Advancements in technology over the past decade have spurred a sea change in the way financial services are delivered and regulated. Pillsbury has been at the center of that evolution, advising businesses at the intersection of finance and technology on the unique challenges they face.
Pillsbury has an extensive track record advising first-movers in the fintech space and guiding clients through first-of-a-kind issues, often having advised these clients from their inception. We counseled some of the very first bitcoin companies on how financial regulations apply to them and we have played a critical role in the development of the Delaware Blockchain Initiative—an unprecedented effort to expand business usage of distributed ledger and smart contract technologies. Our experience also includes advising the first blockchain-based corporate rewards marketplace, several of the very first bitcoin companies, one of the world’s first blockchain games and decentralized applications (dapp), and one of the first open banking platforms.
As longtime advisors to large and well-established institutions in the financial services and technology industries, our teams leverage invaluable experience as they advise on the proliferation of fintech solutions across industries, including energy, government contracts and defense, crypto-wealth management, human resources, retail, real estate and security.
Our Fintech, Payments & Blockchain focus team operates across disciplines, with lawyers regularly advising on consumer financial services concerns, corporate formation, venture and private equity financing, mergers and acquisitions, public offerings, regulatory issues, intellectual property protection, privacy and data security, employment and severance matters, and litigation. In addition, regulators from both the federal and state levels frequently call upon the firm to represent the industry and provide legal analysis and industry intelligence. The team has helped set industry standards for regulatory compliance and corporate governance and has developed high-level strategies specific to banking, payments, consumer financial services, money transmission, securities, and video gaming.
