Helen Archibald

Chief Operating Officer



Chairing this year’s event is Helen Archibald, the Chief Operating Officer of Thorntons, one of Scotland’s largest full service law firms.  With around 500 people, Thorntons is headquartered in Dundee with offices across Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, Tayside and Fife.  As Thorntons’ first COO, Helen joined in 2016 to help the business deliver its ambitious aims for turnover and profit through a period of significant growth.  Previously Helen worked in the leisure and education sectors throughout the UK.

Thorntons is one of four law firms which have a formal collaboration agreement, something which was conceived out of the first ALM Summit in 2016.  Helen has been instrumental in the development of the collaboration and you will hear from her, and the managing partners of the firms, when they open the Samoan Circle conversation at the end of day one.
