With a long and well-established history of advising both the financial services and technology sectors, we have an in-depth understanding of the potential issues relating to the complex technology and regulatory requirements that underpin the financial system. The dynamic nature of the FinTech space means that the technology and regulatory landscape is constantly evolving, creating commercial opportunities as well as potential risks from which you need to protect your business.


With a proven track record of advising well-established financial services businesses and scaling FinTechs, we understand the range of issues you may be facing when deploying financial technology, as well as when using it now and in the future.

We work with technology innovators and disruptors as well as regulated financial entities so whether you’re providing, investing or procuring financial technology, we can guide you smoothly through the process.
