Fintech

We regularly advise financial technology (fintech) companies as they define and rebuild their business models in an era of unprecedented economic, technological, and regulatory change.

The sophistication of our counsel in corporate matters, transactions, regulation, enforcement, and dispute resolution is rooted in Morgan Lewis’s long history of service to financial institutions and technology companies. Our team is anchored by lawyers with domain experience in the private sector, at financial services regulatory agencies, and as primary outside counsel.
