Whoop whoop! FG Lawyers and our FinTech & Regulatory partner Anne Hakvoort are again ranked in Chambers FinTech rankings 2022. Chambers and Partners annually publishes the world-famous and renowned lawyer rankings. These rankings are based on independent research and take into account feedback from our clients, our peers and other parties active in the FinTech ecosystem.
A BIG thank you to those of you who have made their precious time available to Chambers’ research team! Also many thanks to our clients, who challenge us with their innovative ideas on a daily basis and who continuously make us want to dive into the – sometimes difficult to fathom – forest of financial regulatory laws.
Chambers comments as follows: “What the team is known for: Boutique firm FG Lawyers has expertise in the fields of corporate structuring, governance and financial regulatory law. The firm is recognised by peers and clients for being particularly helpful to FinTech startups and scale-ups, in part because of the structure of the firm’s partner-led approach. FG Lawyers has recently assisted clients in obtaining the appropriate regulatory approvals for licences.
Strengths: The firm has a lot of expertise on crowdfunding and maintains a keen client base.”
Our partner Anne Hakvoort is recommended in ‘band 2’ in the Chambers FinTech rankings 2021. Chambers clarifies: “Anne Hakvoort is very active in Amsterdam’s FinTech community, publishing and lecturing on the topic, and is highly recognised by legal peers. Hakvoort focuses on blockchain-driven business models, as well as crowdlending and crowd investment platforms. Anne is one of the best in the industry. She doesn’t over-complicate issues, which is often a downside of regulatory law work, and she makes complex issues digestible.” According to Chambers, a fellow market insider adds: “Anne is a reference point in the Netherlands on crowdfunding.”
