Financial Services

We think legal services to the finance sector needs a bit of a shake-up.

That’s why we do things differently – using our in-depth knowledge of your regulated world, to think creatively. We are tech focused, accessible and responsive. We give commercially minded, pragmatic advice.

Our clients include banks, payment services and e-money institutions, mortgage providers insurers, brokers, MGAs, credit institutions and pension providers—as well as IFAs, wealth managers and placing agents.

We have particular expertise and experience in financial services regulation, financial disputes, insurance law, FinTech and InsurTech, as well as cryptoassets. But that’s not all we do.

We also often team up with commercial, banking & finance, corporate, and employment lawyers from across our firm, who all have a particular interest in the finance sector.  Together, we work collaboratively with our clients to provide them with the comprehensive legal advice they need.

So, whatever the challenge, we’ve got your back. And thanks to our global connections, we can support your ambitions anywhere in the world.
