Beccar Varela pioneered the creation of a Fintech Department among full-service law firms in Argentina. Our team provides tailored legal advice to all types of ventures, covering every aspect of this incipient industry undergoing exponential growth.
Our team members specialize in banking, finance, and corporate law, and work together with our experts from new technologies, compliance, intellectual property, data protection, consumer protection, tax and labor practices, generating unique synergy to serve our clients.
With our full-service strengths, we are prepared to assist both banking and non-banking players interested in the development of fintech operations, in any of their business verticals, including regulatory advice, structuring, investment, financing and public relations, as well as strategic daily corporate advice.
Some of our clients include major national and multinational banks as well as multilateral institutions, which enables us to help players in the fintech sector to engage with incumbent entities and build valuable partnerships. We also actively support start-ups and entrepreneurs. Argentina boasts a wealth of IT talent, fueling potential future fintech unicorns as well as BCorps and other impact investment initiatives aimed at contributing to community development and financial inclusion.
Our broad international expertise and relations enable us to assist global fintech platforms in the launch of their business in Argentina, as well as to advise local enterprises on expanding their activities abroad.
Our practice combines experience and innovation, allowing us to provide clients creative solutions in the context of a highly regulated market, and constant interaction with regulators facilitates rapidly identifying solutions with the authorities.
We prepare a regular bulletin focused on fintech news for our clients, in English and Spanish. Our team members actively participate in forums as speakers and write articles on industry matters.
Members of our fintech team have been recognized by the publications Chambers Latin America, Chambers Global, The Legal 500, Latin Lawyer 250, Leaders League, IFLR 1000, LACCA Approved, and LACCA Thought Leaders, among others. Many have studied or worked abroad, including in leading law firms.
