A rapid pace of technological innovation and flexibility in how payment can be taken presents both opportunities and risks.
Our technology and financial services experts work collaboratively with you to deliver clear, commercially focused advice, grounded in an understanding of technological development and the associated legal challenges.
Working with banks, payment intermediaries and retailers, as well as those developing new methods of providing payment solutions, we work hard to tailor every piece of advice given so that it can shape or be adapted to the technological solution. Our expertise spans the legal disciplines, including Payment Service Regulations (PSRs) and Electronic Money Regulations (EMRs) advice, on exemptions under the relevant regulations and the scope of obligations under the PSRs.
What matters most to us, however, is that you feel you’re getting an outstanding client experience and have the right team of legal experts standing by your side. It’s important that you trust us to understand not only your industry, but the ethos behind your organisation and your customers.
As one of the strongest, dedicated payment services teams in the legal sector, we pride ourselves on the adaptable, anticipatory nature of the advice we give. Clear direction and actionable suggestions contribute to achieving organisational goals that grow with the technology and your business.
