Duncan Lewis is a leading provider of Crime and Fraud legal services. Rajvinder will be joining the firm’s existing 36 Crime Duty Solicitors in the firm’s General Crime and Fraud department which deals with high value cases over £100, 0000 often involving extraterritorial issues and restraint.
Rajvinder joins Duncan Lewis from a medium sized London based practice. Since then Rajvinder has continued to build her formidable reputation having been involved in some of the most serious fraud cases of recent times. Her professional expertise, dedication and unwavering commitment to defence work have won her a loyal client base.
Rajvinder belongs to a small group of Solicitors who are not on the duty schemes as she has a strong client base, which crosses racial and geographical divides. Her work ranges from the North of England to the South West coast through to Cornwall. Rajvinder advises and defends in a broad spectrum of criminal and regulatory matters, including investigations and prosecutions by the Serious Fraud Office, the Financial Services Authority, the Crown Prosecution Service and Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs. Many of these cases possess international or multi-jurisdictional elements. Rajvinder has therefore developed a good knowledge of extradition law and frequently advises both UK-based and foreign clients resisting extradition to and from the United Kingdom.
Rubin Italia, Director of the Duncan Lewis Solicitors Crime Department added;
“I have known Rajvinder Dayal for a number of years through co-defending in various matters. I am pleased that she is now a valued member of the Criminal Team at DL, enhancing an already specialist team. Rajvinder brings to DL a loyal following she has established in Very High Costs Cases (VHCC), and Serious Crime.
Her portfolio of clients encompasses a wide range of offences from murder, high value serious fraud often involving issues of extraterritoriality. DL are proud to welcome Rajvinder and are certain that this relationship will bring her and the firm much success."
