Involving a litigator in your business does not have to start when you get into a dispute

Our FinTech Disputes practice is made up of a cross-jurisdictional team of lawyers specialising in financial, commercial and technology related disputes in the FinTech sector. Our international approach to FinTech disputes reflects the market approach to decentralised and multi-jurisdictional businesses.

The team is well placed to advise you on a range of matters including FinTech joint venture disputes, payments, FinTech investment disputes, IT disputes, cryptocurrency disputes, AI-related businesses as well as the more general commercial and corporate disputes you might face in this sector. We work closely with our financial regulatory and data privacy teams whilst also linking into our firms full service offering to ensure your needs are fully met.

All of our FinTech litigators have substantial finance litigation expertise and understand the wider ecosystem that you operate in. This is coupled with substantial experience in relation to technology issues more generally bringing a unique offering to your business.
