Securities and Cryptocurrencies

Gamma Law regularly advises on securities regulatory matters, including unregistered securities transactions (domestic and international), establishment of SEC-registered funding portals, crowdfunding issues, Rule 506(c) placements and cryptocurrencies.

Cryptocurrencies exist at the intersection of technology and finance. Cryptocurrency markets have provided many emerging companies with funding opportunities that were not available to them through conventional public or private channels, but volatility and regulatory uncertainty make legal support a critical part of any cryptocurrency financing plan.

Combining its longstanding technology-focused practice and extensive experience in securities regulatory matters, Gamma Law is uniquely positioned to advise on cryptocurrency issues, and has been a first-mover in supporting clients in this new sector.

Gamma Law’s securities experience includes dozens of registered public offerings, unregistered private placements, venture capital financings and angel financings. With respect to cryptocurrencies, Gamma Law’s experience includes:

  • Advising on a potential initial coin offering (ICO)
  • Advising on possible officer/director liabilities and defenses with respect to representations made in an ICO.
  • Advising on risks/benefits of ICOs compared with other recent private financing exemptions, such as “Reg A+” and Rule 506 (c)(3).
