Carrington Coleman partner and head of litigation Alex More is one of two Texas attorneys, and among just 24 nationwide, honored by the National Law Journal as Trailblazers in the area of Cryptocurrency/Blockchain/Fintech law.
An early advocate for blockchain startups and entrepreneurs looking for assistance navigating the myriad emerging legal challenges of this emerging sector, Mr. More was selected to the publication’s 2022 list based upon his groundbreaking work in matters involving virtual tokens, DeFi implementation, financial transactions, emerging regulations, and governmental investigations.
“Current adoption of cryptocurrencies roughly corresponds to adoption of the internet at the turn of the century,” Mr. More told the NLJ. “Countless entrepreneurs seek to develop new blockchain companies backed by a wide range of institutional investors. Meanwhile, regulators struggle to keep up with the pace of innovation. The best lawyers in this space will prove instrumental in bridging the gap between the new technology and the old legal regimes.”
