Nexus Sea is a litigator and trial lawyer who has played key roles in high-profile matters on behalf of Fortune 500 companies, financial institutions, and pharmaceutical companies in complex commercial litigation, financial services, and product liability matters in state and federal courts.

A member of Orrick’s Complex Litigation and Dispute Resolution practice, Nexus has extensive financial services litigation and white collar experience, including the representation of individual and corporate clients. This includes conducting internal investigations on behalf of financial institutions, participating in the successful prosecution of a FINRA action on behalf of an international bank, and the representation of numerous individual foreign claimants in the largest civil forfeiture action brought under the United States Department of Justice’s Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative. In addition, Nexus played a prominent role as part of the court-appointed counsel team to the Securities Investor Protection Act Trustee for the global liquidation of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC, one of the largest financial frauds in history.
Nexus has also played key roles in the successful representation of a multinational Fortune 500 pharmaceutical company against failure-to-warn and product defect claims, a Fortune 500 bank and premises owner in more than 340 toxic tort personal injury suits arising from the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and successfully advocated for cable and elevator manufacturers in response to asbestos-related product liability matters.
Recognizing the importance of community, Nexus is a founding member of “1844” – an association of nearly 60 African American male attorneys – created as a vehicle to promote collaboration, business development, and mentorship among BigLaw attorneys of color. Nexus is also a member of the Metropolitan Black Bar Association and mentors college and law students who are interested in private practice. Nexus served as President of the Nigerian Lawyers Association from 2014-2016, where he promoted building strong, diverse communities at home and abroad.
