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.
Our strong relationships with regulators, banks, insurers, funds and infrastructure and service providers mean that we understand the issues that affect every area of the financial technology ecosystem. This enables us to deliver incisive, informed and innovative advice across the fintech spectrum.
