Nick handles a broad range of large-scale, multijurisdictional commercial disputes and internal, regulatory and criminal investigations for major corporate clients, including in the professional services, retail, healthcare and technology sectors.
He has experience defending investigations and proceedings brought by the Serious Fraud Office, the Financial Conduct Authority and the Financial Reporting Council, as well as many of their overseas counterparts.
Nick has particular experience of accounting and audit related disputes and investigations both in the UK and internationally.

advising professional services firms on regulatory investigations, civil litigation and other practice protection matters arising out of client mandates both within the UK and elsewhere in Europe;
defending global organisations in co-ordinated regulatory and criminal proceedings, as well as acting on follow-on or ancillary litigation;
advising major corporates in respect of bribery and corruption investigations in the UK and in numerous overseas jurisdictions, including advising on corruption and money-laundering issues pursuant to various jurisdictions' laws;
advising international organisations on their fraud, anti-bribery and corruption and money-laundering policies; and
advising Tesco on the litigation and investigations resulting from its profit overstatement.
