Currently, Helane Morrison serves in three different capacities at the Hall Capital Partners. She is the chief compliance officer, managing director and general counsel of the corporation. It is my view that she is intelligent and shrewd to handle three positions in an institution that is run by women. Before joining the company, she worked at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) between 1999 and 2007. Here, she was mandated with the duty of checking on regulation compliance, securities law enforcement and fraud litigation. Helane was in charge of 5 states located in Northwest and Northern California.
Immediately after passing the bar, she went on to work for Hon. Richard Posen as a law clerk. Helane also worked for Justice Harry Blackmun between 1985 and 1986. For 10 years, Helane worked at the Howard, Rice Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin. It is my belief that her record of achievement resulted in her becoming a partner at the law firm. Helane joined Hall Capital Partners because she realized that investors had little confidence in financial experts. At the corporation, Helane seeks to restore public confidence so that individuals can start investing in the financial markets. Over the years, Helane has fought against corporate crimes. Helane’s taste for justice matured as she worked with Blackmun. She made a career choice of devoting herself to private practices in order to have adequate time to fight corruption in the financial industry.
