Sachin Bansal is Director and Senior Litigation Counsel at Royal Bank of Canada where he is responsible for managing complex litigation and regulatory enforcement matters primarily affecting RBC Capital Markets, RBC’s U.S. investment bank. Sachin oversees, directs, and sets strategy for a large docket of cases, accountable from inception to conclusion, and is an active participant at all stages. In addition, he has litigated and resolved numerous matters without the use of external counsel. He has particular expertise with significant regulatory inquiries where he conducts internal investigations, partners with RBC’s businesses and functions to provide advice relating to risks arising from such matters, and regularly interfaces and appears before U.S. authorities. His responsibilities also include hands-on management of RBC’s outside counsel relationships, outside counsel spend, and cost control strategies. He has led the implementation of several cost-savings initiatives, including the use of alternative fee arrangements and secondees, which have saved millions of dollars each fiscal quarter.

Beyond the legal department, Sachin serves as:

• Diversity recruiting co-captain for one of RBC’s core U.S. schools for entry-level hiring for RBC’s business units; and
• Creator and co-lead of a global learning initiative between RBC’s legal and compliance departments involving topical presentations on issues relevant to RBC’s businesses

Sachin is the recipient of several awards, both from RBC and its legal department, particularly for his continued contributions to diversity and inclusion, especially on LGBT+ issues. For example, in 2018, Sachin won a $25,000 diversity award to donate to charity.

Away from the office, Sachin is not your typical lawyer: he is professionally trained in stand-up comedy by the world-famous Comedy Cellar in New York and has been performing regularly onstage for 5 years! As a result, Sachin is frequently a sought-after speaker, particularly on topics involving litigation and enforcement, legal practice, and all things diversity and pro bono.

He received his bachelor’s degree, magna cum laude, from Duke University, and his law degree, magna cum laude, from Duke University School of Law.
