Crypto & Blockchain
Blockchain technology is revolutionizing more than just currency. It’s changing the way we create, socialize, organize, share wealth, and amass the capital to invest in new ideas and products. The cryptovolution has unlocked the possibilities of NFTs (non-fungible tokens), which allow for the authentication of digital artwork and images. It has accelerated the boom in DAOs (decentralized autonomous organizations), digital co-ops that provide innovative frameworks for community governance and crowd-funded investment. And it will, of course, shape how we navigate the virtual experiences of the coming metaverse.
O’Melveny lawyers help both emerging companies and time-tested organizations harness crypto’s innovative potential. Clients across multiple industries—issuers, exchanges, miners, project teams, financial institutions, and more—turn to our cross-disciplinary team for help taking advantage of investment opportunities, protecting intellectual property, ensuring regulatory compliance, and defending their brand and reputation.
