FinTech start-up - Where can I find regulatory compliance advise?

Hi fellows:


I'm building my FinTech start-up in the U.S. and currently seeking advice in regulatory compliance to make sure we are on the right track and also to do all the necessary filings.


Do you know where I could find that support? Is there any online platform or marketplace that helps with that? (I've checked upwork and it doesn't seem to have enough quality experts in that)


Thanks.

Resources like this at Perkins Coie is a great place to start. This firm is a fantastic option for early stage companies. They might be able to answer your question or point you in the right direction.

The best thing to do is to find someone else that is in the same field and ask them. You probably will need a lawyer to actually do the filings, but then you end up with a chicken/egg situation that you don't know which lawyer to find and what to ask them to do. I can help with Hong Kong, and I know a few things about US securities/fintech law.


Also, you should educate yourself on the basic of compliance and filings, and you might consider going to a bookstore to find a basic legal text on securities or money transmission law. It's like going to a car mechanic. You probably don't want to replace your own transmission, but it's a bad idea to go to a mechanic without an idea as to what a transmission does.
