Sean Reilly is the powerhouse behind the LN criminal team. Sean’s team is tried and tested; trainees receive the very best training available and this is reflected in the quality of work, preparation and advice provided to their clients. This level of expertise and client care is why Sean and his team are so highly regarded and boast a large number of repeat clients.’

Sean leaves no stone unturned and always goes the extra mile for his clients, regardless of the funding status. A charismatic lawyer, both charming and skilled in equal measure. One of the genuine stand-out professionals working in the Criminal Justice System.

The team really goes above and beyond. So many firms now seem to not care about their clients, the opposite is true about Lewis Nedas. They really fight for their client, they go above and beyond.’

Tony Meisels is at the top of his game, and I never hesitate to recommend clients to him when they’re in a difficult situation. You can be sure that clients will receive a first-class service from a solicitor who is all over the detail and always keeps the client updated.’

Keith Wood is excellent, determined and hugely experienced.’

A great team that uses technology well and works well with outside experts.

Siobhan is so good with clients. Deals with difficult clients well. Keith Wood is a superstar and always sets expectations well.

‘This is a firm that punches well above its weight and routinely gets instructed above the more glamorous and well known city firms. Hard-working and fully engaged with clients.’

Established by Jeffrey Lewis and Stephanie Nedas, over 35 years ago, the firm has expanded from its original Camden location and now has offices in East London, Mayfair and Oxford, serving its respective client base in those areas.

Renowned for its criminal defence and serious fraud defence work over the years, it has gradually expanded its service menu to include buoyant departments dealing with: civil fraud and asset recovery: company/ commercial, dispute resolution, employment, probate, wills and trusts, professional disciplinary, property ( both residential and commercial ).

Jeffrey Lewis has steadily recruited lawyers, from other Legal 500 ranked firms, former barristers and partners from City and West End practices, bringing with them a wealth of talent and expertise.

These lawyers in turn attract both commercial and individual clients both in the UK and abroad bringing with them high profile, complex cases and instructions.

The firm has always ‘punched way beyond its weight‘ in terms of the quality and volume of its cases and instructions, consistently achieving excellent results and high client satisfaction rates (borne out by testimonials and reviews) but places itself as in terms of fee pricing as ‘mid-market‘.

Jeffrey Lewis firmly believes that it is possible to offer first class service to clients, that easily excel those offered by competitors at affordable, realistic, transparent pricing levels.

The firm prides itself upon its absolute discretion, low key but effective approach and ‘cutting edge’ legal services.
