About

Lucet was founded by Helen Sunderland-Cohen to serve businesses needing advice that is creative and a little out of the box.

Helen was raised in Switzerland, the UK and Australia, and lived in China for over 15 years, where she was the only foreign partner of a leading local corporate law firm. Her practice focussed on advising both international and local clients, from Fortune500 companies to start-ups, on cross-border, corporate/commercial issues.

A lawyer qualified in New York and England & Wales, Helen holds degrees from Bryn Mawr College and the University of Washington School of Law. She speaks Mandarin and German, is proficient in French, and attempts Hebrew. She is passionate about art, travel, food & wine, family, and new ideas.
