Prior to joining the Hong Kong team, Sumit was based in the firm’s London office where he regularly advised financial institutions on wide-ranging UK and EU regulatory change projects, including on the implementation of the second Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II), the European Market Abuse Regulation, the UK Senior Managers and Certification Regime, the UK ring-fencing regime (on which he was seconded to a major retail bank for six months) and the second European Payments Services Directive.
