Our expertise in IT, technology and the internet places our lawyers at the forefront of this rapidly-evolving industry, and we routinely assist both individuals and companies in identifying the legal risks and understanding the legal boundaries which their technologies must operate within.
We regularly advise our clients on the legal aspects of initial coin offerings, the impact of regulation in the digital currency space both in the UK and internationally, and in structuring appropriate founder, shareholder, and advisor arrangements. We also advise on compliance matters and contractual issues, including breaches of contract relating to cryptocurrencies. With regard to transactional work, we have recently advised a US-based client on its acquisition of a UK cryptocurrency business.
Our specialists understand how the technology works and actively track developments in this space, which dovetail with our other sector specialisms and award-winning teams in data protection and intellectual property.
