We’re proud to announce that two of our lawyers have contributed the chapter on Gibraltar Law to the International Comparative Legal Guide to: Fintech 2020.

This is an important publication for anyone in the legal community working in the fintech sector, which continues to grow at speed around the world. Gibraltar as a jurisdiction has been a leader in this sector since its Government announced a regulatory regime in 2017 for firms using distributed ledger technology (DLT).

Gibraltar has witnessed rapid growth in FinTech since it introduced the DLT regime, and has cemented its position as a leading blockchain jurisdiction. A significant number of companies have established vehicles in Gibraltar for initial coin offerings (ICOs) and applied for Gibraltar licences to operate as cryptocurrency exchanges or crypto wallet providers.

Triay has been at the forefront at the growth and has become one of the most respected FinTech team has become one of the Rock’s most respected teams: Javi Triay was voted into the executive role of Secretary at the Gibraltar Association for New Technologies (GANT) earlier this year and has been instrumental in developing the firm’s Fintech practice.

Jay Gomez has been elected on numerous occasions by Gibraltar’s legal community to represent them on the executive body of the Gibraltar Funds and Investment Association and has played an integral role in a number of changes to Gibraltar’s financial services laws. Jay and Javi have launched numerous Gibraltar crypto funds.
