One of the first multinational law firms to appreciate the significance of the continuing innovations and advancements in financial technology and digital assets, as well as the attendant opportunities and challenges, Jones Day has assembled a global Fintech team of more than 175 experienced lawyers representing at least 17 practices and 32 jurisdictions.
Whether a matter involves accessing capital, negotiating a complicated transaction, determining how regulations impact business operations, or navigating a high-stakes dispute, Jones Day lawyers combine extensive knowledge of the issues facing banks and non-bank financial services companies with a thorough understanding of the emerging and relevant technologies, assuring clients access to leading-edge advice and counsel.
Jones Day lawyers have handled several first-of-their-kind Fintech matters relating to financial regulation and compliance (banking, securities, commodities, U.S. state laws, tax, anti-money laundering), intellectual property rights, antitrust, capital markets and finance (venture capital, private equity, lending and leveraged finance, pre-IPO financing), corporate transactions (M&A), and litigation and disputes.
Recognized thought leaders in the Fintech space, Jones Day partners and associates regularly speak at industry events, produce timely publications, and distribute videos, podcasts, and other content focusing on recent trends and developments of interest to clients. Twenty Jones Day lawyers from multiple practices and offices combined to write and edit Blockchain for Business Lawyers, a 2018 book commissioned by the ABA’s Science & Technology Law Section. The inaugural "FinAccelerate," a live business accelerator event empowered by Jones Day and held in San Francisco and Silicon Valley during October 2022, attracted fintech companies, industry leaders, investors, financial institutions, and similar interested parties from around the world.
