Dedicated Emerging Growth Practice We have a dedicated Emerging Growth practice that works exclusively with start-ups and the investor community. This team is based in Austin, Texas, one of the fastest growing tech hubs, and works seamlessly with colleagues from Silicon Valley and New York to London, Singapore and Dubai. Our Emerging Growth team provides FinTech companies with strategic advice for each stage of growth. Our firm is closely linked with major banks and financial institutions in the U.S., U.K, Europe and Asia. With the increase in mergers and joint ventures, our longstanding relationships in the sector are helping to enable partnerships, financing and deeper collaboration between financial institutions and FinTechs.
