The Fintech sector is diverse and fast-moving. We combine expertise across corporate, banking, insurance and employment with our expertise in technology, contracts and data protection to provide a holistic approach.

For financial services institutions, we can help you to collaborate effectively with fintechs in order to transform your business. We can help deliver business-critical finance and technology solutions, understanding how new disruptive technologies integrate with existing systems and have the potential to change how your business operates and how services are delivered.

For fintechs, we can help you to build, grow and protect your business and navigate your relationships with larger institutions at all stages of your growth cycle and regarding all aspects of your business operations.

We advise many fast growth technology companies, specifically on their venture capital and growth fundraisings from seed through to later stage Series A, B and C and generally on corporate, commercial, employment and other work. We also act for investors and investment funds focussing on the fintech sector.

Our experience

We have advised a range of clients on their procurement of fintech services and have extensive experience of advising fintech clients on their corporate affairs and contracts. Specific examples of recent experience include advising:

  • A global food purchasing company on its master services contract with a European fintech for payment services and hardware.
  • A fintech company on its initial seed investment round of £1.5 million. The round enabled the company to scale its operations having just completed a successful trial in the FCA’s sandbox.
  • Various fintech businesses on their collaboration with banking and insurance institutions, including drafting regulatory-compliant standard template terms and contract playbooks for the business teams.
  • On the establishment of a global crypto-exchange.

Regardless of size, where fintechs need related business services for day-to-day operations, we can advise on:

  • Early stage corporate advice and company secretarial matters
  • Funding and tax
  • Property and real estate matters
  • Employment and pensions arrangements
  • Intellectual property and technology protection and commercialisation
