Zeidler Group, a tech-driven law firm, has opened its first office in Melbourne, Australia, to support its expansion into the APAC region.
With this new office, the company is positioning itself to become the true one-shop stop solution for Australian asset managers.
Zeidler Group founder and CEO Arne Zeidler said that the company will also look to release a host of new legal and compliance services to its existing and prospective clients.
He added, “Although we have existing Australian clients and our Australia-specific TMD solution, our new office further demonstrates our commitment to client service excellence and true collaboration and meaningful partnerships with our existing and prospective clients in the region.”
Zeidler Group specialises in investment funds law and provides asset management firms with easy to integrate legal, compliance and data solutions. Its mission is to transform the compliance space through research-driven legal expertise, automated workflows and digital innovation.
Its technology is currently used by over 200 clients with aggregate assets under management above $1trn.
Zeidler Group Australia associate compliance officer Sherry Teo said, “It is exciting to be involved with the expansion within the APAC region, as part of such a talented and multi-disciplined team that powerfully combines streamlined technology, quality and practical legal oversight and regulatory compliance guidance to bring robust legal, compliance and data solutions to better serve the financial services industry.”
The RegTech company has been accelerating its growth over the past year. It recently named Valentin Chantereau as the head of legal in its Paris office, which he helped launch.
Another senior appointment this year for Zeidler Group was Thilo Zeidler, who joined as its new CFO and the product owner of various data products. In a recent interview with FinTech Global, Zeidler explained he will be helping the company expand around the world, whilst ensuring current clients are still being supported.
“We want to make sure that the expansion doesn’t harm the experience that the clients have, because we believe they are very happy and they feel they are being taken care of on an individual basis,” he said. “With the expansion there will be the need of extra focus on being able to continue providing that kind of service.”
