Digital Payments

Keeping you ahead of the curve in the fast moving digital payments market.

With a global payments market that is currently worth $13.trillion, digital payments represent one of the single largest areas of disruption facing the banking industry. Contactless payments have reimagined the way we transact, with digital consumers and retailers embracing new technologies such as Paywave, Paypass and mobile wallets. With recent innovations in authentication and payment security, could this signal the move towards a cashless society or is Bitcoin the currency of the future?

Our work with a wide variety of players in this market including, telecommunications and technology companies, credit reporting agencies, loyalty and other marketing scheme managers, financial institutions and regulators, has given us a deep insight and understanding of an industry undergoing rapid change and disruption.

Our legal expertise extends across the payments industry from developing market rules, negotiating technology service agreements, advising on privacy and security to branding as well as understanding how to navigate complex regulatory frameworks. Our team enjoys the challenge of unlocking novel solutions to help our clients bring new technologies to innovate and shape the market.  Indeed, in 2015 our firm was recognised by the Financial Times for our innovative role in the development of new payments infrastructure.
