Executive Leadership

Daniel Nardello

Chairman & Chief Executive Officer
Our People/Daniel Nardello

Dan Nardello is the Chairman and CEO of Nardello & Co., which Chambers and Partners rates as the preeminent investigative firm in the United States. Dan founded the firm in London in 2003, and it has since expanded to New York, its headquarters, Washington DC, Hong Kong, Dubai, Singapore and Los Angeles. He maintains an active presence in the firm’s highest profile matters including activist defense, complex litigation and special investigations.

Dan has been consistently recognized as a Band 1 leading investigator by Chambers and Partners, which calls him “the gold standard for private investigators” and “the best in the business.” According to Chambers, “talking to Dan is like talking to another lawyer at your firm who has expertise in investigative matters. He’s a great sounding board. You think you want something, and he’ll tell you what you actually want, and that’s invaluable.” Chambers also notes that Dan “is a particularly insightful strategist who “can be counted on to navigate challenging legal and business issues while maintaining the highest standards of professionalism and integrity.”

Among his significant public matters, Dan was appointed by the government of Abu Dhabi as the independent investigator of allegations of abusive labour practices in the construction of New York University’s Abu Dhabi campus. Dan was also named as the independent investigator to resolve issues arising from the settlement agreement between the State of New York and leading tobacco manufacturers. Currently, Dan leads the Nardello & Co. team engaged by the new leadership of FTX to investigate, among other things, the circumstances of its collapse and the location of its assets.

Dan has written and spoken on a wide range of topics, including the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, defending corporations from activist attacks, vetting board candidates in the #MeToo era, and conducting defense investigations in white collar cases. He created and teaches a New York- and California-certified CLE ethics course entitled Retaining Private Investigators: Ethical Considerations and Concerns.
