In 2012 Nigel represented Phillip Dennett in a ten-week “Boiler-Room Fraud” which was highly publicised because the first defendant was Lord Hugh Rodley, aka “The Lord of Fraud”. Shares worth more than £14m were sold in companies that did not trade in any meaningful sense. Nigel used defence expert handwriting evidence and cross-examination of the prosecution’s expert chartered accountant during the trial to ensure that although Mr Dennett was the director of the two principal companies operating the frauds and had control of the bank accounts, he was the only one of the five on trial to be acquitted of conspiracy to defraud and fraudulent trading; this was despite the fact that he had given undertakings not to act as a Director during the concurrent investigation by Companies House.

Nigel made a successful application to dismiss for Stephen Bragg in the infamous “Millennium Dome Fraud”. He has extensive experience of tobacco and alcohol excise evasion cases and has recently been instructed at the confiscation stage of an MTIC Fraud where the assets are said to be in the sum of £90m. He has considerable success in money laundering cases where the allegedly criminal property has been alleged to have come from numerous sources including drug trafficking and a variety of frauds.
