Helen has over 9 years' experience as a consultant advising a wide range of clients (including in the financial services, payments technology and public sectors) on non-financial risk, regulatory compliance and governance matters.
Her experience also spans various areas of European and US regulation, including data protection, cyber and physical security, stress testing and depositor protection.
Prior to joining Consulting by A&O Shearman in 2022, Helen was a Manager in Grant Thornton’s Business Risk and Financial Services Business. During this time, she undertook a year secondment to a Tier 1 Bank to support their remediation programme following her involvement in an end-to-end review of their compliance with the EU Deposit Guarantee Scheme (DGSD) and supporting local legislation.
A&O Shearman was formed on May 1, 2024 by the combination of Shearman & Sterling LLP and Allen & Overy LLP and their respective affiliates (the legacy firms). Any matters referred to above may include matters undertaken by one or more of the legacy firms rather than A&O Shearman.
