Payments is one of the most rapidly evolving areas of financial services. We represent the entire value chain of the payments industry, including financial institutions, payment networks, payment processors, payment facilitators, money transmitters, prepaid program managers, merchants, corporate payors and payees, and others. We have counseled the payments industry for many years and have advised many of the companies responsible for the recent explosion of innovation in this area.
Emerging internet, mobile, B2B and social payment regimes, as well as the growing role of bitcoin and other digital currencies, have challenged existing paradigms from both a legal and commercial perspective. In this dynamic environment, we provide a unique blend of strategic regulatory advice and transactional counseling that combines our deep and broad background in the payments industry with our insight into cutting-edge legal developments in this area.
