CRYPTOASSET TOKEN & VIRTUAL CURRENCY BUSINESSES

We have deep expertise in cryptoasset markets and the U.S. and international regulatory framework for cryptoassets and virtual currencies. We engage regularly with the leading regulators and policymakers.

· We bridge the gap between business and regulation – with the outlook of a former regulator who “speaks business” and a businessperson who “speaks regulator”.

· We help clients define business issues in regulatory terms and engage effectively with regulators to obtain necessary clarity.


Fintech & Regtech Innovation 

  • For FinTech innovators - though our work with regulatory sandboxes and innovators around the world, we can help you assess -- and enhance -- your FinTech innovation initiatives. Whether you're a regulator, a bank or an investor, we can help you do better.

  • For RegTech innovators - we help you identify key RegTech challenges and frame marketable strategies.  We can help you package and show your product to regulators, and assess whether they truly solve regulatory and compliance challenges.


Navigate the Regulatory Landscape

The U.S. regulatory landscape is complex and overlapping. We help clients:

  • Identify paths of greater regulatory certainty, aligned with business objectives;

  • Make sense of how best to engage with regulators; and

  • Frame issues to address known regulator concerns.

We also help U.S. clients looking to expand their footprint overseas to understand the international regulatory framework, set priorities and formulate actionable strategy.
