Crypto Disputes

Disputes relating to crypto-assets and blockchain/distributed ledger technologies are giving rise to complex and novel legal issues

Crypto Disputes


The accelerating adoption of blockchain/distributed ledger technologies and crypto-assets by established market participants and new entrants alike is changing the world around us. In parallel, the rapid technological and commercial advancements in this emergent space are giving rise to novel issues ranging from the nature of proprietary and security rights in crypto-assets, tracing of and enforcement against crypto-assets, the legal status of new forms of organisations, potential liabilities of intermediaries, developers and programmers, and conflicts of laws.

We are in a unique position to advise clients in disputes of any size and complexity involving crypto-assets, leveraging our deep and extensive expertise in our market-leading transactional and advisory practices, combined with our top-tier disputes practice steeped in complex, high-value, cross-border commercial, corporate and financial disputes, including in the areas of fraud, competition, insolvency, investigations, asset recovery and class-actions.
