Loeb Web3 Manager Gian Pastore spoke to several publications – including The Recorder, Global Legal Post and Law360 – about joining the firm and his newly created position to support Loeb’s clients on blockchain and Web 3.0-related projects.
Gian, who joined the firm in early August 2022, will help clients set up and maintain digital wallets, acquire blockchain domains, launch cryptocurrencies and provide guidance on purchasing land in the metaverse, among other matters. He brings with him non-legal technical experience in cryptocurrencies, NFTs, virtual reality, blockchain domains and the metaverse.
“Given Loeb’s practice platform, we are uniquely suited to advise clients on all manner of Web 3.0 issues, and are already actively supporting clients across numerous industries on this topic,” Melanie Howard, chair of Loeb’s Intellectual Property and Luxury Brands practices and Deputy chair of its Advanced Media and Technology department, said in an interview with The Global Legal Post. “The addition of Gian amplifies the services we are able to offer our clients and evidences our commitment to continue to be a leader in this space.”
Gian’s position will allow the firm to remain on the edge of developments in cryptocurrency, NFTs, blockchain and the metaverse. “While this is a budding industry, Loeb & Loeb is a cutting edge firm with the foundation in place to lead the field,” Gian told The Recorder.
