Firm Overview:
FG Lawyers is a Dutch boutique firm offering the combined specialised knowledge and expertise in the fields of M&A, corporate structuring, governance and financial regulatory law.

Common feedback from the firm's clients is that they very much appreciate the proactive and pragmatic approach, on the ball mentality and the in-depth high quality services of the firm's lawyers and the capacity of thinking along with the client both from a legal perspective as well as strategically.

In particular Digital finance and FinTech start-ups and scale ups highly value the firm's ability to structure their innovative ideas into legally compliant business models. Although this remains to be a continuous challenge, as the existing legal and regulatory framework simply does not match the Digital finance, FinTech and platform driven business models, the firm successfully assists its clients in obtaining the appropriate regulatory approvals, licenses or other forms of permissions from the Dutch financial regulators.  

FG Lawyers is ranked in band 4 of the Chambers & Partners Fintech Rankings 2022.

Main Areas of Practice:  

Digital Finance and FinTech and Financial Regulatory Practice:
FinTech and other innovative business models explore the challenging edges of financial regulation which requires a creative perspective and willingness to go that extra mile. Regulators and supervisors are stimulating innovation by setting up regulatory sandboxes and developing specific rules applicable to specific types of FinTechs with the aim to minimise the legal barriers and to facilitate FinTechs in flourishing. At the same time, they struggle in finding a perfect balance between safeguarding an appropriate level of investor protection and enabling FinTechs to test the market without being confronted with too heavy administrative, financial and legal burdens.

This is where FG Lawyers comes in. The firm actively contributes to the creation of a proportionate regulatory framework for Digital Finance and FinTech companies by responding to national and EU legislative consultations in this field, seeking the dialogue with the regulators and challenging other stakeholders.

FG Lawyers offers in-depth knowledge about financial regulatory matters relating to the Dutch market. Luckily, operating in niche segments does not limit the law practitioner but makes one sharper. The firm assists its clients, small or large, start-up or incumbent, in advising on financial regulatory matters and in obtaining the regulatory permissions, registrations or other authorisations for their businesses from the relevant Dutch regulatory authorities (the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets or the Dutch Central Bank.
