Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati

Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati's attorneys are highly sought after for their work developing novel, creative, and innovative fintech businesses and platforms. Our team represents a variety of cutting-edge companies in this regard—including crowdfunding platforms, peer-lending platforms and similar online lenders, alternative trading systems, robo-advisers, social investing platforms, payments companies (including money services businesses and money transmitters), businesses developing and using distributed ledger technology (DLT or blockchain), and virtual currency-related businesses. Our fintech team helps these companies structure and operate their businesses based on practical considerations, while remaining in full compliance with federal and state securities, commodities, payments, and lending laws.

Our attorneys who represent fintech clients have distinguished themselves in several key ways. They are thoroughly familiar with the latest developments in the fintech field, enabling them to respond quickly to industry shifts. Further, because they have long-standing relationships with regulators and an in-depth knowledge of regulatory requirements, they have insight into how fintech business models will be viewed by the relevant agencies. In fact, several members of our team were formerly with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). Perhaps most importantly, our attorneys are well known for offering creative solutions and obtaining impressive results on behalf of their fintech clients.

In addition to advising on regulatory matters, our team provides valuable counsel on structuring issues. For example, in the course of representing fintech clients, our attorneys organize the relevant entities; prepare disclosure and subscription/customer agreements; help draft website disclosures, FAQs, and terms of use; develop privacy policies, e-sign agreements, and site user agreements; and assist with other practical and operational areas.
