Allen & Gledhill and Rahmat Lim & Partners are pleased to jointly announce the launch of our new FinTech practices for Singapore and Malaysia respectively. Our FinTech practices work closely together and harness the strengths of our recognised leading lawyers in financial regulatory, technology and intellectual property to present novel legal solutions in an area which challenges traditional legal and regulatory boundaries.
FinTech often presents a tension between an innovative business model and characteristics that are not readily applicable to current regulations. With many years of legal experience and frequent engagement with regulators and other Government authorities, we distil the policy concerns underpinning legislation and combine them with an appreciation for the commercial concerns of our clients. In developing practical solutions, we strive not to only meet the needs of our clients but to do so in a manner that addresses policy concerns. Our teams are at the forefront of proposed regulatory changes, and we often work with industry on the provision of incisive feedback on new legislation, whether in public consultations or otherwise. Examples of cutting edge areas in which we have advised include equity crowdfunding platforms, P2P platforms and online payment systems.
Our teams are active in all areas of the FinTech ecosystem and our clients range from venture capitalists, traditional fund managers, global banks, mature and emerging Fintech companies, and start-ups, to technology service providers. We are often in dialogue with regulators and FinTech facilitators such as incubators and infrastructure providers and believe that this enables us to have a holistic view of the workings of the Fintech ecosystem, with greater clarity on its development.
We are excited at working with you to chart the future.
