In the title compound, [Ni(C19H18Cl2N2O2)], the NiII atom shows a slightly distorted square-planar geometry. The dihedral angle between the mean planes of the coordination rings is 9.15 (12)° while the dihedral angle between the mean planes of the two aromatic rings is 3.48 (16)°. In the crystal, pairs of inter­molecular C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link neighboring mol­ecules into a chain along the a axis. The crystal structure is further stabilized by π–π inter­actions [centroid–centroid distance = 3.883 (2) Å]
