Financial Technology (FinTech)

Innovation and disruption are the hall­marks of the financial technology (FinTech) sector.  FinTech companies are pushing the boundaries of technology and the law in various areas including blockchains and initial coin offerings, virtual currencies, crowdfunding, payment services, supply chain financing platforms, investment funds and advice, exchanges and trade finance.  

We have worked extensively with our FinTech clients on cutting-edge FinTech regulatory and transactional projects, and developed innovative legal solutions to meet their needs.  We are passionate about the tech aspects of FinTech.  Our commercial legal and risk management advice is enhanced by our understanding of the promise and limitations of the technology underlying your solution.

We have significant experience in dealing with local and regional regulators on both routine and novel matters.  The strength of our regulatory and compliance practice lies in our ability to offer clients an in-depth knowledge of the regulatory landscape and clear guidance on complex regulatory issues.  We can help you obtain necessary licences and ensure compliance with legal and local regulatory requirements.
