With expertise in all aspects of crypto regulation and the rapidly developing legal environment in this space, our team of attorneys helps clients navigate uncertainty to accomplish their objectives.
Gamma Law’s crypto and blockchain lawyers support startups and established businesses with the development and implementation of crypto-based business models. Our comprehensive expertise in crypto encompasses blockchain games (including anti-gambling regulation), token-based financings, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), crypto fund formation, and related matters.
Experts in Crypto and Blockchain-Related Businesses
Gamma Law’s crypto and blockchain lawyers leverage decades of experience supporting cutting-edge companies in the fast-moving technology and content businesses. We have significant experience with SEC regulatory compliance as well as developing guidance from the SEC and other agencies regarding crypto and blockchain. We regularly support crypto clients to navigate securities laws, KYC/AML compliance, money-services business regulations, and other regulatory limitations as they develop and implement their business models.
We are the go-to law firm for clients building metaverse and other video games and virtual-world applications utilizing crypto. No other specialist law firm offers the experience and capabilities that we provide clients in this space. Led by Managing Partner David Hoppe, with nearly 20 years’ experience in video games law and deep experience as a securities and international transactional lawyer, Gamma Law supports the companies building the next generation of virtual experiences to players and metaverse citizens throughout the world.
Drawing on decades of experience in content businesses, we provide value-added legal guidance to clients with NFT tokenizations of visual art as well as physical collectible items, including negotiating agreements with IP owners and advising on appropriate end-user license terms.
Gamma Law’s international experience and cross-border transactional expertise uniquely position our lawyers to support clients with crypto and blockchain systems, which are fundamentally borderless in nature. Effective legal guidance for companies in crypto and blockchain requires counsel with the experience and network of relationships in various jurisdictions to provide comprehensive advice, not limited to the laws of a single country.
Token-Based Financings and Crypto Funds
Token-based financings continue to provide emerging companies with funding opportunities that are unavailable through conventional public or private channels. However, volatility and regulatory uncertainty make experienced legal support a crucial component of any token-based financing plan. Similarly, the formation of and fundraising for crypto and token investment funds necessitates the support of crypto lawyers who are familiar with longstanding securities regulatory practices and interpretations as well as current applications.
Securities and Finance Background
A unicorn among boutique law firms, Gamma Law possesses decades of experience in securities finance, securities regulation, and SEC matters. Gamma Law lawyers have worked with premier Wall Street law firms, managing multi-billion dollar debt and equity financings, investment fund formations, and securities transactions. Our experience includes advising on securities compliance for domestic and offshore offerings and private placements, broker-dealer and exchange regulations, federal and state money-services business and wire-transfer laws, and token-related licensing/IP issues.
An in-depth understanding of securities regulations and current SEC interpretations is essential when planning and executing token-based financings, forming investment funds, fundraising, and participating in secondary-market transactions.
Gamma Law’s industry expertise allows us to provide perspectives and insights regarding potentially critical issues and risks that arise daily and of which relative newcomers to the space may be unaware.
