Cryptocurrency may have begun as a novel way to purchase goods and services online, but the world of digital coin assets has exploded in recent times. Now cryptocurrencies are being viewed as digital securities and are attracting the interest of serious investors. While the most popular form of cryptocurrency is the blockchain-backed Bitcoin, there are many other options, some of which are increasing in adoption. In addition, enterprising financiers are launching initial coin offerings, or ICOs, an uncharted territory in terms of law and regulation.
Freeborn’s Emerging Technologies Industry Team is comprised of attorneys from various areas who have deep experience with securities law, fraud and litigation. We assist clients with a number of aspects of cryptocurrencies, including providing counsel on the current status of cryptocurrency and ICO regulations. We also can assist in navigating clients through the ICO process, from the initial filing to the actual launch. In addition, our litigators serve as advocates for both plaintiffs and defendants in claims of fraud against entities involved in ICOs.
