Blockchain Advisory Services
At Curry Law, you can rely on use to properly analyze and evaluate the facts and circumstances surrounding your current or planned usage of blockchain technology for legal risk and liability. We will advise you on the best course of action to take, depending on the stage of your blockchain project, for this rapidly evolving legal environment. Such actions may be remedial and taken in collaboration with regulators in a constructive dialogue to mitigate the liability exposure as much as possible, where there has been an arguable violation of laws governing your blockchain project (e.g., federal and state securities laws, money transmitter laws, among others). Other actions are prospective based on your proposed blockchain project, and include the submission of no-action relief or administrative ruling request letters to various regulators such as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, FinCEN, and state regulators governing securities, commodities and currencies. Curry Law received the first-ever favorable no-action relief response regarding the offer and sale of blockchain tokens from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Division of Corporation Finance.
Blockchain Litigation Representation
In the event that your current blockchain project has taken funds from project participants and you are now embroiled in controversies with federal or state regulators and the project participants, you can rely on Curry Law to effectively help extricate you from your situation and mitigate to the greatest extent possible your legal liability and risk exposure. We take a proactive approach and seek to collaborate with regulators in this regard, since the blockchain legal environment is nascent and developing which made it easy to run afoul of securities laws, among others, in a rush to develop your project. To that end, we will work with regulators to develop an acceptable mitigation plan, which may include rescission of any contracts that your project participants entered into and refunds of any funds received from them.
