Our multi-disciplinary team advises the world's largest virtual asset investment businesses, including virtual asset funds, managers, lenders, traders, consultants, brokers and custodians.

With experts across our jurisdictions - including BVI, Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Ireland, Jersey and Luxembourg - we bring a global perspective to our work with clients, which includes launching cryptocurrency and blockchain related funds, both hedge and venture capital, plus private sales, airdrops and grants of tokens and non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and a variety of fundraising.

Crypto funds
We advise crypto fund managers with all aspects of the fund launch, from structuring to regulatory matters.

We assist with a variety of fundraising activities, including private and seed-round fundraising for token launches, raising capital via simple agreements for future tokens/equities, as well as subsequent token launches and series nancing.

VASP regulation
Our global team can offer cross-border advice on evolving regulation for virtual assets service providers (VASPs).
