Meet The Team

In the drive to digitise, automate and improve financial processes and security, the FinTech sector has exploded in recent years. FinTechs sit at the vanguard of technological advance, in a heavily regulated industry. It is no surprise that the legal issues these companies face can be numerous, widespread and complex.

At Acuity, our experts have lived and breathed these cutting-edge issues at the sharp end, advising public and private sector bodies, service providers and recipients.

With a strong track record in banking and finance, insurance, private equity and fundraising, intellectual property protection, regulation and governance, coupled with experience in technology and data collection, use and monetisation, our experts can provide full-service assistance across the FinTech sector.

Not only can we advise across the spectrum of legal issues, but we offer clients tailored guidance on how to set up and grow their businesses and attract funds, while ensuring founder protection and avoiding over-dilution of equity.

Acuity also works closely with FinTech boutique firm Karm, recognised as one of GCC’s top emerging tech law firms with offices in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
