What the team is known for DLA Piper's North West FinTech team is widely recognised as highly capable in matters regarding financial services, technology and payments regulation. The firm operates out of its Liverpool and Manchester offices, providing clients with unmatched local FinTech expertise as well as the opportunity to leverage DLA's extensive array of international practitioners. The North West team has spent much of the last twelve months acting for incumbent and challenger banks, disruptive payment companies and new market entrants with new credit offerings.

Strengths"I find them very easy to work with financially, with no surprises on fees and a general view that we get good value for money from them. Generally my experience with law firms is that the quality declines over time as the original core team move on and are replaced with lawyers who don’t know your business as well. This has not been my experience with DLA - there is a good degree of continuity combined with an exceptional ability to get new lawyers to the account up to speed quickly."

"This team provides top-quality, proactive and pragmatic legal advice."

Work highlights Advised Payvision on its standard terms for the provision of payment processing, including its handling of transaction and customer data.
