Saman is the lead commercial lawyer at Checkout.com, the London Fintech that offers seamless and reliable payment processing to enterprise businesses across the globe, in over 150 different currencies. Checkout.com recently completed its series B fundraising that values the company at $5.5bn – making it one of the most valuable Fintech’s in the world.
Prior to working at Checkout.com Saman was a Senior Legal Counsel at GoCardless, an online provider of bank to bank payment solutions that aims to make accepting recurring payments as simple as possible. Before that Saman was in-house at RateSetter, who provide an online peer-to-peer lending platform and he trained and practised in FieldFisher’s top-rated Technology, Outsourcing and Privacy team. Saman’s in-house experience at disruptive, high-growth, Fintechs has opened the door to a new world of fast-paced product development cycles and he’s learned to adapt legal advice to fit these processes and ways of working; whilst keeping the business compliant with its regulatory obligations. Outside of work, Saman is the dedicated father of a 4-year-old boy and passionate about playing as much sport as possible (when dad duties allow).
