Professional Biography:

Overview of Nyman Gibson Miralis- size and geographical reach:

Nyman Gibson Miralis is a specialist firm of criminal defence lawyers and advisors based in Sydney, Australia, with expertise in domestic and international white collar and corporate crime.

White collar crime encompass offences such as corporate crime, fraud, bribery (including foreign bribery), insider trading, embezzlement, taxation offences, money laundering and other dishonesty related offences which may be prosecuted by the Australian Tax Office (ATO), the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) and the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) and the Commonwealth DPP (CDPP).

White collar crime also captures proceedings for the forfeiture and seizure of property declared to be proceeds of crime.

What are our main target markets?

Our clients are Directors of Corporations of all sizes, employees and contractors, government office holders, foreign executives and individuals who are seeking the expertise of lawyers who can operate in Australia but also globally.

Our clients seek us out for sound legal advice concerning negotiations with the regulators during the investigation phase but also for our experience in developing and providing legally sophisticated strategies for trial.

Representing clients in white collar crime investigations and offences requires a comprehensive understanding of the complex legislation and the practice and procedure of regulatory and investigative bodies

The investigation of complex white collar offences often involves multiple law enforcement agencies working across several jurisdictions to investigate, gather evidence, and prosecute, sometimes in more than one jurisdiction, whilst parallel civil and criminal proceedings are often permitted.

We offer specialist capabilities in these areas including providing legal advice about compliance with Australian Anti- Money Laundering legislation.

What are the outstanding services we offer?

Nyman Gibson Miralis has acquired expertise in working collaboratively across jurisdictions and formulating international defence strategies, covering international investigations and prosecutions (including extradition) and the sharing of information between foreign states.

Our major point of difference is our transnational legal work and the relationships we have built working collaboratively with international partners to achieve results aligned with our clients’ objectives.

Our lawyers have strategically collaborated with lawyers in the US, Cyprus, London, Singapore, China, Canada, Russia, South Korea, Mexico and Hong Kong.
