Before commencing pupillage, Humayoun served as a senior advisor at a prominent international corporate advisory firm. During his tenure, he managed a prestigious client portfolio that included several FTSE100 companies and clients from diverse international backgrounds, spanning the USA, Dubai, and Japan. His practice primarily focused on guiding clients through intricate business challenges, such as mergers and acquisitions, initial public offerings, and shareholder activism. His postgraduate research, which focused on areas such as companies’ regulation, investment law, and capital markets, naturally equipped him for success in this role, and he was involved in several major recent mergers of multi-national companies, working closely with the Competition and Markets Authority and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Throughout his academic journey, he displayed dedication to debating, representing his university in numerous national competitions. He forged impactful partnerships with NGOs in coordination with law enforcement agencies, earning him the prestigious Gold Manchester Leadership Award in recognition of his exceptional contributions. After university, he went onto work with global foundations targeting diplomatic influence, and regularly engaged with diplomats and ambassadors on campaigns across the world which aimed to encourage governments to invest in digital financial services, and to prompt the UK government to increase its aid commitment.
The summer preceding the commencement of his pupillage was devoted to representing individuals in local licencing authority hearings, mooting competitively, marshalling several senior members of the judiciary, and taking part in pro bono projects.
