Our Payment Services team has experience advising across the industry, from start-up FinTechs first to some of the largest leading institutions. Team members are also leading experts in the sector, having made significant contributions to Lexis Nexis on the regulation of payment services.


It can be difficult to obtain reliable legal fee quotes that offer certainty upfront. It can also be hard to find lawyers who fully understand the nature of the client’s business and offer a high quality of service that is also prompt. Often lawyers over-complicate the legal and regulatory framework, without focussing on what is important.

Our team is well versed in payment services, which means that we are able to provide pragmatic advice on a fixed fee basis. At gunnercooke we prefer using fixed fees because it avoids surprises, and it means we can focus on providing high-quality advice. We offer a holistic approach for clients, which seeks to help them grow. We provide pragmatic, focussed advice designed to provide concrete solutions for the businesses we work with.

Our work in Payment Services includes:

We provide a full-service solution, and highlights of work undertaken by team members include:

  • Advising on regulatory perimeter questions.
  • Drafting key documentation, including terms and conditions.
  • Advising crypto, blockchain and DeFi firms implementing payments capability.
