Cryptoassets

We'll guide you through every stage of the process.

We’re one of the few law firms with proven regulatory expertise in blockchain and cryptocurrency.

We’ve been involved in cutting-edge projects on regulation, fund raising, and Initial Coin Offerings (‘ICOs’). We verify white papers, advise on the regulatory position of cryptocurrencies and tokens (security, utility and exchange), and draft pre-seed, pre-sale, and sale documentation.

If you’re thinking about using blockchain or distributed ledger technology for your business, we can guide you through all stages of the process. We work with a variety of organisations – from early-stage start-ups to large corporations that want to leverage blockchain technology to work more efficiently.
