“Through a recommendation, we got introduced to Naziana Mehdy at Lewis Nedas. I can now confidently say that Naziana is the best commercial solicitor in the UK. We worked with her on two occasions, and she far exceeded our expectations regarding her professionalism, understanding of the tasks at hand, skills, and, above all, her friendly demeanour. We had a very complex situation involving multiple parties that had to be managed tactfully. Also, timeliness was of utmost importance, and Naziana was prompt, responsive, and supportive all along. She works not just in the capacity of executing her duties as a professional solicitor but also looks at the case as if she is personally involved and tries to find solutions that benefit her clients the most. I highly recommend Naziana if someone is looking for a reliable and skilled commercial solicitor in the UK.” - Murtaza Pattherwala

“I have been using Lewis Nedas before and I have always been happy. This time Naziana dealt with our lease extension. I found her to be extremely professional, knowledgeable, attentive and approachable. I can't recommend Naziana enough.”
"Lewis Nedas Law was recommended to me by the estate agent, and Naziana, who eventually took on my case was an absolute pleasure to work with. This was my first property purchase in the UK, so I was unfamiliar with the process and a little anxious after having been pushed around by various sellers in the past. From the first phone call I had with Naziana I felt like I was in good hands. She was very friendly, forthcoming, helpful and extremely professional."
"Have worked with many solicitors over the years, and find that like most businesses its the quality of personnel that really make the difference. I have been fortunate to have been working with Naziana over the last year or so on multiple projects, and have had prompt, professional, and expert service throughout. I will continue to work with Lewis Nedas if they continue to retain the great people they employ."
"From the outset, Naziana was a fund of sound professional advice and very quickly grasped all the intricacies of my case. She drafted my two commercial leases very speedily and efficiently and was always responsive as a friendly voice at the end of the phone to answer my questions and to give updates. She also gave me much-needed moral and professional support and help well beyond the call of duty. In fact, I couldn't have managed the often tricky negotiations without her expert support. The whole experience was extremely rewarding and stress-free. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Naziana Ayed, and Lewis Nedas generally as a very approachable and efficient law firm."
"Naziana was fantastic throughout the purchase of my flat. She was patient, clear and quick to action every request. She guided me - and the vendor’s solicitors - expertly through the development of a new lease, making sure that I got the best deal for now, and in the future. I can’t thank her enough”
"We thank you very much for all your diligent consideration and help during the process and for ensuring that everything went smoothly and correctly. Your input was much appreciated."
"I’m writing to place on record my appreciation for the services offered by Naziana Ayed on behalf of Lewis Nedas Law.

“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.”
