Our FinTech practice harnesses the strengths of our recognised leading lawyers in financial regulatory, technology and intellectual property to present novel legal solutions in an area which challenges traditional legal and regulatory boundaries. Our team is active in all areas of the FinTech ecosystem and has been involved in advising on financial “disruptions” since before the commencement of Singapore’s Securities and Futures Act in 2002.
At Allen & Gledhill, we take pride in being on the cutting edge of new technologies and financial product offerings. With over 110 years of legal experience and frequent engagement with regulators and other Government authorities, we distil the policy concerns underpinning legislation and combine them with an appreciation for the commercial concerns of our clients. In developing practical solutions, we strive to not only meet the needs of our clients but to do so in a manner that addresses policy concerns. Our team is at the forefront of proposed regulatory changes, and we often work with industry on the provision of incisive feedback on new legislation in public consultations. Examples of such feedback include those for new legislation to regulate equity crowdfunding platforms, P2P platforms and online payment systems.
Our clients range from venture capitalists, traditional fund managers, global banks, mature and emerging FinTech companies, and start-ups, to technology service providers. We are often in dialogue with regulators and FinTech facilitators such as incubators and infrastructure providers and believe that this enables us to have a holistic view of the workings of the FinTech ecosystem, with greater clarity on its development.
