Helen is a Research Consultant who works with RSG on a project basis.

Helen is a journalist and corporate writer with nearly 20 years of experience writing for and about business and the legal industry. After a stint as a television researcher she served as the City Editor for The Lawyer, Economics Correspondent for CityAM, City Correspondent for the Sunday Telegraph, Defence Editor for the Telegraph Group and M&A Correspondent for The Times.

Helen continues to write features for leading titles on a freelance basis, as well as contributing occasional columns to the Irish Times. Most recently she researched and ghost-wrote a well-received book on the Do’s and Don’ts of global M&A for Economist Books. She also provides internal and external corporate content for financial services companies – principally banks and private equity houses – as well as for professional services firms including accountants and lawyers. Helen is working on her first novel: “Eat the Boomers”, a fictional tale of cannibalism in Hackney founded in real intergenerational economic injustice.

Helen studied law at Birmingham University, then completed her LPC at Chester College of Law. She realised the day before starting her training contract she did not want to be a lawyer, but she has never completely managed to escape them.
