Peer To Peer Funders


We act for a number of peer to peer lenders, peer to business lenders and crowd funders from the start up phase, to raising funds right through to securely making their first loan available, structuring loan products and beyond.

Our team of dedicated lawyers can offer advice on all aspects of their business such as:

Data protection
Financial services regulation and compliance
Loan documents and terms between lenders and borrowers
Platform IP issues and protection
Procurement and outsourcing (such as AML, client money, third party back-up servicer)
Recoveries, enforcement, turnaround and insolvency advice
Security documents
Terms and conditions between crowd funding platforms and their borrower and lender members

Our corporate commercial lawyers can also support us.

Our experience of the financial services sector means we have an in-depth understanding of the Fin Tech market place in which these funders and platforms operate and the challenges that they face with the increasing FCA regulatory landscape that surrounds them if they operate in the regulated space and we can guide them through that with training, advice and support.

Our banking team can advise on security and loan issues as well as all matters connected with capital raising, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and tax. Our commercial lawyers can advise on terms and conditions, policies and procedures and our financial disputes team can advise our clients on all aspects of recoveries and dispute resolution.
