The first Chambers and Partners FinTech guide was published in 2017, recognising the necessity of a new, separate guide to rank the increasingly specialist FinTech subject matter. But the way in which the guide’s researchers and editors finalise rankings differs from the broader jurisdictional guides.
FinTech is a rapidly changing field. From the growth of ‘challenger’ digital banks to cryptocurrencies, we have already witnessed an astonishing number of changes. The agile marriage of financial and technological services will only continue to develop – and the legal industry must keep pace.
For any firm looking to rank in the Chambers and Partners FinTech guide, therefore, it is necessary to understand its particularities. Which is why, with the expertise of a former Chambers FinTech guide researcher and other former Chambers editors, Kidd Aitken has put together How to write a submission for the Chambers and Partners FinTech Guide. Our latest eGuide helping law firms optimise their submissions for the Chambers FinTech guide and secure a first-time or improved ranking.
We delve into the FinTech guide’s categories – including Blockchain and Cryptocurrency, Corporate, Securities and Financing and more – and help you to consider where your practice sits among these groups. Before starting the submissions process, it is crucial to understand if the FinTech guide is right for your firm: the process is time- and resource-consuming, and if your firm does not, among other things, have a good foundation in technology or financial services, this specialist guide may not be as relevant as a broader equivalent.
Our team of experts dive into the granular elements of what makes for a successful Chambers FinTech legal directory submission. Aptly positioning your firm and Partners is essential: the key is highlighting your niche offering to FinTech firms. From immersive associate secondments to digitalisation strategies, we help you identify and highlight niche boons and notable aspects of your FinTech practice, which will make you stand out from the crowd.
We know what the FinTech field looks like now. But where will it grow over the course of 2022, 2023, and even beyond? The 2021 Chambers and Partners FinTech Guide was the largest yet, ranking 995 firms and 393 individuals, and it will only continue to grow. Ensure that your firm and Partners stay abreast of its shifts and ahead of the game.
However FinTech develops in the coming years, we can be certain of one thing – it is going to be interesting.
