Who we are

Nyman Gibson Miralis has been a leading Australian defence law firm for over 55 years. While the firm has continued to evolve during this time, we think what really sums up who we are is our dedication to you and our expertise to help you get the best possible legal outcome.

Our areas of expertise include white collar crime, international and transnational criminal law, general and serious crime, crime commissions, and police accountability.


White collar crime

We are widely recognised as leading experts in assisting companies and individuals the subject of white collar and corporate crime investigations and prosecutions.

We specialise in matters involving:

  • Money laundering
  • Complex fraud
  • Domestic and foreign bribery
  • Cartel conduct
  • Insider trading
  • Embezzlement
  • Taxation offences
  • Other dishonesty offences


International and transnational criminal law

Our ability to help you is not defined by geography. While we are based in Sydney, Australia, our powerful international capabilities and partnerships allow us to help you with complex transnational matters that have an Australian connection.

We are the leading Australian defence law firm with a specialist focus on transnational criminal law including:

  • Anti-money laundering law
  • Extradition and mutual assistance law
  • International forfeiture and proceeds of crime law
  • Anti-terrorism law
  • Cybercrime law

Our defence lawyers have expertise in assisting individuals who are being investigated by multiple agencies in multiple jurisdictions, including but not limited to the USA, the E.U, China, Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau, Cyprus, Russia, Mexico, Sweden, South Africa, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

We frequently travel to consult with other law firms outside of Australia to ensure that such cases are managed strategically in both jurisdictions.


General and serious crime

We have conducted some of the largest and most complex defence cases in Australia and have expertise in all areas of general and serious Australian criminal law including:

  • Murder
  • Drug trafficking
  • Fraud
  • Sexual assaults
  • Assaults and related offences
  • Larceny
  • Drink driving and traffic offences

We will carefully review the strengths and weaknesses of your case and provide you with a strategic assessment of the risks and benefits involved in taking your case to trial.


Crime Commissions and other coercive tribunals

We have appeared in key Australian cases examining the powers of Crime Commissions relating to proceeds of crime and applications for the forfeiture of assets. We are regularly involved in litigation in the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeal and the High Court of Australia, where we are recognised for bringing cases of public importance which examine how the Crime Commission’s powers can impact fundamental principles of criminal law, such as the right to a fair trial and the right against self-incrimination.

We have expertise in:

  • Australian Crime Commission law
  • State (NSW) Crime Commission law
  • ASIC investigations and prosecutions
  • ICAC hearings

We appear for people who have been summoned to Crime Commissions anywhere in Australia.


Police accountability

We have a successful and effective niche practice in bringing actions against NSW Police for malicious prosecution, false imprisonment, and unlawful arrest.
