Digital Securities and Tokenization

Digital Securities

Our attorneys have advised issuers of digital securities since as early as 2018, and have gained understanding and experience crucial to navigating complex questions of law and technology faced by issuers. Digital securities can represent ownership interests in a variety of entities and indirectly in any type of asset. The benefits of blockchain and smart contract technology allow for the issuance of securities in a secure and transparent manner. Importantly, digital securities may be issued in compliance with, rather than in contravention, of existing regulations.
