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

Using applications, advanced analytics, and online financial solutions, these companies are able to provide international money transfers, payment services, loans, insurance, software for personal financial management, and more.

The fintech sector is one of the most promising and growing fields in the world of entrepreneurs, since the traditional character of the financial sector leaves plenty of room for innovative solutions.

 

However, 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 counsel of a law firm like Barnea, which has extensive expertise in contending with the regulatory hurdles unique to the fintech sector. 

Among our clients are P2P companies, crowdfunding platforms, money transfer services companies, social trading platforms, and more. 

 

Our legal advisory services extend throughout all stages of a 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.

 

Our firm was ranked in the prestigious Chambers Ranking Guide for 2019 as a leading firm in the Tier 1 band of the Fintech field. In addition, Dr. Zvi Gabbay, Head of the Capital Markets Department, was ranked as a leading lawyer in this field.
