A structurally persistent bis-amido ligand framework capable of supporting nickel compounds in three different oxidation states has been identified. A highly unusual, isolable Ni­(III) alkyl species has been prepared and characterized via a rare example of a two-electron oxidative addition of MeI to Ni­(I).
