Crime

Position

Director Hardeep is a specialist in criminal fraud defence work and has a significant practice in high-value DWP benefit fraud, MTIC VAT fraud, and complex boiler room and money laundering cases. He defends cases investigated and prosecuted by the National Crime Agency, HMRC, the Serious Fraud Office, UK Borders Agency, Economic Crime Units, the DWP, local authorities and Trading Standards. Hardeep also handles defence work in high-profile (often gang-related) serious crimes such as murders, drug importation, fraud and rape.

He has a niche specialism in defending bank employee fraud cases (with holistic assistance from the firm’s welfare benefits legal team). Hardeep has further expanded his role by ensuring the firm is recognised as leaders in representing clients charged with very serious high profile offences which are only triable at the Crown Court. This includes high value complex fraud cases and large scale drug importation cases.

Hardeep’s notable cases include R v W, a money laundering case involving money in excess of £100,000, and the case of R v O which involved the alleged large-scale importation of cannabis into the UK from the Netherlands and was investigated by the National Crime Agency.

Career

Hardeep qualified as a solicitor in 1997. He joined Duncan Lewis in 1999 and has been a partner-level director from 2006 to date.
