Michael Ramos is a Senior Managing Director based in the New York office. A member of the firm’s Litigation Support Practice, he also serves as the firm’s Chief Risk and Compliance Officer. Michael Ramos’ legal and investigative career, spanning over 20 years, has been defined by his commitment to excellence. A former Assistant US Attorney in the Eastern District of New York, Michael returned to investigative practice joining Nardello & Co. after his government service.
At Nardello & Co., Michael has managed large litigation support investigations across multiple jurisdictions involving internal fraud, defense against RICO actions, libel cases, and criminal defense matters. In addition, he has successfully directed several international asset tracing and forensic accounting teams.
For a bank hoping to identify assets of an individual who defaulted on more than $500 million in loans, Michael’s team searched in France, the Netherlands, the UK, the Caribbean, and the US, and identified numerous businesses and substantial assets, including millions of dollars in artwork. In support of an internal investigation involving an internationally known hospitality company, Michael and his team performed forensic audits, document review, employee interviews, and the forensic examination of computers at multiple locations across the United States. The investigation confirmed that the accounting fraud was not as extensive as had been suspected.
Earlier in his career, Michael worked at Zuckerman Spaeder LLP. He also clerked for US Magistrate Judge Joan M. Azrack in the Eastern District of New York. Before his legal career, Michael was an associate director with another international investigations firm, where he conducted pre-transaction due diligence, asset searches, and fraud investigations on behalf of Fortune 500 corporations, financial institutions, law firms, and foreign governments.
Michael Ramos received his JD degree from Brooklyn Law School and a BA degree from Rutgers University.
