    Chambers UK Guide

Nicola has risen to prominence in legal circles through her outstanding expertise in fraud, civil recovery and business crime and her experience of leading some of the UK's most important and demanding cases.

She has been praised by the Chambers UK Legal Guide for her diligence. Her ability to excel on the most complex cases led to The Guide highlighting her as an associate to watch. Chambers has described Nicola as "dedicated and thorough" and praised her ability to work through huge amounts of material to prepare the very best case possible. In the most recent edition of Chambers, she is described as "fantastic, very capable, efficient and very good with clients".

Nicola worked on the firm's successful representation of the CEO in the huge Imperial Consolidated investment fraud prosecution brought by the Serious Fraud Office. She led the defence team in Britain's biggest mortgage fraud case and regularly defends clients in multi-million pound Proceeds of Crime Act cases.

Her specialities include investment fraud, mortgage fraud, money laundering and bribery and corruption cases. She is heavily involved in multinational investigations into investment frauds that span continents and involve a wide variety of commodities and securities, ranging from conservation related products to forex. Her caseload includes some of the UK’s most sizeable pension liberation fraud cases.

Nicola’s caseload also includes investigations into large-scale fraud and bribery allegations in a wide variety of countries. She has led teams on very high cost fraud cases and defended clients in actions brought by the European Commission’s anti-fraud body OLAF over alleged improper use of EU funds.

Her expertise, attention to detail and ability to rapidly and accurately assess the most detailed and difficult circumstances has led to her being in great demand to conduct internal investigations on behalf of corporate clients. Her judgement in such investigations has proved invaluable in helping clients identify and remove a problem with minimal financial and reputational damage.
