What we do
Our long track record of working with blockchain and other emerging technologies allows us to provide efficient, actionable advice as clients pursue the untapped possibilities of blockchain technology, from innovative financing structures—such as token generation events, bespoke security tokens and conventional venture financing structures that integrate token exposure—to applications beyond cryptocurrency.
We tailor approaches that comply with state, federal and international regulations by drawing on our deep understanding of blockchain technology and of the enforcement priorities of key regulators.
We also offer counsel that extends across the spectrum of clients’ business concerns, from corporate structuring and fund formation to protecting and licensing IP, resolving litigation and disputes, navigating regulatory hurdles, and helping companies structure operations internationally.
