Legal investigations firm Nardello & Co has hired former Serious Fraud Office (SFO) assistant director Helen Garlick as a senior director of investigations.

Garlick quit the SFO in June following a change of management. While there she led the four-year probe into BAE Systems and oversaw investigations into former Nigerian head of state Sani Abacha and Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi. Garlick also served as the first head of the SFO’s Overseas Corruption Unit.
