Jassen Venkatasamy is in trouble before the Solicitors Regulation Authority, the regulatory body for registered solicitors (lawyers) in England and Wales, over an event that occurred last year at a Deloitte shindig. He’s been practicing since 2018.
The accusation is that on March 17, 2022, Jassen and colleagues were at the Waldorf Hotel in London for a social event organized by Deloitte. While there, he kissed an unidentified person on the lips, conduct the SRA said was “inappropriate and/or unwanted and/or sexually motivated.” And/or creepy.
The allegation is as yet unproven, he’ll be going before a Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal now and the SRA could decide to bar him from practice or fine him. Said Deloitte in a comment to City A.M.: “As this is an ongoing regulatory matter, it would not be appropriate to comment.”
He no longer works for Deloitte.
