LCM hires Australian insolvency expert Helene Roins
Litigation Capital Management Limited, a global provider of disputes funding, has announced the hire of Helene Roins as an Investment Manager based in the office of Sydney.
Helene has extensive experience in insolvency and restructuring, commercial litigation, insurance disputes and class actions. She joins LCM after more than two years with a Sydney-based litigation funder where she was responsible for the assessment and management of a number of high-profile insolvency projects and class actions.
Helene spent 15 years in private practice, most recently as a Senior Associate at TressCox Lawyers, where she acted for corporations, shareholders, directors and insolvency practitioners in litigations involving insolvency and restructuring, bankruptcies, insurance, intellectual property and other commercial disputes across State and Federal jurisdictions.
Among Helene’s notable achievements, she has conducted various liquidator’s examinations in the Supreme and Federal Court under the Corporations Act, led a team of lawyers in defending an A$30 million claim under a D&O policy on behalf of an insurer and acted for a shareholder in Federal Court proceedings commenced against the company and its directors for the unlawful reduction in share capital, and unlawful re-organisation of the company and breach of officer’s duties.
“We are very pleased to welcome Helene to the LCM team. Helene is a highly experienced practitioner with a specialisation in insolvency claims which is an area where we anticipate there will be significant growth for LCM in the next 12 to 18 months. Helene will be a great addition to our high-performing team of investment managers, and she joins at an exciting period of growth for LCM globally", said LCM’s Chief Executive Officer Patrick Moloney.
“I am delighted to be joining such a reputable organisation that has experienced strong growth over the past few years. LCM’s history and strong track record, particularly in insolvency and commercial litigation claims funding, is strongly aligned with my own experience in both private practice and more recently in the litigation finance industry", expressed Helene Roins.
Helene also is a member of the Law Society of NSW, the Women’s Insolvency Network Australia, and Women in Insolvency and Restructuring Victoria.
