If you would like to find out more about any of our practice areas or barristers please get in touch here. Our experienced practice management team will be pleased to provide you with more details and answer any questions you may have.
Outer Temple is one of the leading chambers in Fintech, particularly the law relating to blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies, cryptoassets, smart contracts and open banking. We have expertise in cryptoasset recovery, FCA regulation of cryptoassets and the developing law relating to cryptoassets and smart contracts in English courts. Our barristers have developed specialisms in these areas over a number of years in the anticipation that these assets and contracts would play an important role in modern commercial transactions and legal systems.
Our barristers are involved not only in the practice of this area of law advising and representing clients, legislators and regulators (both nationally and internationally) but also in law reform and academic discussions. Our barristers have lectured widely on cryptoassets and smart contracts, produced podcasts and have contributed to Law Commission consultations on behalf of COMBAR and ChBa.
Outer Temple recognises the importance of collaboration with other specialists and asset tracers to ensure clients can receive a full service when they receive legal advice and representation from our barristers. We have an established partnership with the Oxford University Deep Tech Dispute Resolution Lab and have collaborated on numerous projects together. Professional Associate, Mark Beer OBE, is an internationally renowned lawyer, speaker and advisor on the future of legal systems, smart contracts, AI and digital assets. Members of our team also contribute to and sit on the steering committees of leading Fintech market groups such as the Tech Disputes Network.
