About Us

Creed Solicitors is a trusted FinTech law firm with substantial corporate and commercial experience. We help clients understand, negotiate and draft clear legal documentation.

Business owners, boards of directors and heads of compliance need advisers that understand their industry and speak plainly. We slice through the jargon so that our clients know what their legal documentation really says. Our clients comprehend their obligations, what they are signing up to and what they are asking others to sign.  

Creed Solicitors works with payment institutions, electronic money institutions, firms that sell currency options, start-ups and large financial institutions.
