Fintech

Fintech

We support innovation that improves efficiency and reduces costs and that promotes financial inclusion and the democratisation of investing.

We know the current regulatory uncertainty around virtual assets presents challenges and roadblocks to those who strive to be best-in-class. We also know that as more jurisdictions move to regulate to promote DLT in their financial markets, the law will never be able to fully keep up with tech developments. We believe best-in-class fintech developers will thrive in a transparent regulated environment that protects investors, that has the flexibility to be future proof and that promotes further and continuing innovation. With so much regulatory uncertainty in this space, we are committed to supporting fintech developers deliver their business plans and whitepapers. This is why we are one of the first international law firms to receive a branch license in the AIFC, the world’s newest financial centre and a jurisdiction committed to providing a robust regulatory environment for fintech companies within an English common law framework.

Our lawyers are highly motivated and entrepreneurial individuals who are“self-starters” and thrive in commercial environments.
