Litigation Capital Management welcomes new investment manager
Global funder Litigation Capital Management has bolstered its Sydney team with a new investment manager.
With extensive experience in insolvency and restructuring, commercial litigation, insurance disputes and class actions, Helene Roins joins LCM after more than two years with Litigation Lending Services, where she was responsible for the assessment and management of a number of high-profile insolvency projects and class actions.
“We are very pleased to welcome Helene to the LCM team,” LCM chief executive Patrick Moloney said.
“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.”
Prior to her transition into litigation finance, Ms Roins spent 15 years in private practice, most recently as a senior associate at TressCox Lawyers (now HWL Ebsworth Lawyers) where she acted for corporations, shareholders, directors and insolvency practitioners in a variety of litigation involving insolvency and restructuring, bankruptcies, insurance, intellectual property and other commercial disputes across state and federal jurisdictions.
Among Ms Roins 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 a $30 million claim under a D&O policy on behalf of an insurer.
She also acted for a shareholder in Federal Court proceedings commenced against the company and its directors for the unlawful reduction in share capital, unlawful reorganisation of the company and breach of officer’s duties.
“I am delighted to be joining such a reputable organisation that has experienced strong growth over the past few years,” Ms Roins said on her move.
“LCM’s history and strong track record, particularly in insolvency and commercial litigation claims funding, [are] strongly aligned with my own experience in both private practice and more recently in the litigation finance industry.”
