Former Deloitte Lawyer Learns You Can’t Just Go Around Kissing People at Work Events (Allegedly)

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.
