Blockchain Technology and Disruptive Enterprises

Distributed-ledger technologies are the future

As the underlying foundation for transactions across industries, not only finance, but healthcare, entertainment, sports, advertising, e-gaming, governmental operations, and much more, blockchain technology is here to stay. We understand and appreciate these facts. 

Like any disruptive technology, blockchain presents tremendous opportunities, but also creates legal and regulatory (and thereby, business) challenges. This has been compounded by the degree of ambiguity and uncertainty created by regulatory agencies’ evolving positions on how to classify and manage projects on the blockchain.

Fisher Cataliotti is uniquely positioned as one of the preeminent boutique practices capable of navigating this complex and developing area. We routinely advise entities of all sizes, from start-up ventures to industry mainstays, about an array of legal and business matters that include: 

  • Global, federal, and state regulatory frameworks;
  • Technology transactions;
  • Mergers and acquisitions; 
  • Venture capital and private investments;
  • Capital markets and securities;
  • Public policy and government affairs; and
  • Tax considerations.

And because we believe that as with any industry, a solid foundation must exist in order for that industry to grow and thrive, we have continued to be sought after as advisers to developers and those who seek to build off of this distributed-ledger infrastructure.
