We recognize convergence of technology and financial services, and take a multidisciplinary approach to legal and commercial issues.
Our Fintech practice covers the areas of regulatory compliance, tax, data utilization, consumer protection, commercial contracts, mergers and acquisitions, competition and employment.
We have been advising financial institutions, global digital leaders, technology incubators and startups — the entire value chain of the financial technology industry — across a broad range of subsectors including crowdfunding, payment services platforms and e-money, cryptocurrencies and digital banking earlier than many other law firms.
We are adept in addressing issues in market entry, product innovation and licensing, and can spot and mitigate regulatory, IP and contracting risks that can dilute the value of your innovation.
