James Reilly

Partner & Higher Rights Advocate

020 3811 5143

Working alongside his brother Sean in our City Office, James is a very successful serious crime advocate with a high acquittal rate of Crown Court trials, and successes in the Court of Appeal.


He is also an expert in extradition and, again, has had many successes in this field.

Equally as sports mad as his brother, he too has a flourishing sports regulatory and disciplinary practice. He has also successfully defended numerous football league and rugby union players facing criminal proceedings, and currently has a number of clients who are sportsmen facing a wide range of drugs conspiracies and violence offences.

James has a wide flourishing client base in both Oxford and London, and was a founding partner of a specialist criminal defence firm in Oxford.

“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.”
