A deluge of lawyers from mainstream financial backgrounds are jumping to crypto companies, lured in by the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of an industry they believe will alter society for the better and provide them with significant financial rewards.

“The emerging crypto legal space is attracting talent in droves and will likely continue to do so. The technology is exciting. Forward-thinking lawyers want to be a part of an industry structured around a rapidly developing game-changing technology,” said Tal Lifshitz, a partner with Kozyak Tropin & Throckmorton in Coral Gables, Florida.
