As a senior associate in our Commercial and Regulatory team, Helen Kimberley helps clients manage their businesses.
She is experienced in advising on and documenting complex commercial arrangements such as strategic alliances and transitional arrangements. She also deals with everyday arrangements that keep businesses running from supply and distribution to endorsement agreements and standard terms and conditions.
Helen's practice focuses on life sciences, communications, food and retail industries. She understands the regulated environment in which her clients operate and is able to advise on both business to business and business to consumer arrangements.
