Nigel Morris-Cotterill joined a law firm in his school and college holidays, starting at just 15 years of age. From the outset, he demonstrated an aptitude for litigation, within weeks beginning to make - and win - applications in the County Courts. He made his first appearance as an advocate in open court at the age of only 16 years. He won. He also worked on a wide range of criminal trials. Before starting his own firm, he worked as a locum in a variety of firms, from major City of London firms to one-man-bands in tiny towns, gaining exposure to a wide range of cases and techniques. In his own firm, Morris-Cotterill acted for some of Europe's largest financial institutions, major international corporations and for individuals, delivering the same standard of service to all. He retired from full time practice in 1994 to concentrate on developing a money laundering risk management and compliance consultancy which grew into The Anti Money Laundering Network, an international group encompassing consultancy, training, software and publications. He no longer practises but is available to assist law firms on a non-practising consultancy basis. "Sun Tzu and the Art of Litigation" applies to litigation in any court, in any Common Law system anywhere in the world. Morris-Cotterill is the author of "How Not To Be A Money Launderer: the avoidance of money laundering and fraud in your organisation" (reprinted 2011 and available paperback and e-book: see www.countermoneylaundering.com) and countless articles and papers including published academic research.
