Firm attorneys serve the transactional, compliance, regulatory, and litigation needs of clients in the cryptocurrency and blockchain industries, including with Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) and other cryptocurrency offerings.
The Firm counsels compliance with and disputes over money services, securities, and derivatives laws, with high-growth fin-tech companies, as well as start ups on the use of decentralized ledgers, including blockchains, to raise funds. We also endeavor successfully to obtain licensing and registration determinations, known as “no-action letters,” for our clients; provide advice to clients on how permissibly to avoid regulation; and advise on pre-sale ICO issues and documentation.
The Firm also defends enforcement actions from state and federal prosecutors and regulators including the SEC, FinCEN, the Department of the Treasury, IRS, and state banking commissions, and is prepared to build on its years of complex business litigation experience to represent individuals and businesses who have disputes.
