Yasmin Waljee OBE

International Pro Bono Partner
Hogan Lovells, London

I have been key to establishing and embedding a pro bono culture within Hogan Lovells. The objective is to deliver an outstanding pro bono service to charities, individuals and social enterprises in need who would not otherwise be able to afford such advice. I helped the firm achieve this by designing and implementing pro bono projects which draw on the firm's commercial legal knowledge and skills to produce measurable outcomes nationally and internationally. I am an international human rights lawyer and have advised on issues relating to compensation for victims of crime and terrorism including the July 7 bombing victims, the right to life, and regularly works on public policy issues in this area. I co-lead the firm's award-winning social enterprise and social finance practice.
