High Tech / FinTech

Fintech and regtech companies address financial and regulatory challenges by providing innovative technological solutions for a variety of financial needs.

High entry barriers in the financial sector, the dominance of the banking system, and a complex regulatory framework pose many challenges. This requires the ongoing professional legal counsel of a leading law firm like Barnea. We possess extensive expertise in contending with the regulatory hurdles unique to the fintech sector. 

 

Our legal services extend throughout all stages of a fintech venture—defining the product, product development, and launch. We counsel on regulatory issues, licensing issues, online trading and payments, intellectual property, and information security, as well as provide representation before the various regulatory authorities.

 

Among our clients are P2P companies, crowdfunding platforms, and platforms offering crypto exchange services. We also represent money transfer services companies, social trading platforms, payment service providers, loan providers, insurance companies, software companies for personal financial management, and more.  

 

The team is headed by Dr. Zvi Gabbay. Zvi is a well-known figure in the world of fintech. He advises world-leading fintech companies, with a focus on the use of blockchain technology, financial services, the proper implementation of regulation on technology, and other relevant technologies in the AI field that support investment decisions.
