all parties were either children or in their teens. Tony instructed the excellent Dee Connolly of Counsel. The client entered guilty pleas to two counts concerning one individual but denied the remaining allegations.

    As a result of detailed and difficult preparation for trial and Ms Connolly's superb advocacy, our client was acquitted of the numerous remaining allegations. He was sentenced by a highly experienced trial Judge and received a suspended sentence of imprisonment and a community sentence. The CPS then decided to Attorney General (AG) Reference the case, on the basis that they felt the the sentence was too low and inappropriate. Tony and Ms Connolly drafted a clear and comprehensive letter of objection to such a course, explaining the full circumstances and what had happened in court. This was enough to persuade the CPS to drop their proposed AG Reference.

    We have been successfully defending sexual allegations for many years, including the often more complex, difficult and sensitive historic sexual abuse allegations. We do so discreetly and in a low key manner, at reasonable rates and using the very best advocates and experts.

  2. Siobhain Egan successfully represented a political lobbyist investigated for dishonesty allegations; After making strong representations to the investigating authority, all matters were dropped;

  3. Another successful outcome for firearms specialist Laura Saunsbury; In February 2017 an ordeal lasting nearly a year finally came to an end for a firearm and shotgun certificate holder who was accused of threatening his neighbour with a machete. Our client was acquitted following a two day trial at Lewes Crown Court. The case was expertly prepared by our firearms and weapons law specialist Laura. At the trial our client was skilfully represented by barrister Zeena Begum of 4 Kings Bench Walk, as demonstrated by the fact it took the jury only 18 minutes to reach a unanimous not guilty verdict. In expressing his appreciation our client had this to say about the way we handled his case: “I truly believe without Laura and Zeena I would have lost my case. So happy and relieved they got justice for me”.
