Helane Morrison has been building her career as a compliance officer for many years. She has been working in this field for well over 30 years and still continues to perform her duties with the same level of intensity. Morrison knows that her job is very important. Especially, in the world of finance and business where corruption and fraud can easily get out of control.
People who are familiar with Morrison knows that she is a no nonsense woman who is committed to stopping any unethical or illegal activity that might take place within a corporation or company.
Morrison’s career began back in the 1980’s after she graduated from Northwestern University with a Bachelor’ degree.

Richard Posen of the US Court of Appeals for the Seventh District.
During her time with Posen, Morrison learned the importance of being committed to justice and being ethically sound. Posen was the type of judge who did not play around when it came to trying a case or dealing with wrongdoers. Once these lessons were learned Morrison they continued to influence Morrison for the rest of her life.
Helane Morrison eventually went to work for a law firm in 1986. The firm was called Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin. She worked at this firm for about 10 years.

She became a partner with her firm in 1991 and specialized in dealing with business litigation and defense of private securities actions. Morrison also began to deal with the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) during this time.
