Who am I

I am Ruby Sandhu, a retired senior lawyer, prior partner of international and city law practices with a client base and network which is global. As a retired lawyer I am able to provide advice from the space of a trusted advisor and beyond that of a prescriptive approach of the law. I am also a trained and accredited mediator and I teach and assess at one of the leading schools in London as well as teaching programs on Sustainability and Business and Human Rights.

My unique offering

Doing the Right Thing is important to me as are Trust and Integrity in Business.

I do NOT apply prescriptive approaches to problems and neither do I rehash the old way of doing things. I pioneer and set trends.

What do I do?

Advice on:
  • Business and Human Rights
  • Corporate Social Responsibility
  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Compliance and Risk
  • Training and Workshops
  • Mediation
  • Consultancy

My work is my passion

I work with a diverse range of clients including Governments, Multinationals, iNGOs, charities, individuals and HNW around the world. There is no such thing as a difficult problem. My work is to lead and implement on projects which work in frontier, emerging and developing markets and encompass Sustainability and Business and Human Rights. I have worked on impossible and difficult mandates requiring thinking outside of the box and I have brought in experience away from the usual organisational silos and built on my experience in international human rights law, corporate commercial law, mediation and sustainability to provide sustainable and comprehensive advice and solutions.

Countries that I have worked in

Russia, Venezuela, Nigeria, Singapore, USA, Canada, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Bulgaria, Brussels, France, Geneva, Italy, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, India, Thailand, Nigeria, Pakistan, China, Japan, Thailand, Dubai, Portugal, Italy, Cameroon, Eritrea.

Charity

I invest my time heavily in pro bono and charitable work including as an animal rights advocate. I am an active trustee, tutor and assessor of the Society of Mediators, active Vice Chair of SIHRG and prior a member of the Law Society of England & Wales Business and Human Rights Advisory Group and International UNICEF committees. I enjoy extreme sports and yoga.
