Loeb & Loeb’s Blockchain team helps clients understand, deploy and integrate this emerging, transformative – and disruptive – technology to their best business advantage.
Our attorneys have long worked at the convergence of business and technology spanning industry sectors. Our interdisciplinary team connects our clients with attorneys experienced in payments technology; information technology and outsourcing transactions; advertising technology; privacy, security and data optimization; and intellectual property, capital markets and corporate law to provide curve-leading knowledge and the business, legal and technical insights necessary to succeed in this dynamic ecosystem.
As blockchain and cryptocurrencies continue to reshape financial technologies, we counsel clients on the legal implications of, among other things, developing utility and securities tokens, issuing digital currencies, and new ways to secure funding, including through Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), Reg A+ offerings and crowd-sourcing alternatives.
Our Blockchain team is well-versed in dealing with all relevant governmental agencies, including the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), as well as state regulators. We help our clients monitor and understand this rapidly evolving regulatory landscape.
Beyond financial services, we help a wide range of clients understand the potential of blockchain. Our attorneys leverage Loeb’s collective knowledge of advertising, media, entertainment, real estate, healthcare, retail and other areas to advise clients on commercial applications of distributed ledger technology. We help clients create enterprise-appropriate blockchain strategies. And we can negotiate agreements for platform participation to ensure the right solutions are implemented in support of clients’ commercial objectives and business initiatives.
