In a rapidly growing and fast moving sector, with both established players and new entrants, an understanding of all relevant IP issues is crucial.
Patent filing activity in Fintech has been growing appreciably, in what was previously perceived as a difficult area in which to obtain viable protection. Alongside this, the differing and changing practices of the major global economies towards software and business method patents has created a complex landscape. This landscape is well understood by our professionals.
Our clients range from market disruptors to established financial services and tech companies. We have particular expertise in advising on payment and transaction systems, databases, financial modelling and secure transaction processing. Other relevant IP issues within our expertise concern data protection and software licensing.
We work closely with our clients to understand their businesses and innovation so that the most applicable protection of their IP can first be obtained, and then subsequently utilised to best effect.
With all of our IP professionals located in the heart of London, the world’s leading financial tech centre, our finger is on the pulse of this rapidly developing sector.
