Our fintech team has wide-ranging experience of advising on fintech, blockchain and cryptocurrency-related matters.
The Fladgate fintech team is made up of specialists in a variety of practice areas including corporate, capital markets, financial regulatory, funds, commercial and data protection.
Our fintech practice advises start-ups, established fintech companies and financial institutions on matters related to fintech, blockchain and cryptocurrency including:
- Initial token offerings and initial coin offerings
- Cryptocurrency service providers such as cryptocurrency exchanges and cryptocurrency platforms
- The regulation of crypto-assets
We have particular expertise in helping clients structure their businesses to address the legal and regulatory concerns in this complex area. We also benefit from broad market knowledge and are therefore able to provide clients with practical solutions and insights into current practice.
A growing proportion of our work has an international dimension and our strategy is based on our resolute independence. Rather than operating a number of overseas offices, we aim to combine our lawyers’ experience with that of the most appropriate local law firm. This enables us to provide our clients with advice from specialists with the most relevant experience in each jurisdiction, delivered in a collaborative way. We are experienced in coordinating multi-jurisdictional teams to manage our clients’ needs around the globe and have good links with a number of firms in the main crypto-friendly jurisdictions.
