Nikol considers his experience as quite varied as he has practiced with several established law firms and company service providers, in both advisory and representative roles. Initially, He focused on building a solid foundation in civil and commercial litigation, thus enhancing his knowledge in both court procedure and substantive civil and commercial law. This required attending sittings and debating before courts, boards and tribunals while also filing/defending court actions and enforcing /challenging judicial decisions, all within the strict parameters established by procedural law. In due course, Nikol also developed experience in handling transactional matters in local and cross border settings relating to commercial and corporate affairs, including mergers and acquisitions, company reorganization, liquidation and winding up, among others.
