Emily Lewis

Solicitor, Fulcrum Chambers
Emily is a solicitor with a wide range of civil and criminal experience. She has been involved in some of the most complex and high-profile corporate investigations and prosecutions brought by the SFO. 

She has a breadth of in-house experience gained on secondment at a multinational extractives company and whilst working overseas, within the offices of a major multinational, as part of a multidisciplinary team engaged in advising upon and executing adequate procedures to prevent bribery within the meaning of the UK Bribery Act.

Emily’s recent experience has also included conducting gap analyses in relation to corporate compliance programmes; advising on the re-design and implementation of compliance policies and procedures; conducting internal investigations into high-risk sales consultancy agreements in multiple jurisdictions and alleged procurement-related corruption; analysis of complex M&A transactions in the context of an SFO investigation into overseas corruption; and advising upon appropriate responses to internal whistle-blower reports and the applicability of legal professional privilege at different stages of internal investigations.

In addition to her white-collar defence and investigations practice, Emily was heavily involved in two high-value international commercial arbitrations in 2017/2018 and was responsible for managing teams of lawyers and paralegals as part of this instruction.

She has prepared submissions on international trade and public law from leading academics for publication in the 2011 and 2012 editions of the Hague Yearbook of International Law.
