Women in America have to work extra hard to earn the respect they deserve. Helane Morrison has always been up to the task. She has long been able to stand out no matter where she has gone. While studying law at UC Berkley, she was editor in chief of the California Law Review. When she worked with the Securities and Exchange Commission, she took on high profile companies and received numerous promotions. Now with Hall Capital Partners, Morrison is showing she has what it takes to be successful in business as well. She’s recently been selected a member of the company’s executive committee.
Success is nothing new to Helane Morrison. She has always been willing to put in the hard work and dedication it takes to do well. Plus the native of Brooklyn, New York seems to have been blessed with a great mind. She earned a BA in Journalism from Northwestern University. Morrison then got a law degree at the University of California, Berkley. She followed this up by working for two years as a law clerk first for Appeals Court judge Richard A. Posner and then with Supreme Court judge Harry Blackmun. Morrison was then hired by San Francisco law firm Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin and made partner 5 years later.
After a successful law career, Morrison caught the attention of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The organization hired her to lead their San Francisco Regional Office. By the time Helane Morrison left the SEC 11 years later, she had vigorously prosecuted well-known companies for fraud and insider trading and was beloved for going to bat for senior citizens and other people that were allegedly taken advantage of by unscrupulous business people. That led to her receiving a series of promotions and given the power to oversee the training programs and enforcement arms of the organization’s office in the northwestern United States.
In 2007 she decided to leave the Securities and Exchange Commission and take a foray into business. She became general counsel and CCO for Hall Capital Partners, LLC. As usual she has been a smashing success. The company, which manages the finances for some of the world’s wealthiest families, first promoted Helane Morrison to a business manger position.
