Helen Gredd Honored as Trailblazer in White Collar Criminal Defense
LSW congratulates partner Helen Gredd, who was recognized by the Women’s White Collar Defense Association (WWCDA) at its Annual Gala as among the “trailblazing women whose tireless efforts paved the way for today’s WWCDA.” After a distinguished career in the SDNY as a prosecutor who served in various supervisory roles, including Chief of Appeals and First Deputy Chief of the Criminal Division, Helen entered private practice at LSW as an impassioned defense lawyer. Helen has fought and won for her clients in some of the most complex and high stakes legal challenges of our time, and it is no surprise that her colleagues have repeatedly said that if they ever needed a lawyer, Helen would be their first call.
The WWCDA promotes the common business and professional interests of women attorneys who specialize in the representation of corporations, other organizations and individuals facing government enforcement actions (criminal, civil, regulatory, and administrative), and in internal investigations, compliance and ethics matters. The WWCDA has more than 2,500 women in the practice of white collar defense in 45 chapters throughout North America, Europe, Latin America, and Asia Pacific. Many members previously served in government positions and in corporate roles. Notable members include former corporate General Counsels and Chief Compliance Officers, as well as former prosecutors and high ranking government officials.
