As new technology continues to innovate, disrupt and advance the traditional financial industry, companies are often left to navigate the challenges of the global web of regulation and policy, including how to efficiently plan for the future. Our global FinTech and Digital Assets Practice advises traditional and emerging companies on a wide range of regulatory, policy, enforcement, transactional and litigation matters involving FinTech, payments, open banking, digital assets (including cryptocurrencies, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), stablecoins and security tokens) and blockchain technology.

Our team members have a wealth of extensive experience in private practice, in-house and at senior government levels, bringing knowledge from different disciplines and perspectives.
