For the first time, Chambers & Partners ranked the best FinTech law firms in Belgium. Simont Braun’s Digital Finance Team is extremely proud to be the only law firm ranked in Band 1, and recognised as a leading law firm amongst its peers by this guide of reference on the global legal market.
“They’re a great firm and much closer to FinTechs than others. They’ve got more of a soul and act as a group who you can rely on, instead of looking at you as an opportunity to bill extra things to.”
Two members of the team are also ranked individually: Catherine Houssa in Band 1, and Philippe De Prez as Up and Coming.
About Catherine, one source said that “She is extremely proactive by nature and didn’t create mountains for us that didn’t exist.”. As for Philippe, comments say that he “tries to find a solution that works, with an international outlook.”
In 2014, Simont Braun created a multidisciplinary Digital Finance Team to anticipate and respond to the legal and regulatory challenges related to the arrival of new technologies and disruptive players such as FinTechs, InsurTechs or RegTechs in the traditional world of bank-insur-finance. The Digital Finance Team gathers lawyers in Banking & Finance, IP, IT and Data Protection, with a particular interest for technology. The team was the very first of its kind on the Belgian market and a trendsetter for other firms in Belgium.
Five years later, Simont Braun is the expert and go-to firm in Belgium regarding Digital Finance.
We would like to thank our peers and clients for their trust and feedback! Needless to say, our Digital Finance Team is even more motivated and looking forward to handling your next innovative project!
