Financial Services

This industry covers all the services regulated by the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 including banking, consumer credit, electronic funds transfer, fund management, insurance, investment, mortgages, pensions and stock broking. It also includes angel, private equity and venture capital funding.

Businesses in this sector often seek our advice on:

  • protecting and exploiting their investment in marketing and technology
  • contracts for the supply of computer and telecommunications systems and services
  • subsistence and validity of their customers’ patents and other intellectual property rights for the purpose of collateral and insurance, and
  • EU and UK competition law.

We also draft and review software and other intellectual property licences and represent financial services clients before courts, hearing officers, arbitrators and mediators.
