We advise numerous companies that develop and offer technology-based financial services of the future (FinTech-s).
Our legal advice covers the structuring, setup and realization of new business-models in all product and distribution channels as well as white-label- and cross-border models. This applies in particular to payment solutions, issuing and distribution of crypto-assets, token sales and blockchain-based business-models. Additionally, we support companies in the application for licensing and registration pursuant to the German Banking Act (Kreditwesengesetz), Investment Firm Act (Wertpapierinstitutsgesetz), the Payment Services Supervision Act (Zahlungsdiensteaufsichtsgesetz) and the Capital Investment Code (Kapitalanlagegesetzbuch) and relevant provisions of the European Crowdfunding Service Provider Regulation (ECSP) or Markets in Crypto-assets Regulation (MiCAR).
We also advise banks, insurance companies and industrial companies regarding the cooperation with FinTech-s. Due to our in-depth expertise in both spheres we regularly advise investors (VC, PE and strategic investors) on regulatory aspects of investments in FinTech companies. We are experienced and pragmatic advisors for regulatory due diligence.
