Our Experience


  • Represented an early-stage venture capital firm regarding their investment into a crypto asset management startup, to address concerns of future token issuance.
  • Advised a decentralized exchange on U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) regulatory issues regarding the Securities Act of 1933 and the Bank Secrecy Act.
  • Assisted an NFT platform with anchoring educational content to the blockchain involving intellectual property and securities issues
  • Advised a creator of online gaming platform on the issuance of virtual currency, which can be used within the game or on third-party platforms, and on the application of federal (FinCEN) and state money transmitter laws to the creator’s gaming platform.
  • Advised companies in the banking and finance sectors on the legal, regulatory, and business implications of adopting blockchain technology.
  • Engaged with policymakers, federal agencies, and entities in the private sector to educate them about our client, a provider of blockchain and AI technologies, and identify and build business opportunities and relationships.
  • Represented a digital currency trading brokerage firm, which will provide trade quality and customer-focused tools and technology to help customers to become successful digital currency traders. We assisted the entity with its application to the SEC to become an alternative trading system, and in communications with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) for approval and are assisting them in applications to become a money transfer business in all 50 states.
  • Defended a digital currency trader in a dispute with his trading partner, a large player in the cryptocurrency market. After negotiating a trade, our client discovered he had been hacked and lacked the necessary cryptocurrency to complete the trade. Anticipating delivery from our client, the plaintiff negotiated subsequent trades with third parties and suffered substantial financial losses purchasing the replacement cryptocurrency needed to cover those trades. We successfully argued that the plaintiff had not followed the protocol set forth by its own trade agreement, which it had required our client to sign, and therefore our client was not liable.
