Our lawyers have extensive experience representing every player in the payments ecosystem, from banks, merchants, and processors to card networks, card issuers, and fintech, in complex litigation across the country. We have prevailed on behalf of our clients in disputes between payments industry participants (business-to-business disputes) and in suits filed by consumers (business-to-consumer disputes), including class actions. Our thorough understanding of the payments industry enables us to effectively communicate the complex structure, customs, and language to judges, arbitrators, and juries. We also regularly work with Alston & Bird’s leading Payment Systems team to advise clients before litigation arises.
A number of our lawyers focus their practices on payments industry disputes and closely monitor developments affecting payments companies, from both litigation and regulatory perspectives. We publish articles and updates designed to keep our clients informed about legal developments and trends impacting the rapidly evolving payments industry.
