McGuireWoods garnered two nationwide practice rankings in Chambers and Partners’ “2023 Fintech Guide,” reinforcing the firm’s longstanding reputation as a sought-after adviser to leading financial technology companies and financial institutions.
Chambers again ranked McGuireWoods in the Fintech Legal and Fintech Legal: Payments & Lending categories, recognizing the firm for deep industry knowledge and broad capabilities to help fintech companies thrive. Charlotte partner Susan Rodriguez, co-leader of the firm’s financial institutions industry team, also earned a nationwide ranking in the Fintech Legal Corporate, Securities & Financing category.
“The team at McGuireWoods is top notch, both personally and professionally,” a client told Chambers researchers. “They know what good client service is and will bend over backward to help with anything, big or small.”
Another client declared: “I have always been impressed that they are well-informed about emerging trends, and they always surprise me by quickly identifying potential legal issues (and potential solutions to those issues) that I failed to see.”
Charlotte partner Rakesh Gopalan, who co-leads the fintech group with Los Angeles-Century City partner Molly White, said that the recognition by Chambers reflects McGuireWoods’ commitment to being an industry leader.
“It is rewarding when respected independent authorities such as Chambers recognize the powerful advantages our experience and insight provide for fintech clients nationwide,” Gopalan said.
White added: “These rankings reflect what our clients already know – that we have a deep and talented team of lawyers working across practices to deliver comprehensive, business-focused solutions in a highly competitive market.”
McGuireWoods’ nationally recognized fintech practice has lawyers in offices across the country, including in the most active fintech hubs. With a keen understanding of a broad array of emerging technologies and deep experience serving the financial sector, the firm is well equipped to help clients handle shifting legal, commercial and technical challenges.
