Wealth & Finance International magazine has announced the winners of the 2021 FinTech Awards, which sees Burges Salmon named as the Best FinTech Law Firm in the UK.

The fintech sector is hugely diverse. At the nexus of financial, wealth management, banking, insurance, pension and e-commerce services and enabled by advances in data use, technology innovation and digital delivery, the sector is truly transformative.

The way in which businesses – large and small, old and new – solve problems and build financial products for customers are changing. Also changing are the ways in which customers engage with and use financial products and services. Alongside this, the evolution of financial regulatory systems and data compliance standards globally continues apace.

In this context it is no surprise that the sector is expanding hugely, including in terms of customer adoption in the ‘flight to digital’ and by investment into the sector.

This award recognises the role of Burges Salmon’s fintech team in innovating in the market and supporting clients achieve their commercial goals, as well as its experience working with domestic clients and with international businesses looking to enter the UK or develop their UK proposition.

Now in its fifth year, Wealth & Finance International’s FinTech Awards were launched to recognise the firms that are redefining finance and banking for the modern age, and for the ever-changing modern consumer. 

Burges Salmon’s Head of Fintech, Martin Cook, says: “We are proud to be named the Best FinTech Law Firm – UK at the FinTech Awards 2021.  This fantastic recognition is testament to the hard work of our fintech team who provide our clients with exceptional service day-in-day-out on the full range of support demanded by fintechs and by established financial institutions on their technology and digital transformation journey.”
