Nick became a part of Lewis Nedas in October 2022, bringing with him a wealth of experience in the legal field. He earned his qualification as a solicitor in January 2018 while undergoing training at a distinguished boutique law firm situated in the heart of central London. Nick has established a remarkable rapport with his clients and is often referred to as their trusted and go-to legal advisor. This reputation is a direct result of his skilful combination of expertise in corporate and commercial law as well as litigation.
Nick particularly excels in matters pertaining to commercial and business law. His specialization lies in corporate transactions, spanning from straightforward acquisitions to high-value, multi-million-pound transactions. Additionally, Nick possesses a deep understanding of drafting general commercial agreements, shareholder agreements, partnership agreements, and a comprehensive array of internal corporate documents.
Nick also boasts a strong foundation in intellectual property law, with a notable focus on trademark and copyright matters. His proficiency in this area allows him to offer strategic guidance to clients seeking to protect and enforce their intellectual property rights. Nick has successfully handled cases involving trademark registrations, trademark infringement disputes, and copyright protection, ensuring that his clients' creative and innovative works are safeguarded in an ever-evolving digital landscape. His thorough understanding of the intricacies of trademark and copyright law positions him as a trusted advisor for clients looking to navigate the complex terrain of intellectual property.
Nick is a trusted advisor in the realm of employment law, catering to both individuals and corporate entities. With a meticulous approach and a sharp eye for detail, he offers invaluable insights into the legal landscape for clients of all backgrounds. His expertise not only helps clients understand their legal standing but also empowers them to craft strategic and tactful solutions, ensuring the most favourable outcomes, be it through negotiation or settlement. Nick’s clientele ranges from newly appointed employees’/start-up companies to long serving executives/well established companies.
Another notable area of Nick's expertise is litigation, a field in which his passion truly shines. He approaches each client's case with a formidable strategy, offering comprehensive advice on the legal processes involved. Nick has a unique ability to assess whether a robust and assertive approach or a more diplomatic and conciliatory one is most suitable for achieving the best possible outcome for his clients.

He also successfully handled a case involving the conversion of an Italian freezing injunction into an English remedy for enforcement in the High Court (Manetta v De Filippo  EWHC 3460 (QB)).
In addition to his litigation practice, Nick provides valuable assistance to individuals and corporate entities facing civil fraud related issues. He has extensive experience in cases where clients have fallen victim to fraud, both domestically and internationally. Nick offers comprehensive and strategic advice on methods for identifying the parties involved and initiating legal proceedings to recover the defrauded funds. His key advice in such matters is to act swiftly, given the rapid movement of ill-gotten gains, especially in the era of cryptocurrencies.
Finally, Nick has a particular passion and expertise in matters involving reputational management and defamation matters. In today's information-rich environment, clients frequently seek his guidance on potentially defamatory reviews or comments made about them. Nick offers reasonable retainer arrangements to promptly address negative comments as they arise, ensuring that clients have readily available advice at a reasonable cost. This service is particularly valuable to startups and small to medium-sized businesses, where word-of-mouth and online reviews carry significant weight.
"To have a solicitor on the other end of the phone is invaluable. Not only do I have access to legal advice of a weekend, I also know that even when Nick is on holiday he’s replied to me. I’m a novice business owner, I don’t know the ins and outs of business so feeling comfortable enough to ask Nick silly little questions is a godsend. To Nick they’re an easy little problem that he’s seen many times but to me they’re huge. Nick is not just a solicitor to me, he’s a friend, a confidant, a business advisor and a superhero. I am not afraid to be in business as I know Nick is there ready to swoop in and help me. I would highly recommend signing a contract for a retainer, this will give you the ability to cc Nick in all emails that may need his legal eye, it will also mean you can ask his advice any time you need to. Lots of small business owners end up in a pickle because they don’t know the law, this way you have a legal guardian angel with you at all times." - R. Vaughan

"Nick is clearly a very competent solicitor. In my interactions with him, he was always well mannered, approachable and always available to discuss the case and respond to questions, even at short notice. This is on top of the fact that he knows his area of competence very well, which made managing and advising through a sensitive, stressful case efficiently all the way to its resolution. I would gladly and easily work with Nick again if there were other cases, and would recommend him to others. Very pleased with the outcome of the case."
