Adaptive Service for Disruptive Innovators

Technology sits at the epicenter of the financial markets. It guides and influences billions of business transactions each day from mobile wallets, e-payments, digital assets, cryptocurrencies, blockchain transactions, security tokens, and AI-based asset discovery and management. The vast array of financial technology transactions necessitates broad and sophisticated understanding of financial markets, and a practical grasp of the evolving landscape of laws and regulations.

We represent a variety of clients that provide both services and products in the form of payment technologies, market data, data driven lending, network connectivity, cloud services, blockchain, cryptocurrency, wealth management, and other clients that offer financial services usually offered by traditional banks. With financial services moving rapidly from brick-and-mortar to virtual platforms, the need for legal services expands as our clients must protect customer data, patent technology and designs, license their products and services and negotiate terms of service with customers and vendors. We advise a range of clients including emerging growth companies, start-ups, funds, and angel investors across all forms of financial technology transactions.
