Key contact

Nicola McNeely

Working with entrepreneurial and innovative people in Wales and across the UK, especially in advanced manufacturing and technology businesses, is a pleasure, and I focus on working closely with clients to solve their problems and really understand how their businesses work. That understanding enables me to give succinct and pragmatic advice.

Strategic advice

Keeping your commercial objectives front of mind, our lawyers work with clients to provide the specialist advice needed by fintech businesses.

Solid contracts and agreements are the building blocks for a successful business. We advise on all manner of contracts from supply and purchase to data, IT and software agreements, making sure terms are fair and responsibilities are understood. Offering legal and regulatory expertise, we support fintech businesses across a range of areas including payments and e-money, IT and IP support, finance and taxation.

The sheer volume of data processed by businesses can be challenging and not without risk. Our data experts regularly put in place policies and procedures to help businesses to safeguard data in tandem with our cyber specialists advising on cyber security and data hosting.

If a dispute should occur, our litigation specialists are on hand to act quickly, assessing the situation, making sure you abide by any regulatory requirements and resolving the matter swiftly.

Cutting edge support

Funding for fintech businesses naturally includes traditional routes and investments but some organisations may opt for more alternative blockchain initial coin offerings (ICOs) such as security token offerings. Our wider team includes emerging technology experts who provide insights and guidance on areas such as non-fungible tokens (NFTs), blockchain, AI, utility tokens, smart contracts, web3 and robotics.

Our reputation in this fintech space attracts significant players in the market to us for advice. We advise a range of fintech businesses including crypto asset protection business, Coincover, leading payment services provider, AllPay, sa.global, a global Microsoft 365 partner and Finalrentals, a leading global online car hire business.
