Burness Paull named FinTech leader in Scotland
Burness Paull has been awarded a band one ranking in the first ever fintech guide for Scotland issued by the Chambers and Partners legal directory.
Industry figures interviewed by Chambers cited the fact there was “no other firm with such a high-profile and in-depth connectivity to the Scottish FinTech community” and that Burness Paull has “a leadership role in the market and must be the most impressive firm operating in Scotland when it comes to working with the smallest FinTechs”.
Callum Sinclair co-heads the firm’s FinTech group and is head of the technology and commercial practice, now the largest dedicated team in Scotland.
Commenting on the accolade, he said: “FinTech is an area of real expertise and tremendous potential for growth in Scotland and we have been involved in supporting its development right from the start.
“The firm is passionate about helping clients develop their businesses to enable them to work on an international scale, and it’s an exciting area which is evolving very quickly.
“We are grateful to clients for trusting us to handle their FinTech projects and it’s a nice bonus to be recognised for the effort we have put in to supporting the wider sector, which we are absolutely committed to continuing.”
