Blockchain Technology

Shipkevich recognizes the rapid advancement of financial technology (FinTech) in all industries and the need for a blockchain or virtual currency attorney. Right now, digital currencies are becoming a new way of raising capital for innovative project ideas. A Shipkevich virtual currency attorney understands the benefits of hosting digital currency offerings, from its implementation through distributive ledger technology, or blockchain, to simply its efficient and industry changing fundraising method. However, as federal agencies like the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) are getting more involved in overseeing digital currency implementation, it becomes increasingly challenging for companies to sort out the legalities of hosting digital currency offerings in the United States.


Shipkevich’s blockchain and cryptocurrency team is uniquely positioned to help clients develop and implement blockchain strategies and navigate the complex legal and regulatory environment surrounding cryptocurrencies and crypto-assets in the US and across the globe.The firm has a diverse, talented group of professionals and virtual currency lawyers who have extensive legal experience in dealing with traditional capital markets, foreign exchange, introducing brokers, corporate governance, cases that involve the Dodd-Frank Act, and industry-leading companies developing new technology in the FinTech, digital currency, and blockchain spaces..


Our professionals have years of experience with FinTech cases regarding e-commerce and the establishment of payment systems for both domestic and international entities. Our expertise in conventional practice areas, combined with our knowledge in law pertinent to blockchain and digital currency, ensure that our clients avoid potential legal hurdles.


Our firm is aware that many domestic and offshore companies judiciously avoid having digital currency distributions in the United States to avoid legal issues. We invite all domestic and offshore digital currency hosting entities to connect with Shipkevich blockchain attorneys services to allow U.S. citizens to participate and invest in the offerings.
