As demand grows for legal services in cryptocurrency and nonfungible tokens (NFTs), law firms are bolstering their expertise across the U.S.

That includes Atlanta, where several law firms are seeing growing business opportunities tied to NFTs, which are digital certificates registered on a blockchain to show ownership of an asset. The economic growth of NFTs has law firms vying to become a market leader in the space, as it encompasses a host of practice areas, such as data security, intellectual property, public policy and a number of others.
