PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) partner Tony Lomas has been leading the attempts to sort out Lehman's European network of trades and investments.
"This has been the most complex （破产） case I have ever dealt with and am ever likely to," Mr Lomas said.

"I think we will break the back of the case in the next 30 to 36 months, but the rest of the case will continue for many years after that," he said.
Mr Lomas has worked on some the UK's biggest administration cases, including MG Rover and BCCI bank, but said the Lehman case was his biggest task yet.
PwC has 200 of its own staff working on the case along with 400 former Lehman employees working on the administration.
PwC hopes that eventually it will be able to return money to the many Lehman around the world.
The administration team is also preparing to file a claim of around 0bn (￡84bn) against Lehman's parent company in New York.

Cash from the European operation was regularly transferred between London and New York, but many felt that Lehman's London employees had lost out due to the convention.
Despite the massive claim, Lomas says he does not expect to get much of the 0bn after it has been through the US courts.
