Area of focus


We are a partner in your journey. We’re with you from innovation to IPO.

We are excited by innovation and committed to ensuring that our FinTech clients develop sustainable businesses that are legally fit for the future.

We have one of the largest and most experienced FinTech-focused global legal teams, covering payments, consumer finance, transaction banking, investment management, marketplaces, exchanges and cryptoassets.

Our team will help you understand, anticipate and distill the web of regulation in this area to ensure your business has all the tools it needs to succeed. We have been advising FinTechs on the ever-changing landscape since the launch of Zopa (the world’s first P2P lender) in 2004, and have advised many FinTechs at all stages of their growth cycle.
