In the criminal sphere, Lewis acts for the prosecution and defence across the spectrum of serious criminal offences, from violence and terrorism to large scale fraud. His practice increasingly focuses on white collar and business crime. Lewis is known as a go-to junior for private prosecutions, and has been instructed in a number of significant fraud cases.
