Sangeet is an experienced legal entrepreneur who set up her first law business supporting law firms and lawyers in 2014 and which still continues today.
After completing her law degree in 1991 and Master's qualifications in 1992, Sangeet began her career first as a legal academic holding lecturing and tutoring positions in the UK before she joined the Law Society of Singapore in 1997 as a Director of Training. There, she pioneered the design and delivery of the Society's first programme of learning and development for the legal profession in Singapore.
She then worked as a Professional Support Lawyer in Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer's Singapore office before being appointed to head the Knowledge Management (KM) team and sometimes covered Business Development (BD) work. During her career in Singapore, Sangeet also led the KM team of Baker & McKenzie's local office and occupied a dual KM & BD role in a well-established Corporate & Banking Singapore law firm, Tan Peng Chin LLC.
Sangeet first founded Lex Conscientia in Singapore in 2013 before moving to the United Kingdom permanently in 2014 and setting up in Oxford as her base. Since then, Sangeet continues to help lawyers and law firms in KM, BD, Legal Recruitment and other professional support roles.
The start of 2020 saw Sangeet increasingly involved in the areas of Business and Human Rights, ESG, and Corporate Sustainability projects with her clients. She reads extensively on the subject and has developed a Knowledge Bank of materials in these areas.
With almost 30 years of experience in the legal community, Sangeet is well-placed to understand the legal recruitment needs of law firms, in-house legal teams, and non-governmental organisations in these specialist areas. She is also a rich resource for candidates who hope to take up such roles.
She is an affiliate member of the Institute of Recruitment Professionals and has been providing mentoring services for law students since 2016.
When not busy in the legal world, Sangeet is an artisan cheese connoisseur and has an alter ego, 'The Secret Turophile'.
