Rebecca James

As a financial services regulatory lawyer, I help regulated companies achieve their goals while complying with regulation. I work with companies throughout their life-cycle, helping structure products and apply for authorisation with the regulator as well as assisting on exits and wind-downs.

Clients I've worked with: Wirex | NerdWallet | TerraPay | Plim

  • What inspires you about working with tech companies?

    Working with tech companies means you're always learning. Being able to simply sit and listen to founders explain their ideas and being able to help make them a reality is a privilege.

  • If you weren't a tech lawyer, what would you do?

    If I wasn't a lawyer, and had the time, patience and kitchen work space, I would love to be a baker. I will occasionally open the Great British Bake Off application before realising I do not have the time, or the talent to enter.

  • Tell us something we'd be surprised to know about you.

    While at university in Houston, I was a keen two-stepper and cheerleader.

  • Tell us about a favorite book, work of art or piece of music?

    Invisible Women by Caroline Criado-Perez is one of those books that you can't stop quoting from or telling people about. It discusses data-bias and how the gap in data is a root cause of inequality; and it will convince you that yes, snow-clearing can be sexist.

    I lead Orrick's UK financial services regulatory practice. With a focus on FinTech, I advise the full spectrum of financial services firms. My team covers the full lifecycle of regulated firms including licensing obligations, ongoing compliance, reg due diligence, changes of control and responses to regulatory investigations.

    • What inspires you about working with tech companies?

      I'm passionate about the ability of technology to improve the quality of people's lives in real and tangible ways. Technology can improve our experience in all manner of tasks, from the mundane and the most complex.

    • Where do you find inspiration in life?

      From observing individuals overcome challenge through dedication and often applied intellect. I'm often amazed how challenges that people have fought against for centuries disappear through the application of quite simple technological solutions.

    • If you weren't a tech lawyer, what would you do?

      Something boring! I enjoy working in financial services regulation. If there wasn’t a technology edge to my work I’d still work in financial services only it would be a bit more dull.

    • If you could choose one superpower, what would it be?

      Teleportation. Imagine being able to finish working in the office and seconds later appear at home or a restaurant with friends!
