This course will introduce students to "FinTech" products, such as p2p payments, neo banks, platform lenders and crypto currencies, and provide them with a framework that can be applied to determine the application of existing regulations to new financial products. Students will review current trends in FinTech and, using case studies, determine the application of existing federal and state securities and banking laws to emerging FinTech products. The course will examine the adequacy of existing financial regulation to protect consumers using FinTech products and the responses of the regulators to FinTech. Particular focus will be placed on the role of the lawyer in assisting clients in developing new financial products.

This class will meet for 6 classes over two weeks on Thursdays and Fridays, October 13 & 14 and October 20 & 21.

Paul Clark was a partner in the Washington, DC, office of Seward & Kissel for over 30 years before founding Grand View Financial Consulting. He has extensive experience working with both traditional financial services companies and non-traditional FinTech companies on new products.
