Veronica K. McGregor

Veronica McGregor has deep experience in all aspects of the payments landscape. Veronica works with companies ranging from FinTech startups to major technology companies as well as those investing in FinTech.

Specifically, her practice focuses on payment systems, financial services, virtual and cryptocurrencies, mobile banking payments/commerce, prepaid cards, consumer lending, anti-money laundering issues, and privacy/data security. She represents businesses and individuals across a variety of financial services-related matters. Her clients include technology companies, banks, payment system providers, virtual currency platforms, retailers, social networking companies, gaming companies, online service providers, and app developers.

With entrepreneurial DNA inherited from her father and over 15 years of bank regulatory training, Veronica is uniquely suited to partner with clients on the front lines of FinTech product development. She serves as an interpreter in partnerships between regulated entities, like banks, and unregulated entities, such as tech companies. She helps businesses navigate the patchwork of state and federal laws and regulations that they inevitably encounter as they design innovative payment systems.

Veronica is a niche practitioner who applies her deep knowledge of the rules governing the electronic movement of money to effectively bridge the communication and operational gap between the traditional banks and the rebels of FinTech.

Veronica sits down with clients of all sizes to help troubleshoot their products before they are launched to ensure there are no regulatory issues that would inhibit them. This type of collaboration is crucial to the success and continued innovation of Veronica's clients and the payments industry as a whole.

Veronica is very active in the FinTech legal industry. She holds numerous leadership positions and is a prolific speaker on the subject.
