Operating from across the world’s major financial centres, our digital assets, blockchain, and cryptocurrency experts provide a comprehensive and joint-up legal service to clients globally.
Our cross-jurisdictional and multi-disciplinary teams possess a proven track record in the digital assets market. From investors and FinTech start-ups to incumbent financial services companies, we are experienced in advising and leading clients across the entirety of the digital asset life cycle.
We routinely assist and work with DEXs, NFT marketplaces, DAOs, digital asset funds and more, navigating this dynamic regulatory landscape, including advising on licensing secondary markets for structured products, product design, regulatory preparation, building tokens/smart contracts and other product offerings. We are not learning on the job, and indeed have created our own proprietary smart contracts/are exploring how blockchain technology can assist our firm.
For more established market players and global digital payments providers, we advise on a variety of legal matters in this space, including entering and expanding within the FinTech and e-payments sector; through partnerships and joint venture, acquisitions and innovative distribution channels; setting up cryptocurrency exchanges; initial token offerings, as well as navigating clients through the evolving and multi-jurisdictional regulated environment impacting the sector.
To complement our client offering and remain at the forefront of policy formation, we are key figures when working with Government, Treasury and the relevant regulators in shaping the regulation in and of digital assets. We were recently awarded Best Regulatory Advisor for 2023 by Hedgeweek at their APAC Digital Assets Awards. Several of our partners are recognised thought leaders in this field, and part-time academics teaching in this space.
Supporting our advisory specialists is a cross-jurisdictional team of litigation and dispute resolution experts, with experience in financial, commercial and technology related disputes in the fintech sector, covering areas of intellectual property, real estate, construction, commercial agreements and white-collar crime. We are involved in multiple arbitrations in connection with digital assets.
