Hassans ranked Tier 1 in Chambers’ FinTech: Professional Advisers Guide

Chambers and Partners has today launched their FinTech: Professional Advisers 2019 guide in which the two co-leads of Hassans’ 18-strong FinTech team, Anthony Provasolihe is one of the best attorneys in Europe for crypto-related business. He has huge expertise in FinTech, is a great negotiator, and is well-connected in many jurisdictions.” and Vikram Nagranihe is extremely knowledgeable, detail-orientated, and one of the highest quality professionals I’ve worked with. His service is outstanding.” have been listed as leaders in the field. The firm is ranked in Tier 1 overall for its FinTech expertise and reputation.

Client comments also include:

“Their expertise is incredible. They approach the business with an intimacy, focus and involvement that is different to other firms. They’ve gone above and beyond to make me feel like a partner, not a client.

 We received an outstanding, top-notch service, delivered by a team of professionals with profound knowledge not only in FinTech, but also in legal and regulatory matters. They also have an excellent network of contacts.

Chambers own commentary regarding the FinTech team states:

“Hassans fields an excellent team that commands a stellar reputation within the Gibraltarian market. The group possesses significant expertise in the legal issues related to cryptocurrencies and the implementation of blockchains in the finance sector. They are particularly well-versed in ICOs and in financial regulatory matters, acting for a number of leading entrepreneurs and FinTech companies.”

The guide this year covers 22 jurisdictions including the inaugural Gibraltar section. Last year the guide covered just 7 jurisdictions, demonstrating how exceedingly fast-moving the sector is.

Chambers and Partners’ research is often referred to as ‘the gold-standard’ with 200 research analysts delivering definitive client insights on the global legal profession. Hassans has been listed by the holistic Chambers Global and Chambers Europe guides as leading in Gibraltar every year for the last 15 years.

Commenting on the guide, Chambers and Partners, said:

“FinTech 2019 features the professional advisers with their fingers on the pulse and the ability to guide fintechs through any challenge and obstacle they might face. We consider the types of professional service featured – legal, venture capital, consulting and public relations – to be central to the growth of a great many companies in the sector. Innovation is at the core of FinTech and we have used that as a major guiding principle in making our assessments of the leading players in each country.” 

Vikram Nagrani commented:

“This accolade comes quickly after a double whammy of FinTech related announcements; at the end of last month we announced that our client Covesting had become one of the first recipients of Gibraltar’s much-coveted DLT Licences and just a few days ago, Partner and crypto funds specialist @Aaron Payas led a large team to launch the RockCyph3r Fund, the jurisdiction’s first approved regulated Experienced Investor Fund (EIF) set up with a complete multistrategy focus on cryptocurrencies. We are delighted to have received this worthy recognition”.

Anthony Provasoli continues:

“FinTech may feel “new” to many but we have been investing time and resources into this sector since 2014. In the last two years, the pace has quickened beyond comparison and it’s extremely rewarding to see our clients, and our team at Hassans, reap what they’ve sown. There are very exciting times ahead”

Based on these results, Hassans was exclusively approached to provide the definitive guide to FinTech (Gibraltar section) and this can be viewed here.
