Sejal Gandhi, a senior associate in the energy and natural resources practice, has been shortlisted for the Asian Women of Achievement (“AWA”) Awards 2017 in the Young Achiever category. The AWA Awards are a celebration of Asian heroines of British life. Founded by Pinky Lilani CBE DL in 1999, the awards focus on women making contributions across fields such as business, entrepreneurship, social and humanitarian work.

Sejal joined the firm as a trainee in September 2010 and qualified into the energy and natural resources group. Her practice focuses on transactional and contentious matters and she has a particular interest in international trading. She will shortly be returning to the office after an 8-month secondment to an international oil and gas major’s Global Litigation team during which she has worked on a number of trading and shipping disputes.

The winners will be announced in a ceremony at the London Hilton on Park Lane on 10 May.
