BLOCKCHAIN & CRYPTOCURRENCY

Our firm offers cutting-edge strategic, transactional and regulatory solutions to a wide range of participants in the blockchain and FinTech space – token issuers, cryptocurrency exchanges, traditional and crypto investment funds, as well as businesses and managers looking to integrate blockchain technology into their existing business and investment models. 

We guide our clients through every step of structuring and launching security token offerings (STOs), setting up crypto funds and tokenizing assets like fund interests, real estate, equity/debt instruments, etc.

We also provide comprehensive post-STO legal support to virtual-token sponsors and assist blockchain projects with regulatory licensing requirements, from application of money transmitter laws to obtaining broker-dealer licenses and ATS registrations.

To better serve our clients’ interests, we work diligently to keep abreast of new developments governing this fast-paced industry, including federal and state securities, tax and consumer-protection laws, broker-dealer, anti-money laundering (AML) and know-your-customer (KYC) regulations, as well as the local and international market dynamics.
