Cryptocurrency Law

All things considered, cryptocurrency is still a nascent field for which lawmakers and the judiciary have yet to set national governing standards. But a dearth of federal regulations doesn't mean the market is a lawless free-for-all. In fact, several states have already passed cryptocurrency laws.

Fintech businesses must comply with various SEC regulations and crowdfunding parameters. And if that's not enough, since cryptocurrency is very much a decentralized and global affair, in many instances, investors and businesses must also mind international finance laws.

If you have questions or concerns about a Bitcoin, Ethereum, or altcoin legal issue, our fintech law firm is a resource for solutions. We work with blockchain startups and ICOs, individual investors, venture capital firms, and businesses with cryptocurrency legal concerns.
