Cryptoassets, blockchain and distributed ledger technology

Cryptoassets used to be dismissed as a temporary fad. Now? Billion-dollar cryptocurrency exchanges, NFT auctions, decentralised finance – and recognition by financial institutions and investors that things might just be getting started.

We've seen an explosion of interest in cryptoassets, blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT). But these technologies also take us beyond the law. The implications of intangible, digital assets are complex, and innovation has outpaced regulation. 

The good news? We've worked at the forefront of new areas of law and regulation for years. We're passionate about finding answers to the big legal questions in the blockchain and crypto market and can help you navigate potential risks while you explore these exciting technologies.

We'll walk you through the processes and platforms in the market using experience gained advising some of today's leading Fintech companies and venture capital investors and our connections with industry bodies.

You'll benefit from our international, cross-practice team with in-depth knowledge of all aspects of the market including: 

  • cryptocurrency exchanges and digital wallets
  • FCA registration and anti-money laundering obligations
  • investment in crypto businesses
  • payments and settlement
  • smart contracts
  • risk management
  • tax and cryptocurrencies 
  • initial coin offerings (ICOs)
  • regulation, cyber security and crime
  • crypto disputes
  • structuring, protecting and recovering crypto assets in insolvencies.
