Best & Flanagan Welcomes Helen Sullivan-Looney

Best & Flanagan is pleased to announce that Helen Sullivan-Looney has joined the firm as an Associate in our Litigation practice group.

Helen has been living in Cambodia where she worked as a senior legal consultant at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC). Set up by the United Nations, the ECCC investigates and prosecutes senior leaders of the Khmer Rouge and those most responsible for serious violations of international and national law. 

Working with international teams assembled from different cultural and legal backgrounds, Helen successfully developed defense strategies and tactics and drafted motions to protect her clients’ fair trial rights. Much of her research regarding the litigation of substantive and procedural issues represented the first time questions concerning the definition and application of crimes against humanity in the 1970s had been addressed by an international or hybrid international tribunal.

“We are really excited to have Helen bring the remarkable litigation skills she has developed in her unique career to our civil litigation practice,” said Sarah Crippen, Managing Partner at Best & Flanagan. “Helen will provide smart, sophisticated and practical advice and advocacy to our clients and is a perfect fit for our team-based, client-centric approach to litigation.”

Before pursuing an LLM degree in international criminal law and human rights law, Helen began her career as a New Hampshire public defender. She is a graduate of Universiteit Utrecht in The Netherlands, Case Western Reserve University School of Law, and Cornell University.
