The name Helane Morrison is one which most people are unfamiliar with, this is unfortunate as she is a individual whose theater of works deserve a great deal of time in the light. During the 2007 financial collapse, countless voices screamed of a coming economic implosion, one which was not just national, bound by state lines but was international, global. Financial institutions the world over faced total insolvency and quickly turned to their respective governments (and even outside governments) for financial relief – bail outs. Not just that but with the nations of the world faced a existential crisis from massive, all time high unemployment a series of extremely important questions rose from the collapsing infrastructure.
Namely, who to trust and with what? What is the source of one’s nations wealth, is there any physical backing to one’s currency? What will become of one’s investments, nest eggs, savings, retirement funds?
With these questions came great scrutiny as massive amounts of previously well concealed information and with this sudden deluge of hitherto unknown data came the realization of corruption on a enormous scale. This is where Helane Morrison enters the stage; after rising quickly to the attention of various law firms during the 80s, Morrison enters into the law firm of HRNCFR with a specialty of security violations. Not long after that Morrison was contracted by the US government into the office of Securities and Exchange.
During this position she effortlessly combined her previous experience in journalism and law to prosecute a astounding series of extraordinarily high profile companies involved in series financial fraud. Some of these shocked even the lawyers and experts involved, such as Hewllet Packard, Google, Next Card Inc and even HBO. During her investigation, Morrison and her associates exposed over fifty thousand fake securities saving thousands upon thousands of US citizens their hard earned savings.
Most recently she has won the lauded, Most Influential Woman in the Bay Area and Public sector and so prolific is her staggering career that she’s won MIW Bay Area award three previous times!
