Her practice covers drafting financial services legislation, advising financial services firms on regulatory matters, transactional work covering all types of financial instruments with special emphasis on derivatives, structured products and funds.
Sally’s FinTech journey began a few years ago starting with advising peer-to-peer, crowdfunding and financial inclusion platforms on authorisation and regulatory matters. Since then she has advised regulators on drafting their FinTech regulation and firms on the structuring and implementation of financial services products through blockchain technology. Sally advises her clients on the legal requirements for the validity and enforceability of blockchain products and on amendments required to be made to legislation and proposes drafting to be discussed with the relevant authorities.
