MODERN LAWYERSFOR CHANGING TIMES 'a City firm in a non-City location' - Legal 500

Financial-conduct-authority-lawyers-londonSo, what sets Lewis Nedas Law apart from our numerous competitors? We too take the same multi-disciplinary approach to both the regulatory and criminal proceedings brought by the FCA (the Financial Conduct Authority, formerly the Financial Services Authority (FSA)).

Our secret weapon is Jeffrey Lewis who, for many years, worked in the City as an investment analyst before re-qualifying as a lawyer. He has represented and defended individuals who have fallen foul of the City's regulators long before the creation of the FCA. He combines his sharply honed legal skills with commercial instinct and a deep understanding of the mind-set of the FCA. It is his unique insight that gives us an absolute advantage over all our competitors.

In a recent blaze of publicity, the FCA have announced an aggressive approach using both their wide regulatory sanctions and criminal powers.
