Complex technology is at the heart of the financial system. Whether you’re involved in procuring, providing or investing in that technology, our lawyers understand the technicalities. We advise FinTech companies on areas such as:

  • Data protection and data mining
  • Debt capital markets
  • Equity capital markets
  • Financial services regulation
  • Intellectual property protection and exploitation
  • Joint ventures
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Payments
  • Private equity and venture capital
  • Technology procurement and outsourcing

Our clients trust us to provide commercially sensitive and ‘hands-on’ advice.  Our experience in both the technology and financial services space means that we understand the range of issues users and companies face when implementing financial technology, as well as the practical and security issues of using it now and in the future.

With lawyers in the US and across Europe, we are experienced in managing and implementing complex cross-border FinTech transactions.  The companies we have worked with include Bravura, EE, Data Monitor, KPMG, Lloyds Banking Group, PayPal, Travelex, VocaLink and Wirecard.
