Alex Lewis is currently not accepting instructions.

Alex Lewis is a highly experienced criminal practitioner who is regularly instructed to defend and prosecute in serious and complex crime and fraud cases, as either leading or sole junior.

Throughout her career Alex has specialised particularly in cases of serious sexual assault. She has prosecuted several cases of serial rape and other sexual violence, frequently involving vulnerable complainants and witnesses, or where mental health issues arise. She receives consistently positive feedback from those instructing her on the sensitive approach she adopts in the handling of such cases. Consequently, she is particularly in demand to prosecute cases of child cruelty, grooming, sexual acts with children and other abuse against minors. Alex has also prosecuted cases involving paedophile rings and historic sexual abuse.

In addition, her interest and experience of cases involving vulnerable witnesses has led to Alex being instructed in cases of prostitution and people trafficking, which she has prosecuted on behalf of the specialist divisions of the Metropolitan Police and CPS. She recently led the prosecution at Southwark Crown Court against Mircea-Petrisor Ciurlea and Cezar Murariu, two Romanian men accused of luring young women to the UK in order to engage them in prostitution. The complainants were vulnerable witnesses who had to be returned from Eastern Europe in order to give evidence.

Alex also has extensive experience of cases of murder (in which she is frequently instructed to prosecute as sole counsel), manslaughter, attempted murder and other non-fatal offences of violence. She has also been instructed in cases involving blackmail, kidnap, drugs importation and supply, and related confiscation proceedings. She is entirely at ease with the particular issues arising from the prosecution of cases involving multiple defendants, conspiracy and joint enterprise.

Alex is also an experienced fraud practitioner, having prosecuted on behalf of the CPS Fraud Group and others, cases involving most forms of financial crime. She also defends such cases in the Crown Court and Court of Appeal.

She also has experience of regulatory tribunals, and is increasingly involved in professional discipline work.

Alex is an approved as a Grade 4 prosecutor, the highest grade for barristers who are yet to take Silk.

Alex is also on the Fraud, Serious Crime and General Crime panels of the CPS.
