K/G Expands Fintech & Crypto Capabilities with the Addition of Christopher Brown

We are thrilled to announce that Austin fintech veteran Christopher Brown has joined Kastner Gravelle as a partner in our corporate group.  Chris will lead a team advising K/G’s fintech and other emerging company and investor clients on corporate, licensing and other commercial transactions. He will also advise companies that are adopting blockchain, crypto and Web3 strategies as part of the next wave of innovation, where these tools and platforms become more integrated into mainstream finance and commerce, but in an increasingly regulated environment.

After leading the corporate department in the Austin office of Baker Botts, Chris has continued to establish himself as a preeminent fintech lawyer in Austin and beyond in both private practice and as General Counsel of Netspend, a global payments company (through its IPO), and Self, a consumer credit building startup and Austin unicorn.

Chris has devoted the last 20+ years to helping clients navigate their businesses through complex and ever-changing financial regulatory landscapes and is a recognized leader in advising fintech and other regulated businesses through their strategic corporate, licensing and other commercial transactions. He is a regular presenter and moderator at technology law conferences on topics ranging from digital money, smart contracts, and disruptive business models with which existing laws and regulations have not kept pace.
