Miriam Nichols Director London +44 (0)207 728 2851

I have 20 years' experience of dealing with contentious insolvency assignments. I specialise in large, complex and multi-jurisdictional insolvency cases, including fraud investigations and enforcing judgments.

I work with clients and victims of fraud to develop strategies to identify, secure and realise assets, often acting on a contingency fee basis. I often work alongside our forensic and corporate intelligence colleagues to assist with tracing and identification of assets.

My work has included individual bankruptcy investigations, multiple offshore insolvency appointments, including the Caribbean and the Channel Islands, involving large debt structures and use of contentious litigation to recover assets. I led the Madoff Securities liquidation in the UK, working with the US trustee of the Madoff entities involved in the world's biggest Ponzi scheme fraud, to recover assets for the benefit of the worldwide victims of the fraud.

Prior to specialising in cross-border insolvencies I worked in the mid-market insolvency market leading trading administrations, liquidations and asset recovery investigations, using insolvency compulsive powers, civil legislation and litigation to enhance asset realisations and financial recoveries for key stakeholders.
