What are some of your proudest achievements from the past year? We were delighted and honored to have collaborated with our client ConsenSys, a thought leader and innovator in the blockchain technology space, on the Automated Convertible Note. The OpenLaw-based online document generator helps startups raise capital with customizable market standard terms and optional digital token provisions. The free-to-use tool builds in protections and much needed flexibility to navigate securities regulatory concerns in nascent token projects. Also, the tool addresses the commodities regulatory issues present in investment structures that offer the investor a right to tokens. We are gratified that the novel document generator has been positively received, and a large number of entrepreneurs and startups are using the tool to efficiently raise capital and push forward with their innovations, particularly in this critical and fast-evolving market.

In general we are delighted to work with our visionary clients—major banks, technology giants, and startups—navigate their most complex business decisions, whether they’re considering the regulatory implications of establishing a new cryptoasset, adopting a new technology or system, or investing in, or acquiring, a fintech company. We also play a key role in educating trade associations and government regulators about developments in financial technology and market infrastructure as they determine how best to regulate the rapidly evolving sector. Notably, in the last year we advised Energy Web Foundation, a global nonprofit distributed ledger technology foundation, in connection with the offering of its technology platform to US customers and navigating the concerns of the SEC. In 2019 Energy Web Foundation launched the Energy Web Chain, the world’s first open-source, enterprise blockchain platform tailored to the energy sector.
