Research lawyer

Helen Finn


With a passion for research and the exploration of innovative solutions to the most complex questions, Helen is constantly on a quest for knowledge


A lawyer cumulating 10 years of experience working with cities, her municipal background gives her a much sought-after edge: issues relating to urban planning, municipal legislation and governing principles, town councils and public consultations, and much more. This experience and deep understanding of the context and constraints relating to municipal law guide her research and push her to find new solutions. 

Her post-graduate studies in law were targetted towards conflict resolution, notably surrounding development projects, in Quebec and internationally: natural resources, environment, social acceptance, Corporate Social Responsibility, voluntary initiatives by the United Nations regarding human rights in dealings with businesses (Business and Human Rights) and advanced conflict resolution techniques. She is also an experienced mediator and gives training on advanced mediation and conflict resolution techniques.
