Helix kicked lots of goals in 2022. We have lots of exciting things to unveil in 2023!
At the outset, on behalf of the entire Helix team, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our clients, family, and friends for all the support we have received in 2022.
There is no point in sugarcoating things. 2022 has been a very challenging year for the construction industry. However, in all instances, we have put the interests of our clients first and foremost in our considerations.
We have continued to deliver high-quality legal assistance to clients but we do much more than that.
As Janelle Kerrisk stated in a recent article entitled Choose your own adventure:
One of the things we have done since the inception of Helix six years ago is to provide information concerning industry issues via opinion articles by me. These articles are not intended to be legal advice which makes a lot of sense since I am not a lawyer!
However, I hope they get any parties reading them, interested in finding out more information.
Mission accomplished if this happens.
Please see below a list of all 25 articles I have written during 2022.

Watch this space!
2023 promises to be a very exciting year for all things Helix. At this moment, I am not a liberty to reveal all in this regard, but one thing I can talk about is:
Commencing in February 2023, along with my friend Emily Taylor, we will be hosting a new Helix Podcast series.
We already have some people lined up but if anybody wants to feature in this series, please reach out to our team.
Finally, we want people to see this podcast as an opportunity for industry participants. While we will be talking about very serious issues, we want to give participants the opportunity to demonstrate that they are capable of ‘walking the talk’ when grappling with finding meaningful solutions to serious industry issues.
We will be announcing the start of the podcast next year on our Helix Legal LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram page. Be sure to follow our socials or subscribe to our newsletter.Not intended as legal advice. Read full disclaimer.
