Client profile: Ruwan De Soyza, Worldpay

Promoted to group GC at the start of the year, the experienced M&A lawyer on why he wants to stay hands-on

When Ruwan De Soyza arrived for his interview with former Worldpay general counsel (GC) Mark Chambers in 2011, he thought he was being considered for the role of GC for corporate services. Unbeknown to De Soyza, Chambers had a different path in mind, which ultimately led to him taking the group GC role in January this year.
