We embrace the potential of innovation to make lasting impact, and we partner with companies that are shaping the future of digital currency and blockchain in rapidly developing areas such as:

  • Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). We work with companies as they explore the bounds of NFTs in a variety of areas such as real estate, music and other digital content, and gaming. Our experience includes advising on due diligence, investing, intellectual property, securities, financings, regulations, compliance, dispute resolution and estate planning. 
  • Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs). We counsel clients on the full spectrum of legal considerations facing DAOs, including operations and investing.
