Ryne Miller, the former U.S. general counsel of cryptocurrency exchange FTX, has started his own New York-based firm that will advise digital asset and blockchain companies and traditional financial firms on regulation, regulatory investigations and crisis management.

In an interview with Law.com, Miller said he came up with the idea for Miller Strategic Partners  after he left FTX in March. With his background and experience with trading and markets, digital assets and government investigations, he said it made sense to set up his own shop.
