Helane Morrison has a list of accomplishments that make us proud to be women, especially those of us who have chosen to work in a male dominated field. She honed her innate sense of “doing right by people” with Supreme Court Justice, Harry A Blackmun as her mentor. He was a person who didn’t give in to threats and fold when his decisions were not popular. He stood by his decisions and protected women’s rights.
She became a full partner at the law firm of Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk and Rabkin. Helane became well versed in how commonplace the misuse of security laws had become and the devastation to corporations and individuals was increasing. She succeeded in securing the trust of the investors by becoming their champion. Her reputation gained the notice of the Securities and Exchange Commission for her next adventure in the world of finance.
Helane worked for the San Francisco branch of the SEC for eleven years as Head of Enforcement and made sure the compliance laws for investing were followed to the letter. The inside trading, the backroom deals, and other types of corrupt investing and trading were not tolerated and the laws were enforced when corruption was discovered.
Helane is an intelligent, dedicated, determined and savvy female and holds the title of General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer for Hall Capital Partners LLC in San Francisco, California. She knows how to teach the art of multitasking as a normal routine because she is the Managing Director, Secretary of the board of Directors, Member of the Executive Committee and Lead Legal and Compliance Functions for the SEC-registered Investment Adviser (See more on Helane’s Bloomberg business page).
These positions were given to her because of the changes she made in the investment arena, years of experience applying the compliance laws, managing large staffs and not turning the other cheek and running when pressured from opposing sides. She protects the investor’s funds through adhering to compliance laws, transparency of the financial transactions and continues to contribute to giving women a voice who hold traditional male positions.
Helane Morrison put her degrees to work from Northwestern University and was awarded her BS in Journalism. She held the position of Editor-in-Chief of the California Law Review while she attended the University of California at Berkeley, School of Law and received her J.D.
