BWB has combined its expertise in financial services, venture capital and corporate finance to establish a dedicated Crowdfunding and Peer-to-Peer Lending practice.

Our Crowdfunding and Peer-to-Peer Lending practice provides advice to:

  • businesses seeking to establish crowdfunding and peer-to-peer lending platforms;
  • investors considering investing in crowdfunding and peer-to-peer lending platforms;
  • businesses seeking to raise capital by listing on these platforms; and
  • businesses seeking to raise capital using similar methods, such as mini-bonds.

We are able to advise on the full range of regulatory and commercial issues for businesses engaging in these activities.

We see the extraordinary growth in crowdfunding as part of a trend which we expect, over the next decade, to mirror the growth in online retail activity over the last decade. Alongside our client advisory work, we are also advocates for regulatory reform in the area of crowdfunding, to create a stable platform for industry development.

We believe in the twin powers of the internet and consumer choice and see crowdfunding as part of a wider democratic finance movement. Our commitment to crowdfunding is an expression of our ethos, which involves a commitment to the public interest.

BWB has been advisor, secretary and supporter to the UK Crowdfunding Association since its formation.
