One of the effects of this economic downturn is the huge reported rise of corporate crime worldwide, and as a consequence of this, there has been an unprecedented global push (mainly led by the US Department of Justice and Securities & Exchange Commission) by governments to combat corporate crime.

This is a huge area of law covering fraud, money laundering, tax avoidance, and bribery & corruption, and involves both the criminal justice and regulatory systems.

So what do you do when your MLRO or FD comes to you with a report stating it's suspected that your company has broken the criminal law or breached the regulatory process? Do you decide to self-report to the relevant authorities? What will that entail and what will be the consequences? What happens if the SFO or the Police raid your offices and seize computers and/or vital documentation? What if one of your board or employees becomes a 'whistle blower'?

It is imperative that you contact specialist solicitors immediately.

We are a mid-size boutique firm with over thirty years experience of defending corporate crime and white collar fraud, offering partner level advice at attractive rates.

We know the mind-set of the various prosecution and regulatory agencies and have an excellent record of success when dealing with those bodies.

We also bring a fresh approach to this area because of our solid fraud defence and regulatory background. The firm has been a member of the specialist VHCC fraud panel since its inception; this is run by the Government, which ensures the highest levels of practice and expertise by those of our staff upon the panel.

It is a relatively small specialist team which can mobilise quickly and efficiently, which means that you and your company have an unparalleled level of client service. We work with leading barristers, forensic accountants, and computer specialists and we thrive in 'pressure cooker' situations.

The team, led by Jeffrey Lewis, fully understands the civil remedies available to the various government agencies e.g. asset freezing orders / asset restraint orders.

We know the self reporting process well (with all its advantages and disadvantages) and can help you come to a decision about that. We can advise you re your AML and anti-bribery/corruption systems to assist you with negotiations with Deferred Prosecution Agreements (soon to be brought into effect).

We have advised a complete cross section of the corporate world, and have often been brought into assist purely corporate legal practices in these situations.

So, what distinguishes us from our many competitors? Apart from our many years of success in this area, our high levels of expertise and our attractive rates? Perhaps it's our consistently high ranking in the Legal directories, our approachability, or the genuine respect held for us by the authorities?

“I was put in touch with Lewis Nedas Law through a mutual friend and I was not disappointed. The team were nothing but straight forward, honest and realistic about the nature of my case and the expected outcome from the minute I got in contact and were willing to take over from the previous company at very short notice. With their unrivalled experience and expertise in their profession the outcome was even better than expected and I couldn’t recommend them enough.”
