Why get legal assistance

The cryptocurrency lawyers on LawTrades can provide proactive online legal planning to keep your Bitcoin or other cryptocurrency running smoothly during potentially rocky times. Emerging cryptocurrencies, wallet providers, smart contract services, digital miners, and cryptocurrency investors need a reliable legal service as they maneuver through complex financial cryptocurrency regulations and the legal ambiguities of this emerging digital market.

Our cryptocurrency lawyers are licensed across the country and are able to provide both the local regulatory support and the broad corporate guidance cryptocurrency businesses need to succeed. In addition to our cryptocurrency and Bitcoin lawyers’ experience in the cryptocurrency space, LawTrades attorneys are available to help with corporate law, intellectual property, commercial litigation, regulatory compliance, SEC and finance cryptocurrency regulations, tax law, employment law, and international law. 

Because cryptocurrencies are so innovative, they continue to defy traditional legal categories and definitions since the advent of Bitcoin. So it is imperative for cryptocurrency startups to consult the legal expertise of the attorneys who are helping to shape the new legal framework for cryptocurrencies and are actively up to date on all of the relevant case law where much of the regulatory policy for these digital currencies is being written. Our attorneys can also help cryptocurrency startups with the implementation of SEC compliant initial coin offerings (ICOs).  

Popular Projects

ICOs – Initial Coin Offerings

Initial Coin Offerings are a modern fundraising tool that allows selling tokens for nascent cryptocurrencies. They’re now widely used by blockchain startup companies as a mean of raising capital. As a rule, ICO campaigns are started before the release of a new coin and typically range between $5,000 and $10,000. LawTrades has multiple cryptocurrency attorneys with ICO experience. 

Smart Contracts

Smart contracts are the programs that encourage and execute the purchasing agreement between the sides of sales by means of blockchain technology. These contracts are also defined as self-executing, as their workflow is predefined by the block of code. Their main goal lies in enabling two parties to trade and carry on business on the Internet without a third party, in most cases anonymously. An ICO lawyer or cryptocurrency lawyer on LawTrades can usually assist with smart contracts beginning at $500, but can go as high as many thousands. 

Federal and State Regulation

Regulation may be by specific digital currency statute or cryptocurrency regulation, under existing money transmitter law and by court cases. In addition to the Federal and different state rules in this area, we also have to consider two main levels of regulatory approach: statutes/regulations and court interpretation. 

Taxation

Digital currencies have characteristics of traditional tax haven jurisdictions: earnings are not reported to the IRS and users are provided some level of anonymity. Unlike traditional tax havens, however, digital currencies are able to operate without involving a financial institution. 

Securities Regulation 

Securities regulation focuses on two different legal issues involving cryptocurrencies — investments purchased with Bitcoins and investing in Bitcoins. The SEC has been active in investigating issues related to Bitcoins and has published an investor alert on Bitcoin and other virtual currency-related investments. 

The benefits

Stay compliant 
 
Most cryptocurrency startups are founded by incredibly talented computer programmers and business entrepreneurs. Ultimately they aren’t getting into the software or marketing industry, but into the heavy-handed regulatory environment of the finance industry where they will need specialized legal help to succeed. 

Gain a fresh perspective 
 
Should your company be formed as an LLC? How about a Delaware C-Corp? An experienced cryptocurrency lawyer will consider your goals and lead you down the best route for your business.

Be prepared 

Cryptocurrency lawyers and ICO lawyers who assist your startup in its early stages can steer you away from obstacles and dead ends early on, and will have a greater familiarity of your company and its needs in the future, rather than a random lawyer you’re forced to hire when something goes wrong.

Vik S.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
After using Lawtrades, I was able to effeciently find a qualified IP lawyer to help accelerate my start-up. The platform is user friendly and supplies a quality list of competent attorneys you are freely able to connect with. Would recommend this service to anyone trying to make legal connections.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
LawTrades has been pivotal for us by providing great legal advice and simplify things for us to understand exactly what and why we needed to do x,y and z. I remember I heard about the platform at a Meetup event and all I needed to do was follow up with one of the founders to ask for general advice. I was then directed to their website where I linked up with an attorney through a click of a button. Almost everything from there on became automated. We incorporated quickly and efficiently without breaking the bank. I have since used the platform several times again for things like our Privacy Policy, Terms of Use and Vendor Agreements and Lawtrades has always lived up to its standards of makings things simpler and more cost effective. Very pleased with the platform and will continue to handle my legal work through it. A little bonus point. They’ve been very generous and every time I referred someone to the platform I got a discount on my next project. Highly recommend!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Both times I’ve had the experience any startup founder wants - a simple, quality experience, delivered quickly at the best possible price. That’s what I feel I got. After having a terrible 4 month long experience trying to set up a local US business bank account (being a non US resident) with one branch, which eventually fell through, both Jared and Ashish helped me establish an account with one of their partnered banks in a matter of weeks, for a grand total of $0. Massive pain killer. Disclosure - I was paying for other services (Terms of Service, Privacy Policy, company setup etc), but they knew this banking situation was causing me serious problems and they helped facilitate the opening seamlessly, and as Shane Ballman mentioned above, without nickle and dimeing.

Frequently asked
questions

What’s the legal difference between cryptocurrency, bitcoin, and blockchains?
The blockchain is acknowledged by law as what it is - a remarkable implementation of computer software with unique and useful properties. Some of these properties lend the blockchain to challenging legal questions such as in jurisdictional law. Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are classified as virtual currencies and subject to tax law, securities regulation, and Financial Criminal Enforcement Network regulations.
What services are offered by LawTrades cryptocurrency business lawyers?
Common projects performed by our virtual currency lawyers include business formation, securing permits and licenses, registering trademarks and patents, drafting and reviewing business contracts, assisting with rounds of fundraising including ICOs, implementing website agreements and privacy policies, sorting through tax issues, and helping with securities law. We have cryptocurrency lawyers with experience doing everything above and much more.
Why shouldn’t I just research the law and do it myself?
You could but you’re exposing yourself to major risk. Financial law is complicated and cryptocurrency lawyers spend years and countless dollars in law school, then do their journaling, then work for law firms learning the law inside and out. Hiring a professional will undoubtedly save you a lot of time and money.
Can I use free legal templates available online instead of hiring a lawyer? 
You could go that route, but again you’re exposing yourself to risk. Those sites certainly have limitations, largely in that their forms are standardized and may leave out important details specific to your company. This is particular try for companies in the cryptocurrency space. Most of the contracts you’ll need are highly specialized so it will require a cryptocurrency lawyer who has the requisite experience to draft an ironclad agreement.
Does LawTrades accept payment in Bitcoin?
Not at this time, but hopefully soon! However, we do have a series of payment options available to our customers.
