Navigating a Constantly Changing Landscape

Blockchain for Business

Over the last three decades there have been complex legal challenges at the intersection of technology and financial services.

Our lawyers have outstanding knowledge and experience in technology and finance. They think strategically and focus on adding value from concept to delivery. Our firm invests in the right people and resources to be ready for the next phase of innovation, and fintech is no exception. The hype-cycles are getting shorter, and everyone in the ecosystem, including lawyers, must be more flexible and innovative to compete. The regulators and policymakers are part of this ecosystem, as each jurisdiction tries to maintain its competitiveness, facilitating a lean new digital economy of open-access financial services. At Mayer Brown, we bring together teams of legal technologists, financial services regulatory and enforcement lawyers, intellectual property lawyers, banking and finance professionals and other practitioners to meet the challenges presented by this new reality. Our dealmakers are key in orchestrating progressive and successful strategies that liberate fintech businesses to act quickly and prosper in evolving regulatory environments.

Market leaders are quickly and effectively accessing technology, capitalizing on the value of creativity within their own business and beyond and preparing for a period of transformation. Change and risk go hand-in-hand, but our experience means we can help manage the risk landscape, as cybersecurity, data handling and big data create new challenges to add to the old ones.
