Virtual Tokens & Blockchain Technology

Behind the media buzz about bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), and distributed ledgers, a dynamic regulatory scheme is taking shape to govern these new technologies. While businesses work to develop and adopt new and innovative applications of virtual tokens and blockchain technology, our team works to stay on the cutting edge of related legal issues. We advise clients regarding regulatory risk and compliance in connection with investments in virtual tokens and blockchain technology, tokenized asset offerings, and so-called smart contracts. As these emerging technologies have increasingly drawn the attention of state and federal agencies such as the SEC, CFTC, FINRA, and FinCEN, proactive legal risk assessment and compliance efforts have become more important than ever for those looking to do business in this space.  Likewise, for those potentially under investigation for possible regulatory violations, effective response and defense depend upon counsel knowledgeable about virtual token and blockchain-specific issues. Our attorneys have knowledge and experience derived both from active interest and engagement with virtual token and blockchain development, and from representation of individuals and businesses investing in and developing virtual token and blockchain applications.
