The term “fintech” is a portmanteau of the words “finance” and “technology” and refers to a range of innovative financial services combining financial services with information technology. New services and business areas are being developed every day using information technology in a wide range of industries, including banking, securities, insurance and other financial sectors, online services, e-commerce, cloud services, asset management and crypto assets.

As various fintech businesses evolve, corresponding regulations and operations, such as industry laws and guidelines, are also being developed and it is necessary to keep abreast of the latest applicable regulations and respond appropriately when providing services in the fintech sector. However, answers to legal problems in such new services are often not immediately available from existing legal systems and interpretations and thus not only expert knowledge of existing laws and regulations but also the ability to respond flexibly to new legal issues using a broad range of expertise is required.

Our firm provides advice on a daily basis for the development of fund settlement services, crypto assets, online businesses involving the issuance of tokens and points, crowdfunding and various other fintech businesses provided by a wide range of companies, including fintech companies, start-ups, IT companies and financial institutions,  and provides legal services in various aspects such as the structuring of new businesses, acquisition of permits and licenses, dealing with authorities, investing in fintech businesses and business alliances with collaboration by lawyers from all related areas.
