Technological innovations are transforming the global financial sector, with disruptive developments like AI, Big Data analytics, DLT, and mobile communication presenting new products and services, addressing market gaps, and opening up entirely new markets in the banking, payments, insurance, and trading industries.

These exciting opportunities each introduce their own unique challenges, as well as specific legal, commercial, corporate, and regulatory needs. Shibolet’s Fintech Practice holds the necessary expertise and experience in all these aspects required to counsel and advise clients throughout this rapidly-emerging sector, including Fintech startups, financial institutions, insurance companies, clearing service providers, accelerators, and blockchain companies.

Our dedicated practice team is actively involved at all levels of the market, working closely with B2C and B2B-oriented entities from a variety of fields, such as mobile banking, open banking, P2P platforms, digital currencies, Regtech, Insuretech, trade and more. We have also established a wide international network of strong relationships with key industry players, and our attorneys are involved in discussions on legislative processes destined to change the regulatory landscape.

‘Shibolet’s team is one of the leading teams in Israel, due both to its understanding of the law and its understanding of clients’ business needs. The combination of outstanding capabilities in all three practice areas relevant to our business – hi-tech, financial regulatory and litigation – in our opinion is rare in the Israeli legal market and drove us to prefer them over any other firm.’
