Blockchain and Virtual Currency


Anderson Kill's Blockchain and Virtual Currency group is a cross-disciplinary team of lawyers with experience across a wide range of legal practice areas.  Led by Stephen Palley, a seasoned litigator with deep experience in software design and development well-known in the cryptocurrency community, the group provides legal advice in areas as diverse as litigation, trial practice, insurance coverage, tax, intellectual property, corporate/transactional and employment law.

Blockchain technology has generated both business opportunities as well as cutting edge legal issues that our lawyers are well suited to address.  The fact that the technology is new does not mean that legal precedent is unavailable to guide our clients.  We believe that what our clients need is legal experience, first and foremost.  We are lawyers, not "CryptoLawyers".

We have the agility and knowledge to guide clients to navigate technologically driven legal pitfalls and maximize their business opportunities.  We also bring significant litigation ability, including trial experience, to bear, when disputes arise.
We work with businesses at all stages of development – from start-ups to established businesses – to help our clients create compliance driven software solutions.  When disputes arise, our experienced litigators and trial lawyers are able to advise clients in connection with disputes that arise in connection with this quickly changing area of technology and to provide representation in state and federal courts across the United States.
