Our strong cross-practice FinTech team leverages on its deep roots in technology and financial services regulatory law, as well as intellectual property in order to provide comprehensive, integrated and credible FinTech legal services to a wide array of incumbents, traditional players, disruptors, collaborators and fledgling start-ups.
We have strategically positioned ourselves at the centre of the dynamic and growing Norwegian FinTech sector. We regularly network, host events, author articles, and have established a strong client base through our market-leading technology practice. Coupled with our strength in financial services regulatory law, telecommunications law, IP law and data protection law, our cross-practice FinTech services are a particular draw for payments and digital currency clients.
Our services cover legal advice on both national and EU/EEA legislation applicable to all aspects of the FinTech industry. This includes regulatory advice relating to payment services (PSD2), card schemes, tokenization, GDPR, crowdfunding/crowdlending, technological infrastructure (amongst others biometrical payment cards which will be a disruptive technology), issuance of digital currency/ICOs, operational systems, consumer protection, data privacy, cyber risk, intellectual property and cryptocurrency mining.
