Linklaters LLP is a leading international law firm with 30 offices in 20 countries. More than 2,900 lawyers around the world always work as one united team, offering seamless service across practices and offices, with a common focus on innovation, efficiency and agility – putting our clients at the heart of all we do.
We have consistently held the position of market-leaders in advising on the application of new technologies to finance, from the implementation of SWIFT payments to the advent of blockchain and digital currencies, and everything in-between. Long before the term “fintech” was coined, we had been working on many of the most prominent and ground-breaking technological developments in financial markets for many years. Our strong relationships with regulators, banks, insurers, funds and infrastructure and service providers mean that we understand the issues that affect every area of the financial technology ecosystem. This enables us to deliver incisive, informed and innovative advice across the fintech spectrum. Our lawyers regularly speak at fintech and digital banking related events and conferences across the world and we partner with some of the world's leading fintech organisations.
As technology continues to rapidly transform businesses, markets and everyday life, our priority is to help clients at all stages of growth maximise opportunities - and navigate the threats - in this increasingly interconnected, dynamic and demanding world. To do this, requires top minds collaborating, agile thinking, a passion for technology and lawyers who are not merely legal experts, but who also know and comprehend the nuances of clients’ evolving business models. We can offer clients our unparalleled cross-border depth of legal and regulatory knowledge and experience across a broad spectrum of cross-sector technology trends, such as fintech, AI, blockchain, digital health, e-commerce and electric and autonomous vehicles, by drawing on our strength across different practice areas, sectors and jurisdictions. This ensures that all of our clients receive commercially innovative and technically strong advice.
