From compliance to employment agreements, trade secret protection, and data privacy, we will help your business stay agile, smart, and secure.

Financial Compliance Attorney

Compliance

One of the first objectives to any new technology or adaptation is compliance with state and federal rules and regulations. Our group is known for our creative and entrepreneurial approach to compliance. Through rigorous, proactive business operations guidance, we help fintech clients simultaneously meet their legal obligations and boost their bottom lines.

Employment Law

Amid all the steps involved in starting a technology company, it is easy to lose sight of the intricacies and implications in regards to employment agreements. These agreements, if absent or drafted improperly, can lead to the exposure of confidential information and threaten an organization's long-term value and viability. ogether with Offit Kurman’s Employee Mobility and Trade Secret Protection Team, our Fintech attorneys will help you draft contracts that protect your proprietary secrets and prevent unfair competition, raiding by a competitor, or—worse—sabotage from within.

IP Protection

Your trademarks, copyrights, and patents should be sources of value—not potential liabilities. We will advise you on how to protect your inventions, processes, systems, branding, and other intellectual property. Our proactive guidance will ensure you stay ahead of the costly and distracting legal and business issues that can arise when things are done without the proper insight and advice.

Privacy

Privacy laws are undergoing constant change at both the federal and state levels, and no fintech company can afford to fall behind. Offit Kurman’s attorneys help clients understand and navigate regulations related to the permissible acquisition, sharing, use, and destruction of private information. Clients also trust our team for up-to-date guidance on required rules, policies and procedures for securing data, protecting systems, and responding to data breaches.

Corporate Law

Many fintech companies are founded with an eventual exit strategy in mind. Other businesses' needs may change, requiring changes in ownership and investment. Whatever your future brings, you can rely on Offit Kurman’s experienced attorneys to represent you during any merger, acquisition, investment, or other corporate transaction.

How We Do It

Compliance Audits

We will not only assess your compliance but assist you in anticipating pushback from customers, as well as help you adapting business strategies to overcome those obstacles. Rather than simply giving you a “yes” or “no,” we will creatively work through challenges to facilitate your product or service and enhance its acceptance in the marketplace.
