FINTECH

Our firm boasts a reputation as one of the leading firms in the Peruvian legal market, as it entices a consistent stream of complex and sophisticated cross-practice FinTech matters. We stand out in the market for the diversity of our client portfolio and for the pioneering and innovative quality of our FinTech matters, which epitomize the evolution of banking and regulated and non-regulated finance in Peru. This is due to our market-leading ability to advise on financial services regulatory, complex transactions, payment systems, online lending, blockchain and cryptocurrency issues, as well as data privacy and cybersecurity, a process that requires a high level of legal expertise and an innovative attitude towards the often uncertain and tough regulatory terrain in Peru.

Our FinTech practice area initially emerged as a cross-departmental, cross-office team, primarily comprised of lawyers from the Banking & Finance and Capital Markets departments. As the Peruvian FinTech scene has evolved, so too have clients’ needs, and the team has reactively grown further to include members from the Tech, Data Privacy, Consumer Protection and Regulatory teams. Our Firm is now able to advise FinTech clients on increasing multifaceted and complex matters, which is ever-more reflected in the increasing sophistication of our mandates.
