What inspired you to pursue a career in asset recovery?
One of the things I always enjoyed when I was a practising lawyer and federal prosecutor was finding answers beneath the surface. That discipline is central to the work we do in asset recovery, and all our other investigation assignments. I was drawn to this field because it allowed me to apply my legal training and passion for fact-finding in a creative and challenging way.
What was the greatest challenge you faced in establishing your own firm?
When I started Nardello & Co, my goal was to establish a world-class, international firm with a culture that puts clients first and is rooted in the highest standards of ethics and integrity. As the firm continues to expand, the key challenge for all of us is to ensure that we never lose sight of the fundamentals – following the letter of the law and conducting ourselves ethically and with integrity in everything we do and providing our clients with exceptional service. This is a particular challenge in certain jurisdictions in which we are navigating around systemic corruption.
As founding partner, what are your priorities for the firm’s development in the next few years?
Over the next few years, I want to focus on continuing to attract exceptional candidates to add to our deep bench of investigative talent. As we continue to expand our global client base, we are putting procedures in place to maintain our culture, which is one of putting clients first and handling investigations with legal and ethical rigour.
