The extensive and varied set of experiences in the corporate world, the legal profession and even the world of higher learning have served to transform Nicholas Assef into one of the most tenacious and shrewd negotiators and advisors in the business world. For example, Nick Assef tends to apply strategies and tactics based largely on "game theory" just because he can, and because he knows it secures the best possible outcome for his clients.

One reason for that is, Nick Assef knows well that clients don’t hire him or a firm like Lincoln Crowne & Company Pty. Limited, to get ordinary outcomes via basic services, which they can get from thousands of other firms and advisors. They want advice and counsel that is something special. That is why Nicholas Assef founded Lincoln Crowne in the first place; he wanted to create a leading investment firm in the Australian and South East Asian markets. As the firm’s Executive Director and Senior Analyst, Nick Assef uses the skills he developed through more than two decades’ experience in such diverse financial areas as mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and much more to make his clients very happy.
