The Digital Assets and Blockchain Technology group at Curtis leverages its global platform and multidisciplinary expertise to advise on the legal, regulatory, transactional, and public policy issues involving the rapidly developing virtual currency, digital assets, and blockchain industry.
Our blockchain attorneys have expertise in the various practice areas that touch upon the crypto industry including capital markets and securities litigation, finance, private equity and venture capital, commodities, bankruptcy, mergers & acquisitions, economic sanctions, funds and investment management, tax, white-collar litigation, national security law, data privacy and cybersecurity, and energy and environmental law.
Outside of the crypto-assets market, our Firm has also advised clients in the implementation of blockchain projects for industrial uses, often leveraging on smart contracts usage.
The cryptocurrency, digital assets and blockchain environment is emerging swiftly. Most regulatory efforts to date have focused on the application of securities, financial, and anti-money laundering regulations to virtual assets and crypto-related activities. This de facto prioritization is both a factor of the importance of the policy objectives underpinning these regulations (consumer protection, financial stability, the fight against illicit activities), as well as the fact that many digital assets and crypto-related activities fall within the purview of existing regulations in these areas.
Investors, project sponsors, and developers increasingly rely on Curtis to advise on the application of existing regulations and laws, management of risk and adherence to best practices, and on the rapidly evolving regulatory environment.
We draw from our diverse backgrounds to help clients in the various stages of the crypto lifecycle including coin and token structuring and offering, fundraising and fund formation, financial regulation and registration, asset-backed digital assets, technology licensing and development, regulatory compliance and enforcement, crypto-related litigation, and digital assets exchanges and trading.
As the industry evolves, Curtis is well positioned to advise clients on new applications of distributed ledger technologies beyond the financial sector. Our team can offer creative and pragmatic solutions to enable new business cases while managing regulatory and other legal risks.
Curtis’ global platform allows us to tackle the inherent multijurisdictional nature of the digital assets industry and advise on the overlapping regulatory framework and regimes at the state, federal, and international levels.
