Our lawyers are involved in every significant development in market structure, whether it relates to the formation of a new exchange or trading platform or the development of an innovative new product. We have been involved from the earliest days of significant market developments, such as the use of debit cards, cash management accounts, online banking and trading, exchange-traded commodity pools and financial derivatives. Today, we are fintech leaders as new developments cut across every aspect of the markets for banking, lending, securities, commodities, derivatives, insurance and payments.
Financial markets are interconnected with the internet, mobile technologies, and related advances in data analytics, artificial intelligence and cryptography, as well as blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies. We know how to work with institutions, entrepreneurs and regulators to develop novel solutions to the regulatory issues that can arise with innovations in financial markets. We advise on mobile and person-to-person payment platforms, registered and exempt blockchain token offerings, marketplace lending, robo-advisers, virtual currency-related activities, derivatives and exchanges, and applications of blockchain and other distributed ledger technology.
