Helena Franceschi is a member of Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP's litigation practice group and a member of the Women’s Initiatives Committee at Cahill. 

Helena’s practice focuses on the representation of leading financial institutions, including commercial and investment banks, broker/dealers and asset managers in connection with regulatory investigations, examinations, enforcement actions, and litigation.  She regularly represents clients in connection with investigations and examinations conducted by the Department of Justice, SEC, CFTC, state attorneys general, self-regulatory organizations and foreign regulators. 

Helena’s matters are frequently cross-border in nature due to the sophistication and global reach of her clients.  She routinely handles matters relating to competition and market manipulation issues with respect to investment banking and global markets, including both exchange-traded and over the counter products. 

In 2020, Helena was named to Benchmark Litigation’s 40 & Under Hot List and as a Litigation Rising Star finalist for the Women in Business Law Awards.
