Luke Nicholls is the Finance Partner heading the Financial Operations team at Bolt Burdon Kemp. He is the firm’s Compliance Officer for Finance and Administration.
Luke joined Bolt Burdon Kemp in July 1999 as a costs draftsman.
Having gained significant experience of recovering costs from Defendants working freelance, Luke relished the opportunity for a new challenge working more closely with solicitors in-house at one of London’s top compensation firms.
By around 2003 Luke was managing a small team dedicated to maximising costs recovery for BBK clients. In April 2009 Luke was extremely proud to become the first Non-Lawyer Partner of the firm, later qualifying as a Costs Lawyer in January 2011.
Whilst Luke continues to be very passionate about costs law and maximising financial performance across BBK, and he continues to provides strategic input and oversight on the goals and objectives of the Costs Team, his role has evolved to encompass all financial aspects of the firm.
