Financial regulation and legal matters are a consistent part of the workload for fintech startups. From regulation issues to data handling and of course staff and partner contracts.

Lawyers are subject to mandatory rules designed, among others, to prevent conflicts of interest. These rules require a lawyer to check that there is no conflict of interest before advising a potential client. The real-time nature of Law Connect’s guidance means that it is not possible for the lawyers involved to check against conflicts of interest before answering the questions asked.
Therefore, while the guidance is targeted at providing answers to legal questions of a general nature where no counterparty is involved (such as “is this a regulated activity?”, “am I allowed to process personal data in this manner?” or “are these customers eligible for simplified customer due diligence?”), it is not suitable for e.g. contract reviews or other advice implicating the interests of other parties.
