Nicholas M. Berg

Partner at Ropes & Gray LLP

A creative and accomplished litigator, Nick Berg focuses his practice on global anti-corruption investigations and other international risk issues, SEC enforcement matters, and complex litigation in state and federal courts around the U.S. Clients rely on Nick for his innovative, efficient, tireless advocacy and, as they tell The Legal 500, his “outstanding understanding of the complexities of investigations spanning multiple jurisdictions” and highlight how he pays “due regard to local cultural challenges and sensitive areas.” As co-coordinator of Ropes & Gray’s Latin America initiative and with his strong presence in Latin America, Nick was named one of the top 100 lawyers for FCPA and Fraud in Latin America by Latinvex 2019 and last year was awarded Latin America Rising Legal Star by Latinvex.
Nick has substantial experience advising global clients in a broad array of industries in connection with government and internal investigations involving the FCPA, the U.K. Bribery Act, export control and economic sanctions laws and regulations, and other international risk issues. In Latin America, a significant amount of Nick’s work involves advising several multinational private equity companies regarding issues involving their portfolio companies and represented these firms in connection with anti-corruption deal diligence for potential acquisitions in the region. In addition, Nick routinely advises clients in connection with SEC and Special Committee investigations involving allegations of accounting errors and misstatements, insider trading, fraud, embezzlement, and bribery. He has also spent well more than a decade representing clients in federal securities fraud and consumer class actions, private equity disputes, and transaction-related litigation and arbitrations.
