Fintech, Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies & ICO

 

Goldblum and Partners provides a full-range of legal services in the sphere of FinTech, Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies and ICO covering all related aspects.

We keep constantly updated on the regulatory framework in these particular, ever-changing areas. We love innovations: Our clients come with challenging, ambitious and creative projects, fuelled by new technologies like blockchain and artificial intelligence. We help our clients build their visionary ideas, while making sure they are compliant with the latest legal requirements. ICO’s, alternative payment systems and exchange platforms are becoming a usual part of our everyday life and they still constitute a partially grey area when it comes to regulation.

Providing us with a privileged spot on these phenomena and their evolution, our offices are located in Zug, at the heart of the Swiss “crypto valley”, and in Zürich, — the financial capital of Switzerland.

Goldblum, its Partners and Attorneys received several prestigious awards. We were top-ranked in the renowned IFLR 1000 for the categories Banking and Finance and M&A and Restructuring both in 2015 and 2016; we have been awarded the M&A Awards 2017 as Best European Corporate Law Firm and received four ACQ Law Awards in 2017 as Business Restructuring Firm, Corporate Law Firm, Capital Markets Law Firm and Game Changer of the Year. Finally, we were awarded the 2017 Corporate INTL as Corporate Firm of the Year in Switzerland.
