Work highlights

  • Represented the principal defendant in the Vietnamese immigrant lorry manslaughter case.
  • Acted in a case concerning an alleged organised crime gang murder. The firm represented a defendant extradited from Malta, who had absconded from the UK in 2003.
  • Acted in a large sophisticated multi-defendant fraud allegation. The case, centred around a £10m conspiracy to defraud; the defendants are alleged to have obtained and sold UK bank account details on an industrial scale.

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.
