BPE Solicitors contributes to The Financial Technology Law Review 2021

Sarah Kenshall, Partner and head of fintech at BPE Solicitors, has written the UK chapter for the Financial Technology Law Review 2021. The FTLR provides an in-depth global overview of this fast evolving sector, covering the most salient points of law and practice in each jurisdiction including key regulatory requirements, new business models and digital markets, intellectual property, data protection, AI and much more.

UK Fintech continues to broaden and diversify into new markets at home and abroad. Fintech firms are selling not just into financial services sectors, but beyond, for example, into energy, transport and telecoms.  The government-endorsed Kalifa Review of UK Fintech noted: ‘We see fintech as a core asset for Global Britain’, and a key recommendation of the Kalifa Review is for fintech to be an integral part of the UK’s international trade policy.

Cheltenham based BPE Solicitors supports and advises clients in this space on the protection and commercialisation of their products and services in an everchanging world of data and technology. It’s lawyers have specialist sector knowledge built up over years of acting for fintech clients, both public bodies and private equity backed companies.
