Fintech

Within: Fintech

Boasting impressive cross-border capabilities, Clifford Chance combines regulatory, transactional and litigation expertise and advises clients on a range of fintech matters, including marketplace lending, blockchain, smart contracts, initial coin offerings, artificial intelligence and insurtech. Its client roster spans from established technology sector players, such as TBG and Imagination Technologies Group plc, to R3 (a consortium of more than financial institutions), and emerging start-ups and scale-ups. In an example of the latter, Gary Boss is advising Slice Insurance Technologies on several corporate and regulatory matters, including on a joint venture with a large US insurance carrier and on the structuring of a similar joint venture in Japan. In another work highlight, David Felsenthal and Washington DC-based litigator Megan Gordon assisted AANDB TECH with privacy policy and terms and conditions relating to the set up of its FINCONECTA initiative, a platform aiming to integrate solutions between fintech companies and financial institutions. The group also has experience representing clients in the ICO market with investigations and enforcement matters. Robert Villani is another key name to note, particularly for capital market related instructions. Except where otherwise stated, all individuals mentioned are based in the firm's New York office.
