Our People/Michael J. Ramos

Partner and Chief Risk and Compliance Officer Michael Ramos is a member of Nardello & Co.’s Litigation Support practice. A member of the firm’s Litigation Support practice, Michael’s legal and investigative career has spanned over 30 years. At Nardello & Co., he has managed large litigation support investigations across multiple jurisdictions involving internal fraud, defense against RICO actions, libel cases, and criminal defense matters.

Representative matters
  • For a major international law firm defending a case in which the plaintiffs sought hundreds of millions of dollars in damages, Michael led the investigation an expert witness. While the expert was well-known and had previously testified in dozens of similar cases, Michael found that she had business interests that were not disclosed on her résumé. Moreover, research in a jurisdiction where the expert had lived 20 years earlier revealed that she had a criminal history. In addition, Freedom of Information requests with various government agencies where the expert had obtained business and professional licenses demonstrated that she had perjured herself by not reporting her arrest record on license applications where she was required to do so. Armed with this information, counsel was able to discredit the expert’s credibility. The matter was favorably settled by the law firm.
  • For a financial institution, Michael led an investigation of the underwriting practices of a major mortgage lender. He and his teams identified and contacted hundreds of former employees located across the US. Information obtained from the employees—in some instances provided in the form of affidavits—confirmed the lender’s poor practices. Moreover, Michael developed one witness, an analyst who reported directly to executive management, who told Michael how he warned the lender’s executives about problematic loan portfolios and identified reports he provided those executives concerning problem loans. The reports had not been produced during discovery. With this information in hand, counsel reached a favorable settlement in the matter.
  • For a bank hoping to identify assets of an individual who defaulted on more than $500 million in loans, Michael directed a team that conducted research throughout 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 undertook forensic audits, document review, employee interviews, and the forensic examination of computers at multiple locations across the US. The investigation confirmed that the accounting fraud was not as extensive as had been suspected.
