MarketWatch | March.09.2018

Orrick’s Jacqui Hatfield authored an opinion piece for MarketWatch explaining what U.S. regulators could learn from the UK on innovation, especially in regards to fintech. Jacqui noted that the UK’s friendlier regulatory structure means that early stage startups in fintech have an easier time getting off the ground in the UK than in the U.S. Because of this, she said, “companies will likely continue to take advantage of Britain’s unique position bridging the tech and finance worlds of continental Europe and the U.S.”
