    Re. "To begin, our client is not Irish. This simple falsehood clearly demonstrates you did no actual investigation or reporting." Er ... your client's nationality was disclosed as "Irish" in filings with Companies House for England and Wales regarding his own companies, namely Almas Capital Investments Ltd., which went into creditors' liquidation in 2011, and Quinton Capital Ltd., which was compulsorily struck off the corporate register in 2015. A few snippets contained in reports regarding two of his insolvent firms: April 1, 2011 - "Statement of Truth" from Nicholas Wood in the "Statement of Affairs" of Almas Capital Partners LLP, of which Wood was a partner with Nichols and which went into liquidation: "I am not in a position to know accurately the financial position of Almas Capital Partners LLP, as Mark Nichols has refused on several occasions to release any information to include bank statements, debtors, creditors, etc." And then on April 27, 2012 - Statement from Cameron Gunn, liquidator of Almas Capital Partners LLP and Almas Capital Investments Limited: "I have attempted to contact the former director, Mark Nichols, who was managing the Companies prior to my appointment. I have been unsuccessful in establishing meaningful contact despite numbers efforts. The inability to interview Mark Nichols has hampered the recovery prospects in the Liquidations. It has led to an extraordinary amount of time attempting to reconstruct the Companies’ financial position, which has been a limited success.”

    Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
    David Marchant
    As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
