We know

We have consistently held the position of market-leaders in advising on the application of new technologies to finance, from the implementation of SWIFT payments to the advent of blockchain and digital currencies, and everything in-between. Long before the term “fintech” was coined, we had been working on many of the most prominent and ground-breaking technological developments in financial markets for many years.
