Investing in FinTech Companies

A global team of Latham lawyers will host a breakfast seminar focusing on key issues associated with investing in or partnering with FinTech companies.


Investors in Fintech companies (e.g., financial investors (VC and PE), banks and insurers) typically have very different risk appetites and compliance expectations than emerging Fintech companies. Their contrasting cultures can have important effects on the legal, regulatory, and compliance aspects of investments in, and partnerships/collaborations with, FinTech companies.

Please join our global team of Latham lawyers for a breakfast seminar focusing on some of the key issues associated with investing in or partnering with FinTech companies.


  • What are the most important issues investors need to know?
  • How can investors navigate the complex regulatory landscape?
  • Who owns the IP and what are the key protections investors need to consider?
  • How can investors avoid a data privacy headache?
  • Termination rights: how to exit if the investment is not performing?
  • What are the competition law concerns and how can these be avoided?
  • Minority investors: how to ensure you are adequately protected?
