The technology landscape is changing and financial services companies have the opportunity to use it to their advantage. MoFo will be there with you every step of the way.

Disruptive technologies are changing the face of financial services and overturning assumptions about the way they are delivered. As technology evolves, the provision of financial services must evolve with it. It’s time to rethink traditional approaches to regulatory and legal issues.

We have long been recognized as a leading financial services and technology firm, working closely with clients on major legislative and regulatory issues affecting financial services and payment systems across the globe. Advising on both the commercial and regulatory issues, we understand the FinTech market and its players, ensuring that you receive the most current and relevant advice for your business.

  • Commercial Agreements
  • Licensing and Alliances
  • Mergers & Acquisitions
  • Initial Public Offerings
  • Financings

Our advice is informed by our extensive experience in financial services, technology, intellectual property, data protection, and cybersecurity, as well as our deep understanding of how industry-specific practices and regulations affect the implementation of technology solutions.
