Ms Andrea Beatty
Financial Services & FinTech
Piper Alderman has a strong focus on the IT and financial services sectors, advising on privacy and commercial data considerations, alongside maintaining an incident response offering. The team is led by Melbourne’s Tim Clark , who advises IT clients on data protection and privacy policies, data breach notifications and data collection practices, as well as data considerations for IT contracts, alongside Sydney’s Andrea Beatty, who specialises in the financial services sector and has a focus on incident responses, particularly relating to ransomware attacks.
The financial services and fintech team at domestic Australian firm Piper Alderman advises major domestic and international financial institutions, funds, and fintech start-ups across a broad range of financial regulatory matters. These include regulatory investigations and disputes, licence applications, payment systems, investment schemes, and crypto-asset exchanges. Headed by regulatory authority Shannon Adams at the Adelaide office, the team has used the ‘Paid by Coins’ payment gateway to allow clients to pay for service with leading cryptocurrencies. The group is backed by veteran commercial litigator Simon Morris, risk management expert Andrea Beatty and Michael Bacina in Sydney, and investment scheme specialist James Dickson in Adelaide.
